The Florida State Seminoles have lost a bit of their luster in college football the last few seasons, but it’s nice for them to be able to see another powerhouse program in the same ACC division struggling at their expense.
The Seminoles are up 13-10 on the Clemson Tigers early in Week 9 courtesy of a wild touchdown from RB Lawrance Toafili.

You’ve got a classic mismatch on a running back wheel route, which is the only normal moment of this play. Toafili gets brought down but manages to land perfectly on the Clemson defender and never touch the ground, meaning the play is still live. He has the awareness to recognize not only that he’s not down, but that he’s near the sideline.
Toafili manages to stay tip-toe inside the sideline the rest of the way for a crazy score. In a season where nothing has gone right for both schools, Florida State gets a big break thanks to a truly special play.
