FSU Edges Michigan in Wild Orange Bowl, 33-32

Chris Evans had a 30-yard run to give the Wolverines the lead with less than two minutes to play.

The sophomore receiver, who measures an unassuming 5-foot-11, rose above MI consensus All-American cornerback Jourdan Lewis and came down with the game-winning touchdown during No. 11 Florida State's 33-32 win over the No. 5 Wolverines.

McCray would then take the football and force his way into the end zone for the pick-six.

MI got the ball back but was racing against the clock, and Speight was intercepted by FSU freshman Carlos Becker III to seal the victory for the Seminoles.

I think there is talent on every team and confidence goes a long way, though. "Just come in and help the team in any way I could". Louis and Carolina, Butler's goal-line interception against Seattle - involved the quarterback, which is an instructive point.

But on a MI punt, Murray made a mistake by trying to catch the ball while running backward toward the end zone instead of letting it bounce.

It didn't matter early, as Florida State marched down the field easily on its first drive led by Cook, its All-America tailback, who finished the game with 145 rushing yards and 62 receiving yards. The Seminoles also improved to 6-0 at Hard Rock Stadium under Fisher.

Cook led the way for FSU the entire night, finishing with 145 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries while catching three passes for 62 yards.

After Florida State stopped MI on its first drive, Murray bobbled the punt return and MI recovered, giving the Wolverines the football at the Florida State 1-yard line. Kyle Meyers, another true freshman, has been a pleasant surprise in how well and how much he has contributed in year one at Florida State. The Seminoles held a MI team that averaged 6.06 yards per play and 439.3 yards per game entering Friday to 3.4 yards per play and 252 total yards, the Wolverines' second lowest yardage mark this season.

USA military admits Mosul hospital airstrike may have killed civilians
Some 100,000 Iraqi troops, Kurdish security forces, and Shi'ite militiamen are involved in the operation. When government forces liberate an area, most civilians act quickly to try to evacuate.

Quarterback Deondre Francois and receiver Nyqwan Murray both committed turnovers that led to points for MI on Friday night.

Francois found Cook on a 45-yard strike on the first play of the next series, putting the Seminoles in scoring position.

As the Seminoles tried to protect their double-digit lead and move the ball down the field, Deondre Francois made an ill-advised throw from deep within his own territory. In just one year, Brown helped those numbers jump to 36 sacks and 88 tackles for loss.

"Sometimes, I love him, sometimes I want to choke him", Fisher said of his relationship with Murray. "Big players make big plays in big-time moments, and that was a big-time moment right there". This came from a competent mix of keeping Michigan's quarterback, Wilton Speight, on edge in the pocket with pressure and with solid run defense which held UM to 2.5 yards per carry as a team.

Siemian has played terribly of late and he was the QB when the Raiders dominated the Broncos in their meeting earlier this season. Their last meaningless game came on January 2, 2011, in a 33-28 loss to the San Diego Chargers.

Butt left the game early in the game with a knee injury, which is featured to be a torn ACL or MCL, head coach Jim Harbaugh said after the game. And Jake Butt, the Big Ten Tight End of the Year, was knocked out of the game with an injury in the second quarter. MI recovered and it turned into a field goal for the Wolverines. At least briefly, until Florida State star tailback Dalvin Cook ripped it away with a 71-yard run.
