Well, this is what can happen when one teams scores 56 points in the first half…

Florida State did just that on Saturday, opening up a 56-6 lead at halftime over poor FCS Delaware State. The beatdown was bad enough that both teams agreed to play just 10-minute quarters in the second half in order to accelerate the result of the game.

Florida State won the game 77-6.

This isn’t new territory for Deleware State, unfortunately. The same exact thing happened to them last year, as Missouri had taken an incredible 58-0 lead by halftime of that game. That game ended with a 79-0 final score.

Delaware State falls to 2-9 on the season with the loss. Florida State improve to 4-6, and they need to win their final two games to extend their 36-year bowl streak.
