It’s been a rough year for Florida and Florida State, and one play pretty much summed up the two typical powerhouse team’s seasons.
Florida State’s Matthew Thomas picked off Florida quarterback Feleipe Franks, and decided to showboat his way into the end zone. Instead, he lost his balance and fell at the one-yard line. To add insult to embarrassment, refs assessed a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and the ball was brought back to the 16-yard line.
Florida State was able to punch the ball in and take a 38-16 lead midway through the fourth quarter.
