What Jimbo Fisher said after Florida State’s blowout win over Delaware State

Florida State wasn’t expected to have much trouble with FCS Delaware State in the Seminoles’ home finale. After a lshaky start, the Seminoles took control in a 77-6 rout of the Hornets at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla.

The Seminoles took a 7-0 lead and used a touchdown on a blocked field goal to double that margin with 9 minutes, 8 seconds remaining in the first quarter. The Hornets did get on the board with a touchdown of their own (followed by a missed extra point), but it smooth sailing for the Seminoles from there as they opened up a 56-6 halftime lead. The two teams would agree to shorten the second half to a pair of 10-minute quarters with the outcome already decided.

It was a short but productive day for quarterback James Blackman as he was lifted for backup J.J. Cosentino just before the halftime break. The freshman went 11 of 15 for 179 yards and 3 touchdowns during an historic opening 30 minutes for Florida State, during which it tied the school record for points in a half with 56. It finished with the program’s second-largest point total and second-biggest margin of victory.
