The Florida State Seminoles have done a lot of winning over the last few seasons—just not quite as much as an ESPN app would lead you to believe on Tuesday afternoon. The manager of Florida State football's official Twitter account caught a typo from an ESPN app, which had 3-0 FSU listed at "131-0." The account tweeted a photo, jokingly thanking ESPN for the respect.

Of course, this lead to some snarky tweets about ESPN's FPI ratings, which has the undefeated Seminoles down at 17.

">@espn "FSU is 131-0, but because of bad game control, FPI still has them in 27th"

">@espn but did we get good ratings on the game control metric?
