Florida State blew another lead in the fourth quarter on Saturday night, falling on the road to No. 25 Virginia, as the Seminoles dropped to 1-2 on the season.
It was a bizarre game with a weird finish, as Florida State’s offense nearly tied the game on a long drive with time expiring.
The Seminoles ended up being rushed to get a play off with the final seconds ticking off the clock and got stopped short by the Cavaliers’ defense.
Florida State head coach Willie Taggart is facing some criticism for his postgame explanation.
“Well I didn’t call the plays, Kendal [Briles] called the plays. He had the play called and we just didn’t get it done,” Taggart said.

That just doesn’t come across very well, especially after a loss.
Florida State has been arguably the country’s most-disappointing team through three weeks. The Seminoles are 1-2 and could miss a bowl game for the second straight season.
The Seminoles are set to host Louisville at Doak Campbell Stadium next Saturday in a must-win game.
