TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- EJ Manuel threw for 252 yards and two touchdowns and backup quarterback Clint Trickett threw a touchdown pass on his first college play as No. 6 Florida State beat Louisiana-Monroe 34-0 Saturday in the season opener for both teams.
Florida State's swarming defense limited ULM to 191 yards and 12 first downs.
