TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Greg Reid scored on an 83-yard punt return and Dustin Hopkins kicked three field goals Saturday to lead Florida State to a 23-19 win over longtime nemesis Miami.
Florida State (7-3, 5 -2 Atlantic Coast Conference) led 17-7 at the half and held Miami to its lowest scoring total of the season. The Hurricanes had scored at least 21 points in each of their previous nine games.
Miami (5-5, 3-4 ACC) couldn't overcome three early turnovers, but made it interesting late in the game with a pair of 80-yard scoring drives culminated by 1-yard runs by Mike James.
The Hurricanes led just once in the game at 7-3 in the second quarter before Florida State built its lead to 23-7 early in the fourth quarter on Hopkins' third field goal.
