Game 3 vs. UCLA

In a barrage of points and offense, Florida State defeated No. 7 BYU, 54-28, to snap the Cougars’ 18-game home win streak in front of 64,209 fans at LaVell Edwards Stadium. McKay Jacobson had a career day in front of the 13th-straight Edwards Stadium sellout crowd, using a career-long 80-yard touchdown catch to finish with 111 yards, the young sophomore’s single-game best. His score came on the first play of a new BYU possession late in the third quarter, resulting in a scoring drive of 12 seconds. Senior quarterback Max Hall finished the night 20-for-31 for 306 yards and two touchdowns, but was hindered by three interceptions. In his first substantial action back from a hamstring injury, junior Harvey Unga led the Cougar ground attack, rushing for 97 yards on 10 carries for 9.7 yards per carry, including his first touchdown of the season minutes into the second quarter. Unga took a handoff up the middle, then switched directions, sweeping around the left side of the line for the 12-yard score, cutting the Florida State lead to 13-7. After another Seminole score, Hall led the Cougar offense on an 8-play, 80-yard drive. He completed 5-of-6 passes for 54 yards to five different receivers, capping the scoring drive with a three-yard pass to Manase Tonga. Hall was replaced in the fourth quarter by Riley Nelson who had a 29-yard touchdown pass to JJ DiLuigi.
