Warrick fumbled away the ball on a punt return after Miami’s ensuing possession, leaving the Hurricanes with the ball at the Florida State 18. Scott Covington hit tight end Daniel Franks on 4th-and-1 to tie the score, 7-7, just 2:33 later.

Weinke then connected with Marvin Minnis on a 23-yard scoring pass three minutes before halftime as Florida State took a 14-7 lead into the locker room.Down 24-7 Kenny Kelly replaced Scott Covington to shake things up in the third quarter, but it had little effect as Miami had trouble moving the ball.
