True freshmen make their marks
Monday, 10 true freshmen saw action for the Seminoles. That list of players included:
Brandon Warren (started)
A total of 12 true freshmen played in all of the 2005 season for FSU.
Buster starting final season off with a bang
Redshirt senior linebacker Buster Davis managed two sacks all of last year and three all of his career but Monday night he was in the Miami backfield frequently.
In addition to posting a game-high 10.5 tackles, the Daytona Beach native achieved two sacks on Hurricanes signal caller Kyle Wright.
Winning in Miami isn't very common
The Tribe's victory Monday evening was just the third of its kind since 1984. The past two victories came in 1998 and 1996 when the Seminoles left South Florida with Ws by scores of 24-16 and 34-16, respectively. Overall, FSU is 15-16 in games played in Miami.
FSU-Miami is almost always a close call
Monday's contest marks the 17 th time in the FSU-Miami rivalry that the game has been decided by a field goal or less. FSU is now 5-12 in those games. The last time that FSU won back-to back victories over Miami was in 1998 and 1999 when Chris Weinke guided the Seminoles. Drew Weatherford is now 2-0 against the Hurricanes.
Cismesia's play a sign for the 'Noles?
Junior kicker Gary Cismesia was 2-for-2 on his field goal attempts Monday evening and was responsible for the points needed for the close victory. The last time that a Seminole kicker did not miss a kick against the Hurricanes came in 1999 when Sebastian Janikowski hit a 39-yarder. FSU won the national championship that season.
