FSU-WMU post-game notebook

A look at some of the stories from the Seminoles' 28-20 win over the Broncos.

A day of firsts:
Sophomore tailback Antone Smth and freshman fullback Seddrick Holloway made the first starts of their respective careers against Western Michigan.

Redshirt senior Chris Davis recorded the first rushing score of his career when he took a reverse handoff eight yards for six FSU points.

Going long:

Quarterback Xavier Lee's 26-yard scoring pass to Greg Carr was the tribe's 17th play of the season for 25 yards or more.

Uncommon occurrence for Booker:

Tailback Lorenzo Booker's third quarter fumble was his first lost fumble in 303 consecutive carries. He had played in 26-straight game without losing a fumble.

Timmons does it again:

Linebacker Lawrence Timmons notched his first career interception against the Broncos and in doing so also scored for the Seminoles on a 22-yard return. Against Duke, Timmons returned a fumble 36 yards for his first career score.

More on Timmons:

With his one tackle for loss Saturday, Timmons now has 18.0 tackles for loss on the season, which ranks tied for 4th former defensive tackle Travis Johnson on FSU's all-time list for TFLs in a season. Only Alonzo Jackson (18.5 in 2002), Darnell Dockett (22 in 2001) and Brodrick Bunkley (25 in 2005) are head of the South Carolina native. Timmons now has 22.5tackles for loss in his career, which ranks 15th all-time.

Carr continues to make his mark:

With his two scoring catches against Western Michigan, Carr now has 19 touchdown receptions in two seasons. Only Peter Warrick (20), Andre Cooper (20), Barry Smith (20) and Ron Sellers (20) have more in a two-year span.

Homecoming success:

With Saturday's 28-20 victory, FSU Coach Bobby Bowden is now 30-1 in Homecoming games all-time at FSU. Playing the Broncos was the first time since joining the ACC in 1992 that FSU did not play a conference opponent on Homecoming.
