The Florida State-Savannah State game has been called with 8:59 left in the 3rd due to weather. Final: FSU 55, Savannah State 0.— Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) September 9, 2012
There aren't a lot of people likely to be complaining this game did not reach its end. Florida State's dominance was so apparent, it had pulled the starters before the first quarter had ended!
While that seems a bit early to be pulling the starters, FSU had a 35-0 lead by the end of the first quarter.
While this lopsided score is eye-popping, it is not all that surprising. Savannah State does not have anywhere near the athletes to compete with Florida State. They are coming off of back-to-back one-loss seasons.
The first of those came when they were playing as an FCS independent. Last season, they made the jump to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference.
They were a whopping 70.5-point underdog for this game.
While the FSU players didn't get a lot of time to run up their stats, there were still some solid numbers flying up on the tally boards.
Quarterback EJ Manuel was 10-for-13 for 161 yards and three touchdowns before leaving this game.
Sophomore running back Devonta Freeman put his explosiveness on full display by running on seven carries for 69 yards and a touchdown.
Senior wide receiver Rodney Smith had three receptions for 77 yards, and freshman receiver Kelvin Benjamin had three receptions, two of which were touchdowns.
So with that FSU dominance, this insanely lopsided matchup came to an early and abrupt end, which is probably best for all involved.
