Florida State completed a perfect home slate on Saturday with a convincing 52-13 victory over FCS power Chattanooga on Senior Day. With the win, the FSU senior class equaled a school-record for wins over a 4-year span with 48. The Seminole seniors could break that record next week with a win over rival Florida, but looking back on Saturday’s win over the Mocs, the Noled Out staff hands out game balls.
Unanimous Game Ball: Dalvin Cook, RB
Florida State sophomore running back Dalvin Cook’s All-American caliber season continued on Saturday as Cook rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries. Cook also had a reception for five yards. Cook eclipsed Warrick Dunn’s single-season FSU rushing record last week and on Saturday, Cook broke Greg Allen’s FSU record for all-purpose yards set in 1982. Cook has 1,682 total yards this season and 17 total touchdowns.
Unanimous Game Ball: Derwin James, S
Freshman safety Derwin James continues to be all over the field for Florida State. On Saturday, James recorded a game-high 10 total tackles, including seven solo stops and a tackle for loss. James is FSU’s second leading tackler on the year.
Mike Ferguson and Clint Eiland’s Game Ball: Cason Beatty, P
Florida State punter Cason Beatty punted just once in his final game at Doak Campbell Stadium, but that one punt was a booming 52-yard punt that pinned Chattanooga inside the 10-yard-line.
Jon Marchant’s Game Ball: Roberto Aguayo, K
FSU junior kicker Roberto Aguayo attempted just one field goal on Saturday, but made good on his 18-yard attempt. Aguayo was also a perfect 7-for-7 on PATs and had six of his nine kickoffs go for touchbacks.
