This week, we asked our readers and followers to give their favorite moment from Florida State’s 2015 regular season.
From the Staff
Saturday’s 27-2 win over Florida in Gainesville was certainly an excellent way for the Seminoles to close the 2015 regular season, but my favorite moment from this season was sophomore running back Dalvin Cook putting away his hometown school for a second straight season.
As a freshman in 2014, Cook put FSU ahead for good in South Florida by scoring with under four minutes to play in a 30-26 victory over Miami. Cook’s winning score this season came from 23 yards out with 6:44 to play and wound up being the game-winner in a 29-24 victory over the Hurricanes.
Cook’s score was the third of the night and not only allowed FSU to earn its sixth straight win over Miami, but it brought a sense that the Seminoles could still do big things this season after struggling the week before at Wake Forest. 10 wins and a probable berth in a New Year’s Six bowl is an excellent achievement for a rebuilding year.

@Noled_Out I'm with everyone that said Cook's late TD against UF. Just a colossal F you to the most clownish fanbase in sports.
