Florida State has regained its perch atop the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The Florida State Seminoles will be without their top running back for the rest of the season. The school announced Monday that Chris Thompson will be out after injuring his left knee.
Up by 10 points, against a heavily favored rival, the biggest home crowd of the season squealing with delight.
EJ Manuel threw for one touchdown and ran for another as Florida State opened a 28-point halftime lead and coasted to a 38-7 victory over Boston College on Thursday night.
