Jyruss Edwards and Kolton Browning made sure Louisiana-Monroe spoiled Howard Schnellenberger’s coaching finale.
The 2011 Florida State Seminoles debut was solid, a 34-0 victory over Louisiana-Monroe. Thanks to a loss by number three Oregon, the Seminoles will move to number 5 in the rankings by Tuesday.
