September 26, 1987
Florida State 23
Michigan State 19
I knew this game would be a serious test of the Florida State run defense.
Lorenzo White was awesome this season, and he was this game as well - breaking off the Seminoles for 160 yards (but it did take 35 carries to get there). Michigan State's quarterback McCallister had a tough day passing the ball, but gashed Florida State for 75 yards and nearly carried the Spartans to a win.
The Spartans ruled the time of possession and kept the Seminole defense on the field, again and again.
In the end it was the Florida State running game and Sammie Smith that did it with his 143 yards on 13 carries - and a long gainer that set up the final Seminole touchdown.

What This Is
A replay of the 1987 Florida State Football season. 1987 was the year I became a Seminole fan. My friend JP and I were at the FSU - Miami game this year. Much heartache, but JP and I were lifers after that.
