The Savannah State-Florida State game has been delayed a second time because of inclement weather. The game was delayed with 8:59 left in the third quarter with the No. 6 Seminoles leading 55-0. After the game resumed after the first delay late in the second quarter, the game was played with a running clock and had a 10-minute halftime. Florida State officials said coaches from both schools and Atlantic Coast Conference officials gave their approval to play the remainder of the game with a running clock. Savannah State entered the game after an 84-0 loss to Oklahoma State. The Seminoles (1-0) were installed as 70 1/2-point favorites by Las Vegas odds makers. Savannah State is collecting paychecks totaling $860,000 for the two games, which will go a long way toward helping the athletic program meet its total budget of $5.1 million.
