Florida State took its second drive 90 yards on 11 plays and grabbed a 7-3 lead on a 3-yard touchdown pass from Francois to Auden Tate at the 13:41 mark of the second quarter. On the FSU kick attempt, Minkah Fitzpatrick pushed through the Seminoles' line to block the attempt and keep the score locked at 10-7 heading into halftime. Late in the fourth quarter, Tide linebacker Ronnie Harrison sacked quarterback Deondre Francois from behind while he was rolling out.
Less than a minute later, the Tide took back the ball again when Levi Wallace picked off Francois' pass at the FSU 42-yard line.
