WATCH: Florida State avoids 0-3 start with last-minute TD

  James Blackman threw the game-winning touchdown pass for Florida State.

Florida State was in danger of falling to 0-3 this season – a dubious mark the Seminoles have avoided since 1976. But a 40-yard touchdown pass from true freshman quarterback James Blackman to Auden Tate with 1:01 remaining broke the 19-19 tie.

The Seminoles held on for a 26-19 win as Wake Forest's Hail Mary attempt as time expired was broken up by Florida State safety Derwin James.
