Florida State spring game final stats

Michael DiRocco ESPN Staff Writer 

Best throw of the day so far by QB James Blackman, dropping the ball over the shoulder of WR Deonte Sheffield for a 65-yard touchdown. Blackman now up to 202 yards passing here in the third quarter of the Florida State spring game. Running clock in the second half.

RB Khalan Labron was a huge bright spot for the Seminoles in the first half, rushing for 137 yards and two touchdowns on 11 carries (12.5 yards per carry). That included a 91-yard TD run. Labron was a five-star recruit out of Virginia Beach, Virginia, who redshirted last season. Sophomore Cam Akers and senior Jacques Patrick combined for 1,772 yards and 14 TDs rushing last season but this impressive showing by Labron helps his chances of getting heavily into the rotation in the fall.

The Garnet team leads the Gold team 21-7 at the half of the Florida State spring game. The offenses bogged down in the second quarter. After combining for 256 yards in the first quarter the teams managed just 122 in the second. Things started to get sloppy, too, with a delay of game penalty as well as pass interference in the end zone.

Florida State has generated 256 yards of offense and three touchdowns in the first quarter of the spring game. There was a 91-yard touchdown run by Khalan Laborn, a double pass for a TD, and a pair of fourth-down conversions. One problem, though: Take away the 91-yard TD run and the Seminoles have run for minus-16 yards.

Florida State scores TD on trick play (0:33)

One change that's immediately noticeable about the Seminoles under new coach Willie Taggart is the quicker pace. The offense is snapping the ball with roughly 20 seconds remaining on the play clock. That's a huge difference from the offense under former coach Jimbo Fisher, when the Seminoles often drained the play clock before snapping the ball. Going to be an adjustment for the offensive lineman in particular going forward.

Nice little trick play by the Gold team: QB James Blackmon to WR Keith Gavin, who throws a 27-yard TD pass to Jacques Patrick, a DB lined up at wide receiver. Florida State spring game is tied 7-7.

Former FSU coach Bobby Bowden gets a standing ovation as he makes his way onto Bobby Bowden Field at Doak Campbell Stadium. Bowden has a few words in the end zone with some of the roughly 300 former players in town this weekend for the spring game.

FSU WR Murray (meniscus) likely out for spring

Florida State leading receiver Nyqwan Murray is likely to miss the rest of spring practice after he suffered a slight meniscus tear, according to coach Willie Taggart.

Florida State guard Terance Mann is having himself a helluva second half, with all of his points coming at the rim.

Yesterday, Gonzaga coach Mark Few said Florida State was "probably easily the most physically imposing and athletically gifted team we've faced" since he's been coach. While that was likely an exaggeration, the Noles have looked the part in controlling this first half.
