TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Redshirt freshman B.J. Daniels ran for
126 yards and threw two touchdown passes in his first collegiate
start Saturday to lead undefeated South Florida to a 17-7 win at
No. 18 Florida State in the first meeting between the schools.
Daniels was filling in for senior Matt Grothe, out for the season with a knee injury.
It was the first time since Nebraska's Steve Taylor ran for 139
yards against the Seminoles in 1986 that an opposing quarterback
rushed for over 100 yards against them.
Florida State (2-2) lost four fumbles, including a critical one by quarterback Christian Ponder that allowed USF to ice the game.
Daniels, a Tallahassee kid not heavily recruited by Florida State, totaled 341 yards of offense.
