Jacksonville State pulled off an incredible last-second play to upset Florida State on Saturday.

The Gamecocks were down three points with 6 seconds remaining in the game. Zerrick Cooper dropped back to pass and found wide receiver Damond Philyaw-Johnson who had barely gotten enough space to catch the ball over a Seminoles defensive back.

“I apologize to our fan base, to our university, to all Seminoles for the performance we had,” Norvell said, via ESPN. “I take ownership of it, but we go in and work, correct the things that have to be corrected to play to the level we’re capable of playing. This team has talent, they have heart, they truly do believe in what we can accomplish, but we have to go execute. It can’t just be something we talk about in the moment. I’ve been a part of challenging times before. Tonight is a challenging time for our university and our football team. We will get it corrected.”

Florida State beat Jacksonville State last year, 41-24.

The Seminoles are now 0-2 on the year. Jacksonville State is now 1-1.
