Florida State Pins Shutout on LSU

BATON ROUGE, LA - Everyone connected with Louisiana State football likes to refer to Tiger Stadium as "Death Valley." But as far as Florida State's Seminoles are concerned the Bengals' home might as well be called "Pleasant Valley" after last night's 16-0 win over LSU in the 1980 season opener for both teams.

The third largest crowd in Tiger history, 77,535, seemed to rattle the home team more than the Seminoles. Florida State took advantage of three fumbles and one interception to score all its points, run its regular-season winning streak to 16 games and ruin Jerry Stovall's debut as the Tiger head coach.

It was a somewhat methodical FSU offense but an always tough defense that made the difference.

"I thought if we could just put some points on the board, we could hold 'em," Florida State head coach Bobby Bowden said. "I was not happy, particularly with the offense, but the kicking game and the defense won it for us."

The Seminoles, ranked 13th, banged out 187 yards on the ground to just 35 in the air. It was the first start for quarterback Rick Stockstill and, for Sam Platt, the game's leading ground gainer with 79 yards, it was his first appearance as a tailback.

"I thought everything just worked fine," said Stockstill, who completed six of 11 passes with no interceptions. "We did what we had to do and didn't make any mistakes.

"I was a little nervous before the first snap, but after that everything was great. The crowd? They didn't bother us at all. We never thought about them."

The Florida State defense, ranked 10th in the nation in 1979, held the Tiger veer offense to 95 yards rushing despite the fact that All-America nose guard Ron Simmons sat out the final three periods with a badly sprained right ankle.

"I thought in the first half they fooled us with some plays, opening up some pockets," Bowden said, referring to the fact that LSU gained 144 yards passing.

"But we adjusted in the second half. We were afraid they would score on us and run away with the game, but turnovers hurt them.

"I thought our offense kept us from losing the game by not fumbling the football."

For Stovall, his dream of coaching the Tigers got off to a poor start and he blamed his offense, and its turnovers, for the defeat.

"The defense was great," said the former LSU star. "Offensively we absolutely gave the game away.

"Offensively, we were sorry. We didn't block anyone, fumbled the ball and made crucial errors."

The sellout crowd at Tiger Stadium, widely regarded as Death Valley, seemed to bother LSU more than Florida State in the first quarter. The Tigers fumbled on their first two possessions and the Seminoles turned the miscues into a pair of 34-yard field goals by Bill Capece.

The Tigers were much calmer on their third possession and put together a decent drive that stalled at the FSU 42. Starting from its 20, LSU picked up a pair of first downs as Risher found a couple of holes in the FSU secondary. With a third and 7 at the LSU 23, the sophomore quarterback hit split end Tracy Porter for 17 yards.

The Tigers, though, picked up an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the play and it was first and 25. But Risher went right back to Porter as the senior from Baton Rouge got between Monk Bonasorte and James Harris for 21 yards. Jude Hernandez got the first down with a 6-yard gain. But the Tigers ran into problems after that with two delay of game calls and were forced to punt.

Butler gave the Seminoles good field position midway through the second period as he blocked Don Barthel's punt. The ball managed to travel 17 yards but FSU had a first down at the LSU 39. They could do nothing with the opportunity, though, as Stockstill was called for intentional grounding on second down and was off the mark on third down.

The blocked punt was the sixth of Butler's career at Florida State, who has started at cornerback the past three seasons.

Although Florida State had the lead at halftime, the Tigers dominated the statistics. LSU outgained FSU 145-87 yards in total offense. The yardage on the ground was the same - 67 yards - but the Tigers picked up 78 yards passing to just 20 for the Seminoles.

Stockstill hit four of seven passes while Risher was five of nine.

The Seminoles started the second half going backward. On first down at the Florida State 19, Platt was stopped for no gain. Stockstill went to the air on second down and his pass to Platt netted just 2 yards. On third down, Stockstill was dropped for a 9-yard loss and it appeared the Tigers would have good field position after an FSU punt.

It didn't work out that way, though, as LSU's Chris Williams fumbled Rohn Stark's punt and Seminole Brian Williams pounced on it at the FSU 48.

Florida State's offense again stalled after picking up just one first down and Capece made it 9-0 with a 45-yard field goal.

The Tigers continued to be plagued by turnovers as Monk Bonasorte intercepted a Risher pass at the Seminole 15 and returned it 28 yards to kill the next Tiger drive and set up FSU's first touchdown of the season.

The Seminoles got consecutive first downs after the Bonasorte interception as Stockstill hit Phil Williams for 15 yards and Platt ripped off a 13-yard run to give Florida State a first down at the LSU 31.

The Seminoles got another break after the drive stalled and Capece missed a 35-yard field goal attempt. But there was a reason for that as LSU was called for roughing the kicker and the Seminoles were given a first down. Five plays later Platt scored from 3 yards out and Capece's extra point gave Florida State a 16-0 lead with 2:32 left in the third period.

Simmons, the 6-foot-1, 232 lb. defensive stand-out, forced the opening-play fumble with a jarring tackle on Gajan, but had to leave the game early in the second quarter with an injured right anklsher

FSU passes by Louisville 52-0

TALLAHASSEE, FL - "After the LSU game, I wanted to see if we could throw," said Florida State coach Bobby Bowden. "I wanted to put our passing game to the test."

Some test.

Starting quarterback Rick Stockstill threw four touchdown passes and backups Kelly Lowrey and Blair Williams each threw one last night in FSU's 52-0 victory over Louisville before a record crowd of 52,623 at Doak Campbell Stadium.

Stockstill's scoring passes were eight yards to Dennis McKinnon, seven yards to Zeke Mowatt, 26 yards to Hardis Johnson and 19 yards to Phil Williams. Lowrey threw 11 yards to Johnson and Williams threw 47 yards to McKinnon.

The six scoring passes were a Florida State record. The Seminoles' other points came on a 50-yard return of an interception by Ron Hester and Bill Capece's 31-yard field goal and seven extra points.

While the offense was tuning up the passing game, the FSU defense, without injured All-America nose guard Ron Simmons, got its second sraight shutout, allowing Louisville only five first downs and 56 total yards. Florida State recorded 442 total yards and had the ball for 84 plays as compared to 49 for the Cardinals, losers in their opener to Miami, 24-10, a week ago.

"We played about as well as we could," said Bowden. "We mixed our offense a little better, and our defense was superior again."

The defense established its excellence a week ago at LSU. It was Stockstill, who completed only six of 11 passes for 35 yards, that caused the doubts in the Seminole opener.

Last night, however, was a different story.

The first time the Seminoles had the ball they wasted no time in entertaining their fans, driving 55 yards in 10 plays. Sam Platt, who carried 10 times for 107 yards in the game, was the big man in the drive. He covered 41 yards in five carries, but Stockstill got the touchdown, throwing the final eight yards to McKinnon with 9:36 remaining in the quarter.

"I know I only had 107 yards," said Platt, who was a wide receiver last year, "but I only played a half. Before it's over, I'll show them the real Sam Platt."

Louisville fumbled the ensuing kickoff, giving FSU the ball at the Cardinals' 13, but the Seminoles were stopped on fourth down at the one.

"That really bothered me," said Bowden, "that we couldn't get in at that point. If we didn't do anything right, it was then."

An interception by James Harris gave the Seminoles another chance, but Stockstill returned the ball when he was intercepted trying to hit McKinnon for the touchdown.

After an exchange of punts, Stockstill moved his team for touchdowns on three of the next four possessions and also got the field goal.

He finished the night completing nine of 12 passes for 115 yards before leaving the game midway through the third quarter.

"I never lost confidence in my ability to throw the ball," said Stockstill. "Last week was a game where passing was not the way to go. I'm as happy tonight as I was a week ago.

"It's also easy to throw the ball [after practicing] with our defense. It has to be one of the best defenses in the country."

The Seminole defenders never gave Louisville a chance.

"That's the way we would like to have it the entire year," said linebacker Reggie Herring, "but we know it won't be that way. What we have to do is stay mentally tough and not let anybody slip up on us.

"I think we have a chance to have a big year. We play as a team. We want all the players to know they are important, whether they're on the first team or fourth. We don't like to give up anything."

With the defense keeping the Cardinals pinned down, Stockstill's job was easy.

His second touchdown pass to Mowatt, a sophomore tight end, concluded a 45-yard scoring drive in seven plays with 10:42 remaining in the first half.

Keith Jones' partial block of a Louisville punt gave Stockstill possession at the Cardinal 28, and on the second play he threw 26 yards to Johnson with 8:11 to go in the second quarter.

FSU started at its 20 the next time and went 65 yards in 12 plays with Capece kicking a 31-yard field goal with two seconds remaining in the half.

"We felt good then," said McKinnon, "but we wanted to get a good start in the second half."

And they did, driving 86 yards in 12 plays with Stockstill throwing the final 19 yards to Williams with 8:32 left in the quarter.

Lowrey replaced Stockstill after Gary Henry recovered a Louisville fumble at the Cardinal 10. On the second play, he hit Johnson from the 11 for a touchdown with 6:28 left in the third quarter.
