Click here for program cover

From the 1999 FSU Media Guide, Page 126

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - Travis Minor rushed for 146 yards and 26 year old sophomore quarterback Chris Weinke threw for 207 yards in his first start to lead Florida State to a 23-14 season opening win over Texas A&M at the Kickoff Classic in the Meadowlands.

Minor carried the ball a school record 34 times against the Aggies for a 4.3 yard average. Weinke completed 21 of his 36 pass attempts including a nine yard touchdown pass to Peter Warrick.

The Seminole defense was outstanding throughout the game limiting the Aggies to just 33 yards rushing and 133 yards of total offense.

FSU took advantage of an A&M fumble at their 39 in the first quarter with Minor finishing the short drive with a three yard TD plunge with 2:33 left in the quarter for the game's first score. A little under four minutes later Sebastian Janikowski's 33 yard field goal capped another short drive following an A&M fumble.

Texas A&M scored with 12:42 left in the first half on a six play, 58 yard drive to cut the Seminole lead to 10-7. The Aggies then took a 14-10 lead into the locker room at halftime after a 21 yard return of a Chris Weinke fumble with just :29 left in the second quarter.

The Seminoles answered with 10 points in the third quarter when Janikowski nailed a 28 yard field goal with 6:43 left and Weinke hit Peter Warrick from nine yards out with just five seconds left in the period.

RALEIGH, NC - Chris Weinke hit wide receiver Peter Warrick with a 74 yard touchdown bomb on FSU's first play from scrimmage, but it would be the only scoring for the Seminoles all day as Florida State lost to an ACC foe for only the second time ever with a 24-7 thumping by the Wolfpack.

Weinke suffered a school record six interceptions in the game and finished with just nine completions in 32 attempts for 243 yards. Travis Minor just missed a 100 yard effort on the ground for the Seminoles with 99 yards on 18 carries.

It was NC State who posted the big numbers with quarterback Jamie Barnette passing for 287 yards on 17 completions in 32 attempts. Torry Holt led the NCSU receivers with 135 yards on nine catches and one touchdown.

Down 7-0 with 1:41 left in the first quarter, NC State looked like they were in trouble with FSU on the five poised for a second TD, but an interception squashed the scoring opportunity and set the Wolfpack off on an impressive 10 play, 99 yard drive that left NCSU down one at 7-6. Two minutes later, Holt made the home crowd believers with a 68 yard punt return that gave them a 13-7 lead that held through halftime.

With NC State's defense taking advantage of FSU's miscues, the Wolfpack would keep the Seminoles off the scoreboard the entire second half while scoring 11 insurance points to polish off their dramatic upset win.

Florida State drove the ball inside NC State's 35 yard line three times in the fourth quarter before turnovers killed potential scoring drives.

The loss left FSU 47-2 against the ACC since joining the league in 1992.

From the 1999 FSU Media Guide, Page 128

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Chris Weinke threw for three touchdowns and the Florida State defense limited Duke to just 165 total yards as the Seminoles opened their 1998 home campaign with a 62-13 rout of the Blue Devils in front of 80,032 in Doak Campbell Stadium.

Weinke bounced back from a six interception day one week earlier to complete 11 of 19 passes for 241 yards without an interception. His scoring passes covered 30 and 24 yards to Peter Warrick and 17 yards to Travis Minor.

Duke jumped out to a 7-0 lead midway through the first quarter when Letavious Wilks scored on a one yard plunge. The touchdown was set up when FSU punter Keith Cottrell had a punt blocked inside his own 10 yard line.

Florida State took control of the game with a 24 point outburst in the second quarter. Sebastian Janikowski put the Tribe on the board with a 38 yard field goal, then Weinke and Warrick connected on a 30 yard score to give FSU a 10-7 lead.

After Duke's Sims Lenhardt booted a 51 yard field goal to tie the contest at 10, Laveranues Coles took the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown to give Florida State the lead for good. Minor's 17 yard TD reception from Weinke gave the Seminoles a 24-10 lead at intermission.

Florida State added 28 points in the third quarter to take a 52-10 lead after three periods. Minor scored on an eight yard run, Warrick caught a 24 yard TD pass from Weinke and William McCray and Jeff Chancy scored on runs from one and two yards out, respectively.

Lenhardt added a 43 yard field go early in the final period for Duke.

Janikowski hit a 40 yard field goal and Chaney added a six yard scamper to close out the scoring.

Chancy led FSU with 88 yards on the ground on 10 attempts while Minor ran for 76 yards on 14 carries. The Seminole defense held Duke to just 56 yards through the air on 5 of 18 passing with two interceptions.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Jeff Chaney came off the bench to rush for 89 yards and a touchdown and the Florida State defense limited Southern California to just 23 yards through the air as the Seminoles downed the Trojans 30-10 before 79,815 in Doak Campbell Stadium.

Chaney replaced starting tailback Travis Minor, who went down with an ankle injury in the first quarter. His 89 yards came on 19 carries and helped FSU use a ball control attack, which held the ball almost twice as long as USC.

The game was played despite the threat of Hurricane Georges, which sat idlely in the Gulf of Mexico. While the hurricane did not make landfall near Tallahassee, the Seminole defense was a force holding the Trojans to just 189 total yards and eight first downs. USC completed just one pass for five yards in the first three quarters and did not break out of single digits in passing yards until less than two minutes remained in the game.

Sebastian Janikowski got Florida State on the board first with a 37 yard field goal that capped a seven play, 65 yard drive in the first quarter. The Trojans countered with a 49 yard Adam Abrams field goal five minutes later and the score was tied 3-3 at the end of the first period.

FSU went into the half with a 13-3 advantage after scoring 10 points in the second quarter. A seven yard touchdown run by Chaney and a 36 yard Janikowksi field goal five seconds before the half gave the Tribe the margin.

The Seminoles stretched the lead to 20-3 on a Chris Weinke to Peter Warrick five yard scoring pass late in the third quarter. But USC closed to within 20-10 at the end of the period when Chad Morton scored from seven yards out.

Florida State put the game away in the fourth quarter with a 26 yard field goal by Janikowski and a 35? ard TD pass from Weinke to Ron Dugans.

Weinke finished with 226 yards passing while Warrick had six catches for 112 yards. The Seminole defense finished with four sacks and held touted Trojan receiver R. Jay Soward to one reception for five yards.

COLLEGE PARK, MD, October 3, 1998 - Sophomore Jeff Chaney, filling in for an injured Travis Minor at tailback, rushed for a career high 133 yards on 30 carries while Sebastian Janikowski tied an FSU record with five field goals as the Seminoles defeated Maryland 24-10 in College Park.

Quarterback Chris Weinke completed 16 of 32 passes for 261 yards and one touchdown to help open things up for Chaney in his first start. FSU's defense held the Terrapins to just 64 yards through the air and 197 yards total offense.

The Seminoles orchestrated a six play, 69 yard drive on their first series which used 2:30. The drive was capped by a 38 yard touchdown pass from Weinke to Laveranues Coles, who would finish the day with four catches for 74 yards and a touchdown.

Janikowski rounded out the scoring in the first half with three field goals. The sophomore connected from 27, 47 and 48 yards to give the Seminoles a 16-10 half time advantage. He also added a 21 yard field goal in the third quarter, before tying Bill Capece's record of five field goals in a single game with a 36 yarder with 11:01 left in the fourth quarter.

FSU's defense stifled Maryland's two quarterback attack, holding them scoreless in the second half and allowing just 65 yards over the last 30 minutes. The Terps rotated quarterbacks Randall Jones and Ken Mastrole, who combined to complete just 9 of 23 passes.

The Seminole defense added a safety in the third quarter on a Roland Seymour tackle of Jones, which gave the Seminoles an 18-10 advantage.

The victory improved the Seminoles to 9-0 all time against the University of Maryland.

MIAMI, FL - Junior wide receiver Peter Warrick caught seven passes for 190 yards and Chris Weinke completed 17 of 32 passes for 316 yards and two touchdowns in a convincing 26-14 victory over rival Miami at the Orange Bowl. Weinke's scoring tosses were the first touchdown passes by an FSU quarterback in the Orange Bowl against UM since Brad Johnson threw one in 1990.

The Seminole defense totaled seven sacks, including six of Hurricane starter Scott Covington, while holding Miami to a total of just 69 rushing yards.

The Seminoles opened the scoring with 6:27 left in the first quarter when Warrick out jumped a Miami defender for a spectacular catch and a 62 yard touchdown. The Hurricanes tied the game late in the first quarter on a nine yard pass on fourth down from Covington to tight end Daniel Franks.

FSU rebounded to take the lead before the half when Weinke found sophomore Marvin Minnis in the endzone from 23 yards out. It was Minnis' first touchdown of the season and gave the Seminoles a 14-7 halftime lead.

After a defensive stop to start the third quarter FSU drove the ball 37 yards on seven plays to setup a 27 yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski, giving the Seminoles a 17-7 advantage.

FSU scored another touchdown in the third quarter on a William McCray three yard plunge. The defense added a safety on a Roland Seymour sack of Kelly for a 26-14 victory.

The Seminole's offense racked up 411 yards of total offense, while Weinke recorded his first career 300 yard passing game. Running back Jeff Chaney subbed for an injured Travis Minor and finished with 71 yards on 22 carries. The win was FSU's fourth straight over the Hurricanes.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State put together their most impressive team performance with a 48-0 home shutout of Clemson, outgaining the Tigers 455 to 129 in total yardage and recording 28 first downs to the Tigers' five.

FSU's first score came off a Clemson special teams miscue. After the Tiger defense forced a three and out on the first series of the game, Travis Zachery fumbled the punt and Mario Edwards pounced on it at the Clemson 40. On the very next play, with 13:56 showing on the first quarter clock, quarterback Chris Weinke found Laveranues Coles on a 40 yard touchdown strike.

Weinke hit on another long scoring pass, this time a 48 yarder to Peter Warrick, to give the Tribe a 14-0 lead with 12:13 remaining in the second quarter. With the defense holding the Clemson offense in check, Weinke found another of his talented wide receivers for a touchdown as Ron Dugans grabbed a 12 yarder with 5:35 left in the half. Sebastian Janikowski boomed a season long 53 yard field goal at the 1:45 mark to give Florida State a 24-0 halftime lead.

Tailback Jeff Chaney broke free for a 41 yard touchdown run with 11:40 left in the third quarter as the Tribe opened up a 31-0 margin.

Clemson had their best chance to get on the scoreboard when Antonio Dingle forced and recovered a Weinke fumble at the Seminole 11. The FSU defense preserved the shutout as Brandon Streeter's pass fell incomplete on fourth and six at the seven.

It was 41-0 at the end of the quarter after a 42 yard Janikowski field goal and Weinke's fourth touchdown pass, a 15 yard strike to a wide open Marvin Minnis. Backup quarterback Marcus Outzen provided the final score on a two yard touchdown run.

Weinke finished the day with his second career 300 yard game, going 18 of 35 for 302 yards and four touchdowns. With the 48-0 final, Clemson has been held without a touchdown in their last four visits to Doak Campbell Stadium.

ATLANTA, GA - Peter Warrick scored three touchdowns and FSU's defense dominated after Georgia Tech's first drive as Florida State won a pivotal ACC game 34-7 in Atlanta. The win, which came before a national ESPN television audience, gave FSU a share of the conference lead and the inside track on the ACC championship.

Georgia Tech was impressive on their first possession, mounting an 18 play, 80 yard scoring drive that ate up more than nine minutes on the clock. Phillip Rogers dove over the top for the touchdown from two yards out to give the fired up Yellow Jackets a 7-0 lead at 5:33.

The FSU offense answered with a 12 play, 82 yard drive. Chris Weinke hit Warrick on a 44 yard touchdown pass to even the score at 7-7. Remarkably, each team had the ball only once in the first quarter.

FSU's offense was held scoreless over the second quarter with penalties and sacks stopping Seminole drives. However, FSU's defense was gaining strength after clamping down on Joe Hamilton and the Yellow Jacket offense. In fact, after its initial drive, Tech could manage just 119 yards over the final three quarters.

Sebastian Janikowski gave the Tribe a slim 10-7 lead on a 43 yard field goal with 10:10 left in the third quarter, which held until a fourth quarter explosion by FSU.

With 13:41 left, Weinke found Warrick in the endzone from eight yards out to push the score to 17-7. After a Janikowski field goal at the 8:49 mark, Warrick found the endzone for the third time. The junior wide receiver took a reverse around left end, put a move on a Yellow Jacket defender that left him on the ground, and carried it in for the touchdown. The TD put the Seminoles up 27-7 with 5:31 remaining.

Laveranues Coles got some work at tailback and responded with a two play 78 yard drive of his own with the touchdown coming on a 60 yard jaunt.

Warrick was named player of the game with three touchdowns on six catches for 82 yards and three runs for 21 yards. The FSU defense limited the ACC's leading passer (Hamilton) to eight of 14 throwing and only 56 yards.

From the 1999 FSU Media Guide, Page 134

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Quarterback Chris Weinke passed for a career high 338 yards and two touchdowns as he led the Seminoles to a 39-13 victory over North Carolina in Doak Campbell Stadium.

Travis Minor made his first start since the USC game due to an ankle injury and rushed for 76 yards on 24 carries and two touchdowns. Weinke completed 15 of 27 pass attempts without an interception and increased his FSU record of consecutive pass attempts without an interception to 202.

Kicker Sebastian Janikowski was perfect on four field goal attempts, including a pair of 42 yarders. Janikowski booted 42 and 28 yard field goals in the first quarter to put the Seminoles ahead 6-0 and Minor scored his first TD from the one yard line in the second quarter to give FSU a 13-0 advantage.

North Carolina kicker Josh McGee and Janikowski then traded field goals and the Seminoles headed into halftime with a 16-3 lead.

Minor scampered down the sideline for a 16 yard touchdown just minutes into the third quarter as FSU increased its lead to 23-3. The Tar Heels battled back with a 22 yard field goal by McGee and a seven yard TD catch by Kory Baily from Ronald Curry to cut the Seminoles lead to 10.

Peter Warrick and Laveranues Coles ripped the UNC defense in the fourth quarter with 56 yard and 49 yard TD catches, respectively. The two would combine for 245 yards and eight catches. Janikowski's second 42 yard field was FSU's final score, sealing the 39-13 win.

Linebacker Tommy Polley led the Seminoles with 10 tackles, including two for loss, while defensive tackle Corey Simon contributed 1.5 sacks and a tackle for loss to the FSU defensive effort.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State was forced to use second team quarterback Marcus Outzen the entire second half and the youngster pulled off a stunning 45-14 win over Virginia in Doak Campbell. Starting quarterback Chris Weinke left the game late in the second quarter after a jarring sack herniated a disc which knocked him out for the season. FSU's lead was only 21-14 at the half, but the defense held Virginia scoreless and the `Noles outscored the Cavs 24-0 in the second half.

On FSU's second possession of the game Weinke hit Peter Warrick with a 79 yard scoring bomb that gave the Seminoles a 7-0 lead. Just a minute later, the Cavaliers tied the score on an Anthony Southern two yard touchdown run. FSU bounced right back driving 80 yards on its next possession that resulted in Lamarr Glenn's two yard TD plunge and a 14-7 lead.

On the next series, free safety Dexter Jackson intercepted an Aaron Brooks' pass to set up a one yard quarterback sneak by Weinke early in the second quarter, giving FSU a 21-7 advantage. The Cavaliers battled back to within a touchdown as Thomas Jones caught an eight yard pass from Brooks with 6:47 left in the half.

Florida State shutout the Cavaliers in the second half, holding Virginia to just 64 yards total offense after the break.

The Seminoles ran for three more touchdowns under Outzen's leadership. Minor dove for a one yard score as he rushed for his fifth career 100 yard game. Jeff Chaney and Raymont Skaggs each added a touchdown to the Seminoles' campaign in the fourth quarter, while kicker Sebastian Janikowskt booted a 22 yard field goal. Outzen finished the game 5 of 6 passing for 67 yards with one interception.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Marcus Outzen stepped in as FSU's starting quarterback for the first time on a cold, rainy night at Wake Forest and led the Seminoles to a hard fought 24-7 win over a determined Demon Deacon team that clinched a share of a seventh straight ACC title for the Seminoles.

Outzen completed 11 of 19 passes, including nine of his last 10, for 164 yards to lead FSU to the win. Travis Minor gained 102 yards on 19 carries, but the offense could generate just 347 yards of total offense.

FSU's defense maintained their dominating form holding Wake Forest to just 179 yards of total offense, which included a minus 30 yards rushing on the night. Cornerback Mario Edwards set an FSU record and tied an ACC mark with four interceptions in the game.

Outzen opened the scoring in the second quarter diving over from the one yard line which capped a five play, 59 yard drive with 8:36 left in the first half. Sebastian Janikowski gave the Tribe a 10-0 lead at the half with a 32 yard field goal with 1:32 left in the first half.

Wake's only touchdown came on a 56 yard bomb when two Seminole defenders collided in the third quarter.

Minor capped a 10 play, 71 yard drive with a touchdown plunge from the one with 4:22 left in the third quarter, and ran in from 22 yards out in the fourth quarter to complete the scoring.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Wide receiver Peter Warrick caught one touchdown pass and threw for another, and Florida State's defense did not allow Florida to convert a single third down all game as the fifth ranked Seminoles defeated the fourth ranked Gators 23-12 in Tallahassee. The victory extended FSU's home unbeaten streak to 40 games and kept UF coach Steve Spurrier winless at FSU for his coaching career.

Marcus Outzen, who was starting just his second game at quarterback, completed 13 of 22 passes for 167 yards, including the 32 yarder to Warrick that gave FSU a lead they would never give up at 13-12 with 3:29 left in the third quarter. Travis Minor led a potent FSU ground game with 127 yards on 30 carries.

Florida's only points came in the first half on a 50 yard TD bomb, a safety and a 22 yard field goal following the safety.

FSU's defense held UF scoreless in the second half and allowed the Gators just 204 yards of total offense, the lowest output for the Gators in eight years. Quarterback Doug Johnson was just 13 of 36 and threw three interceptions.

Sebastian Janikowski drilled two field goals in the first half to offset Florida's 12 points, giving the Seminoles hope although they trailed 12-6 at halftime.

FSU's first lead came on their first possession of the second half when Outzen's pass deflected off a Florida defender and into the hands of Warrick, who snaked the remaining 32 yards into the endzone.

The Seminoles grabbed momentum for good early in the fourth quarter. Travis Minor's 46 yard touchdown run was called back for holding, but on the next play Warrick took a reverse and threw a 46 yard touchdown strike to Ron Dugans to give the Seminoles a 20-12 lead with 13:30 left to play.

Janikowksi sealed the win with a 41 yard field goal with 4:31 remaining. The win gave the Seminoles an 11-1 regular season record.

TEMPE, AZ - Tennessee had one more big play in them than Florida State and the Seminoles could not convert on two comeback opportunities in the last four minutes as the Volunteers defeated FSU 23-16 to win the 1998 national championship.

Both teams were sloppy at times in a game that saw the teams flagged for a combined 21 penalties, but FSU had its chances at the end.

Tennessee quarterback Tee Martin hit wide receiver Peerless Price with a majestic 79 yard bomb that put the Volunteers ahead 20-9 with just over nine minutes remaining in the game.

With 3:42 left, FSU quarterback Marcus Outzen, who was making just his third career start for an injured Chris Weinke, scored from seven yards out to cut the UT lead to 23-16. On the ensuing kickoff, the Seminoles recovered an onside kick and appeared to have set up their offense in great shape for a short drive. To the dismay of FSU fans, officials ruled the ball touched an FSU player within the 10 yard zone and Tennessee was awarded possession. Tennessee then drove to the FSU 10 but fumbled to give the Seminole faithful one more hope of a comeback. However, a UT interception on the next play sealed the Volunteers' win.

Tennessee's Martin was 11 of 18 for 278 yards and two TD's, but the 16 points generated by the Vols offense would have only tied the Tribe. The difference came on a defensive play in the second quarter when UT cornerback Dwayne Goodrich stepped in front of an Outzen pass and raced 54 yards for a touchdown. The interception return came just 25 seconds after the Vols first touchdown of the night and gave them a 14-0 lead which they never relinquished.

Outzen completed 9 of 22 passes for 145 yards, but suffered two interceptions. His favorite target was Ron Dugans, who finished with 135 yards on six catches. Dugans benefited from Tennessee's double coverage of FSU All-America wide out Peter Warrick, who had just one catch for seven yards.

FSU closed the gap to 14-9 at halftime after William McCray scored from three yards out on a short drive set up by Derrick Gibson's interception and 43 yard return. Sebastian Janikowski drew the `Noles to within five with a 34 yard field goal with 1:17 left in the half.

FSU's final score came on a five play, 29 yard drive that culminated with Outzen' s run at the 3:42 mark of the fourth quarter.
