The third largest crowd in Tiger history, 77,535, seemed to rattle the home team more than the Seminoles. It was a somewhat methodical FSU offense but an always tough defense that made the difference.
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 sellout crowd at Tiger Stadium, widely regarded as Death Valley, seemed to bother LSU more than Florida State in the first quarter. The Tigers were much calmer on their third possession and put together a decent drive that stalled at the FSU 42. The Tigers, though, picked up an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on the play and it was first and 25.
Butler gave the Seminoles good field position midway through the second period as he blocked Don Barthel's punt.
The blocked punt was the sixth of Butler's career at Florida State, who has started at cornerback the past three seasons.
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. The Seminoles got another break after the drive stalled and Capece missed a 35-yard field goal attempt. TALLAHASSEE, FL - "After the LSU game, I wanted to see if we could throw," said Florida State coach Bobby Bowden. 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. The first time the Seminoles had the ball they wasted no time in entertaining their fans, driving 55 yards in 10 plays.
Louisville fumbled the ensuing kickoff, giving FSU the ball at the Cardinals' 13, but the Seminoles were stopped on fourth down at the one.


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. 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.
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. The Mark Everett era began with a resounding win as the host Warriors jumped to a 28-0 lead at the half and cruised to a preseason win. Calvary Christian dismissed Dave Bonchi as football coach and hired former Dunedin coach Mark Everett to take over the program, school administrator David Kilgore said Tuesday. The monotony of banging pads against teammates ends this weekend for most private schools in Pinellas County. LARGO — Indian Rocks Christian graduates 15 players from its senior class, including nearly every skill player. The Sunshine Football Officials Association held eight-team controlled scrimmages at three Clearwater schools Saturday to provide training for officials. SEFFNER — Calvary Christian coach Dave Bonchi feels his team's final record isn't indicative of the success it should have had.


TAMPA — On a day that looked like it might be a characteristic barn burner, with junior tailback Robert Davis 276 yards from 2,000 yards, Class 2A, District 5 surprised again.
A lot of things have to fall in place and you must persevere but success is not an accident. With a third and 7 at the LSU 23, the sophomore quarterback hit split end Tracy Porter for 17 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. 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. 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. It was Stockstill, who completed only six of 11 passes for 35 yards, that caused the doubts in the Seminole opener. 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. On the second play, he hit Johnson from the 11 for a touchdown with 6:28 left in the third quarter. So every participating team got in extra spring work, running at least 24 plays on offense and 24 plays on defense. But the Tigers ran into problems after that with two delay of game calls and were forced to punt. There are six games tonight and one Saturday night involving eight of the nine private schools.
