The Florida State Seminoles already had to feel confident with a 20-7 lead over the Miami Hurricanes. Then after a defensive stop, DJ Matthews provide everyone with more reason to celebrate after a 74-yard punt return touchdown.

Early in the third quarter, Matthews took the punt after a few bounces with Miami defenders all around him. The explosive sophomore found a hole then squirted through and burst down the sideline untouched for the score.

Matthews’ touchdown expanded Florida State’s lead to 27-7 over No. 17-ranked Miami. The pending upset has to feel even better for Seminoles fans because it’s happening on Miami’s turf.
