Dalvin Cook Fumbles Twice in the 3rd Quarter, and Oregon Leads FSU 39-20

By Jason McIntyre

Dalvin Cook, the fantastic Florida State freshman running back, had a terrific first half, rushing for 90 yards on just 12 carries.

Then, the 19-year old freshman fumbled twice in the 3rd quarter and Florida State’s 2-year unbeaten run is in serious trouble.

Cook was stripped on FSU’s first drive of the 2nd half, and Oregon responded by going 69 yards in 1:32, ending with a touchdown to take a 25-13 lead.

Later in the third quarter, Cook caught a crucial 3rd down pass over the middle, and had the conversion before three Ducks hammered him and he fumbled. Two plays later, Marcus Mariota hit a wide open Darren Carrington for a 39-yard TD pass and a 39-20 Oregon lead.

There are 19 minutes left in Florida State’s season and Jameis Winston’s college career.
