As troubles swirl around them, the FSU Seminoles are off to their best start since 2015.

The Seminoles ran their record to 4-0 with a comfortable 44-14 victory over Boston College Saturday night. If that isn't impressive enough, consider this: Two seasons ago, FSU didn't win four games in the entire season.

Quarterback Jordan Travis played less than three quarters and still threw for 321 yards.

A quick start spurred the Seminoles . The Noles scored 14 points in just over two minutes and then coasted to their win.

Tennessee 38, Florida 33: The Gators' defense simply couldn't slow down the Vols enough in their SEC opener.

Florida got its best game from quarterback Anthony Richardson, who threw for 453 yards and ran for 62. But the Volts found enough gaps in the Gators' defense to take a 38-21 lead and hold on.

The Vols' Herndon Hoooker hit 22 of 28 passes for 349 yards. Hooker also ran for 142 yards.

Florida is home on Saturday against Eastern Washington University.

Louisville 41, USF 3: If you thought that last week's close loss to Florida meant a better day for the Bulls, you've got a long wait coming.

The Bulls gave up 542 yards of total offense to Louisville, which ran away from a USF team that didn't get much accomplished. Quarterback Malik Cunningham threw for 186 yards and ran for 113, accounting for four touchdowns.

Quarterback Gerry Bohanon threw for just 62 yards for USF.

"Obviously we are very disappointed," said USF coach Jeff Scott. "We played very poorly. We didn't coach well and we didn't play well — that's the bottom line."

Scott is now 4-21 at USF.

Middle Tennessee State 45, Miami 31: The Hurricanes' defense simply couldn't stop Middle Tennessee State Chase Cunningham threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns.

It was MTSU's first win against a top 25 team in 32 tries.
