Dalvin Cook ran for a career-high 144 yards and No. 3 Florida State survived Jameis Winston's struggles to beat Florida, 24-19, on Saturday night in Will Muschamp's final game as the Gators' coach.
The defending national champion Seminoles have won 28 games in a row, and completed consecutive undefeated regular seasons for the first time in school history. Florida State is the 16th team to accomplish the feat since 1950.
The Seminoles (12-0) will face Georgia Tech in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game Dec. 6.
"Survive and advance," said Florida State Coach Jimbo Fisher. "That's what we did."
Winston threw a career-high four interceptions, including three in the first quarter. He finished 12 for 24 for 125 yards and two touchdowns. Tight end Nick O'Leary had two second-quarter touchdown catches to give Florida State a 21-9 lead.
The Gators (6-5) jumped out to a 9-0 lead, but the offense struggled. Treon Harris threw for 169 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Florida's Austin Hardin missed two second-half field-goal attempts that would have given the Gators the lead. Both field-goal attempts came after Florida State miscues.
Winston threw his fourth interception with 2:36 left in the third quarter when Brian Poole tipped the ball to himself on a throw intended for Travis Rudolph. Hardin missed the 52-yarder to the right five plays later.
Fisher called an odd fake punt that had defensive end Mario Edwards Jr. being stopped short on a rush to give Florida the ball with 11:48 left in the fourth quarter. Hardin missed a 42-yarder five plays later.
The Seminoles were held to a season-low 306 offensive yards and a season-low 125 passing yards. Winston's 125 passing yards was a career low.
Muschamp walked off the field for the final time as Florida coach arm in arm with his wife.
