The third-ranked Florida State Seminoles routed the then seventh-ranked Miami Hurricanes in their Saturday night showdown, 41-14.

While the first half was mighty close, the Seminoles and the coaching staff made some necessary adjustments in the second half and Miami didn’t have a prayer the rest of the way. Florida State dominated the ‘Canes in every facet of the game.

In that second half, they were just more physical than Miami, by far.

How much more physical were they? Well, just watch Florida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin on a Devonta Freeman TD run in the second half.

Now, one huge criticism of a lot of wide receivers that has lived on throughout the years in the game of football is their unwillingness to participate in blocking whenever they’re not getting the ball. It adds to the diva aura that surrounds the position.

But, not all wide receivers are like that, and Benjamin is certainly in that group, as you can see here:


Well, you can cross off “Kelvin Benjamin needs to block better” from Jimbo Fisher’s practice list.
