FSU football special teams didn’t begin the LSU game on the best note when Ryan Fitgerald sent the opening kickoff out of bounds to give the LSU offense great field position at their 40-yard line.
That ultimately led to a LSU 3-0 lead, and it didn’t look great when Fitzgerald missed a 47-yard field goal on FSU’s first possesion that would have tied the game 3-3.
However, FSU special teams blocked a 30-yard LSU field goal that would have made it a 7-6 game, with FSU leading late in the second quarter.
FSU special teams showed up to recover a muffed punt to set the Noles up to take a big lead into halftime before they squandered the opportunity. However, it did take an offensive possession away from LSU.
Fitzgerald redeemed himself with a short field goal to give the Noles a 10-3 lead about mid-way through the third quarter.
Special teams showed up again when LSU muffed a punt late in the game, and that should have put the game away before a Treshaun Ward fumble gave LSU new life. However, FSU special teams rose one final time to block the extra point as time expired to give the Noles the win.
