An Inclusive College Football Playoff – EAST Semifinals

Now, onto the East regionals of the mythical tournament.  The South regionals are here.

Florida State 45,  Marshall 42

(Tallahassee, FL) – Stop me if you heard this, but Florida State was in trouble again.  Rakeem Cato and the Marshall Thundering Herd were not intimidated entering Doak Campbell Stadium, and when Justin Haig kicked a 26 yard FG to start the 3rd quarter, Marshall had a 24-14 lead.  However, Florida State came back again behind three second half touchdown passes from Jameis Winston.  Winston threw for 252 yards and 4 touchdowns, and Delvin Cook ran for 131 yards.  People keep wondering when the luck will run out, but Florida State survives for now.

TCU 26, Boise State 6

(Fort Worth, TX) – Aaron Green’s 43 yard run early in the 3rd quarter gave TCU a lead they would not relinquish as they strangled the Boise State offense 26-6.  Boise State, in a rainy Fort Worth, was able to stay with the Horned Frogs for a half, emerging with a 3-2 lead against the highest scoring team in the country.  However, the offense could not establish balance with a paltry 65 yards rushing.  Two late touchdowns in the fourth quarter sealed things.  TCU plays Florida State in Miami for the East finals.
