TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Everett Golson threw four touchdown passes in his Florida State debut to help the 10th-ranked Seminoles beat Texas State 59-16 on Saturday night.
The graduate transfer from Notre Dame was 19 for 25 for 302 yards. He matched his career high for touchdown passes set last year in Notre Dame's victory over Syracuse.
Dalvin Cook ran for 156 yards and two touchdowns, Mario Pender added 92 yards on 14 carries, and Florida State averaged 6.5 yards a carry.
Texas State cut it to 14-10 in the second quarter on Chris Nutall's 4-yard run, but Florida State scored on seven of its next eight drives. The Bobcats didn't cross into Seminoles' territory again until the fourth quarter.
The start of the game was delayed 63 minutes because of lightning.
