Louisville, KY (SportsNetwork.com) - Florida State escaped by the skin of its teeth once again on Thursday. The second-ranked Seminoles fell into a huge hole against upset-minded Louisville but scored 35 of the final 42 points to pull out a hard-fought 42-31 victory in a hostile environment. Flirting with disaster has become commonplace for the Seminoles, who beat Clemson in overtime last month, overcame a 17-point deficit against NC State and needed a questionable pass interference call in the final seconds to upend previously unbeaten Notre Dame their previous time out. Thursdays comeback may have topped them all, as they trailed 21-0 against one of the nations stingiest defenses and never blinked an eye. Dalvin Cook scored the go-ahead touchdown with 3:46 left in regulation, and FSU (8-0, 5-0 ACC) miraculously ran its school-record winning streak to 24. The defending national champions, who came in at No. 2 in the first college playoff rankings released on Tuesday, were hit in the mouth early but made big play after big play in second half. Jameis Winston was intercepted three times and still wound up throwing for 401 yards and three touchdowns for the Seminoles, who racked up 574 yards of total offense -- more than 300 than the Cardinals had allowed coming in. Cook ran for 110 yards and two scores, while FSUs defense bore down in clutch situations, holding Louisville to 1-of-11 efficiency on third down. Will Gardner threw for 330 yards, 214 of which went to DeVante Parker, while Michael Dyer gashed the Seminoles for 134 yards and three TDs on the ground. Louisville (6-2, 4-2) was trying to end FSUs 19-game win streak against ACC opponents in their first meeting as conference rivals. That nearly came to fruition before the bounces started going the other way. A lucky break in the final minute of the first half helped the Seminoles pull within a manageable 21-7 at the break. Winston and Karlos Williams botched an exchange near the goal line, and tight end Nick OLeary was in the right spot for the recovery in the end zone. The ball went FSUs way again on the first play of the second half. Winston was intercepted by Gerod Holliman for the second time but tracked down the defensive back and knocked the ball away. The Seminoles recovered the fumble and turned the ball over on downs near midfield, but after John Wallace padded Louisvilles lead with a 33-yard field goal, FSU scored 21 straight points to climb in front for the first time. Travis Rudolph ran right past the Louisville secondary for a 68-yard touchdown catch, and Cook took a simple draw and sprinted 40 yards for a score. One play after Holliman dropped what would have been his third interception, Winston completed a pass through traffic to Ermon Lane, who broke a tackle and went in for 47-yard touchdown that gave FSU a 28-24 lead with 12:48 left in regulation. The Cardinals answered quickly, as Parkers 51-yard catch set up Dyers 1-yard plunge over the goal line. After punting in enemy territory, the Seminoles forced a three-and-out and took over at their own 38 with 3:55 remaining. They scored on the next play as Cook shed a would-be tackler near the line of scrimmage and cruised up the sideline for the go-ahead TD. Four straight incompletions by Gardner gave the Seminoles the ball back, and Winstons 35-yard touchdown pass to Freddie Stevenson on third down sealed the outcome. Even though the Cardinals turned the ball over on downs near the goal line on their opening possession, they owned the first half. Dyer broke off a 17-yard run on the last play of the first quarter, added 20 more on the first snap of the second and finished off a quick drive with a 4- yard plunge into the end zone. Louisvilles defense, which came into the game with a nation-leading 15 interceptions, picked off Winston each of the next two FSU possessions. James Burgess returned his interception just past midfield, and it only took five plays for the Cardinals to make it a 14-0 game as Dyer went untouched for a 12-yard score. Winston overthrew his intended receiver on his next pass, and Holliman kept his feet inbounds while hauling it in at the FSU 43-yard line. Again the Cardinals quickly scored, with Gerald Christian catching one at his shoestrings and diving over the goal line for an 11-yard TD.

Chief prosecutor Gerrie Nel also accused Pistorius of tailoring his testimony to fit the evidence at the scene. Pistorius denied the accusations. Nel alleged that the Olympic runner changed his aim with his 9 mm pistol to ensure that he hit Steenkamp as she fell back against a magazine rack in a toilet cubicle. Pistorius said the claim was not true, one of many denials he has issued in four days of unrelenting cross-examination in a pivotal stage of the trial that is being broadcast on television and followed globally by people who once admired the double-amputee runner for his international achievements on the track. Nels methodical questioning put Pistorius under intense pressure, and the athlete sometimes became distressed, which in turn only prompted his accuser to ask him if he was using his emotional displays to mask his difficulty in answering the questions. Pistorius testified he fired four times through the closed toilet door in his home last year after hearing a "wood" sound that he mistook for the door about to open. He said he thought an intruder was about to come out and attack him. Pistorius said that, in retrospect, the noise he probably heard was the magazine holder being moved by his girlfriend. Nel said Pistorius killed Steenkamp intentionally after a fight and is lying about fearing an intruder. He said Pistorius heard Steenkamp, struck by the first shot, fall against the magazine rack and that he used that sound to adjust his aim. "Im saying you heard the magazine rack and you changed your aim," Nel said to the Paralympic champion. Steenkamp was hit by three of the shots, prosecutors say, while one missed. "I wouldnt have heard anyone fall inside of the toilet while I was shooting," Pistorius replied to Nel, though directing his gaze to Judge Thokozile Masipa, who will decide on the verdict. The athlete faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder. He twice broke down crying, once when he was asked to repeat the order to leave that he says he shouted to the perceived intruder before firing through the door. Pistorius sobbbed and wailed again when Nel insisted that he knew he was firing at his girlfriend, who was allegedly hiding from him after they fought in the pre-dawn hours of Feb.dddddddddddd 14, 2013. "I did not fire at Reeva," Pistorius said, crying as Masipa announced the days second unscheduled break. After the judge left the courtroom, Pistorius stood sobbing with his body trembling and turned away from the gallery. Nel also tried to pin Pistorius on whether he intended to shoot at the intruder, but Pistorius said he did not intend to do so and that he was terrified at the time. "I didnt have time to think about what I wanted to do," Pistorius said. That prompted Nel to question whether Pistorius was changing his legal strategy from "self-defence" to "involuntary action" and he later said Pistorius did not fire a warning shot. Pistorius said that when he shot he had no idea who was behind the door, in response to Nels remark that he didnt know whether a child, an unarmed burglar or more than one person could have been in the toilet. "You never gave them a chance, in your version," Nel said, building the prosecution case that Pistorius shot to kill. Pistorius was also accused of tailoring his version to fit evidence at the scene, with Nel painstakingly listing alleged inconsistencies in the account and alleging that Pistorius had "concocted" his version of the shooting. "Youre tailoring your version as youre sitting there," Nel said. He accused Pistorius of being a stickler for detail on some matters, in contrast to his frequent statements on the witness stand that he could not remember aspects of his testimony. Nel noted that Pistorius earlier said he warned Steenkamp to call police about an intruder in a whisper, contradicting later testimony that he spoke in a "low tone" and the prosecutor also said blood spatter evidence indicated that the athletes statement about the location of a duvet in the bedroom was false. Pistorius has said the duvet was on the bed, and that police photographs of the bed cover on the floor suggest that police moved it there after the shooting. Nel said a pattern of blood drops on the duvet and on the carpet nearby show that it was on the floor before police arrived, and that its location amounts to evidence that the couple had been having an argument.
