Chris Rix passed for 327 yards and three touchdowns to lead Florida State to a 37-0 victory over Notre Dame on Saturday, the second worst home loss in Irish history. Craphonso Thorpe had seven catches for 217 yards, including TD catches of 35 and 38 yards to help the Seminoles (8-1) get revenge for an embarrassing 34-24 loss to the Irish last year. The Irish, held scoreless at home for the first time since 1978, fell to 2-6 for the first time since 1963. Rix, benched a year ago for his poor performance against Notre Dame, wasted no time in getting started, completing a 38-yard pass to Thorpe on the first play from scrimmage. The pass was the longest of season against the Irish and set up a 40-yard field goal by Xavier Beitia. It remained the longest pass play of the season until the third play of Florida State’s next possession, when Rix threw a 51-yard pass to Thorpe. That set up a 6-yard TD pass from Rix to P.K. Sam, which gave the Seminoles a 10-0 lead. read more
