As the Noles travel to Boston with all the oddsmakers on their side, it's good to remember that upsets do happen in this series. In 2007 Boston College was undefeated, no. 2 in the country and heavily favored against a 5 and 3 Florida State team. Even the weather was against the Noles on a chilly, wet night in November.
But Drew Weatherford, playing perhaps his best game as a Nole, engineered a 27-17 upset. Weatherford completed 29 of 45 for 354 yards, Preston Parker hauled in nine catches for 93 yards and a TD, while De'Cody Fagg caught six for 111 yards and a TD.
Matt Ryan, who later would be third overall pick in the NFL draft, threw three interceptions on the night. FSU sealed the deal when Geno Hayes swiped a Ryan pass with 1:10 to play, running it in for a 38-yard score.
Ryan's poor performance was widely believed to have lost him the Heisman Trophy that year. Today, he's one of the NFL's hottest signal callers. And Weatherford? He left football for the business world after a few seasons in the Arena Leauge. But on a nasty night in New England, it was Drew who looked like the QB that NFL scouts were drooling oveer.
