    FSU-Florida: 1964

    Tallahassee, FL, November 21, 1964 - This was the first win for the Seminoles in this series that began in 1958. Florida State University, clearly the best football team on the field on this sunny Saturday afternoon, whipped what was supposed to be the University of Florida's best team ever. The score was 16-7.

    The classic passing combination of Steve Tensi and Fred Biletnikoff busted Florida wide open with a 55-yard touchdown collaberation in the second quarter. Then Les Murdock kicked three field goals, a 24-yarder, a 34-yarder and a 40-yarder.

    During the week Florida players wore stickers on their helmets in practice reading "Never, FSU, Never." The thrust may have added considerable fuel to FSU's already blazing fire.

    Immediately after the game Florida State accepted a bid to the Gator Bowl.
