It's Florida State week, which makes it a great time to remember what was one of my favorite wins from the last 15 years. NC State improbably beat the Seminoles in 2001 after being blown out at home the year prior, and the victory was the first in Tallahassee by an ACC team since Florida State joined the league. It was a monumental win for Chuck Amato, who was trying to establish a legitimate program at a school that had little football culture and no facilities.
