An unlikely kick a week ago doomed Florida State.
An unlikely blocked kick now might have saved the Seminoles’ season .
DeMarcus Walker pushed through the line and blocked Miami kicker Michael Badgley’s point-after attempt with 1:38 remaining, and that was the difference as No. 23 Florida State escaped with a 20-19 victory over the 10th-ranked Hurricanes — the Seminoles’ seventh straight win over their archrival.
The Hurricanes were in position to tie it after Brad Kaaya connected with Stacy Coley on an 11-yard touchdown pass. But the 6-foot-3 Walker pushed through some blockers and got his arm outstretched just enough to knock away what would have been the tying point from Badgley.
So once again, in a series defined so many times by missed kicks by the Seminoles — like “Wide Right I” in 1991 that wound up helping Miami win the national championship, an accomplishment the Hurricanes celebrated the 25th anniversary of Saturday — there’s now a new piece of lore.
With every Navy touchdown, No. 6 Houston saw its hope of playing for the national championship become a little more distant.
After the Cougars had their quest for an unbeaten season dashed in a 46-40 loss , all they could do is shrug.
Will Worth ran for 115 yards and threw for two touchdowns to help the Midshipmen (4-1, 3-0 American Athletic Conference) pull off the upset. Navy hadn’t defeated a Top 10 team since 1984, when it topped No. 2 South Carolina in Annapolis.
When it was over, streams of the Navy Brigade stormed the field to surround the players, most of them jumping for joy.

RED RIVER RIVALRY
Baker Mayfield first donned the giant gold cowboy hat — awarded to the winner of the Red River rivalry — then ran around the field with the Oklahoma Sooners flag.
The Oklahoma quarterback who grew up in the Austin area also made three long sprints down the field during the game. Those were to the end zone to celebrate touchdown passes to Dede Westbrook as the 20th-ranked Sooners held on to win 45-40 over the beleaguered Texas Longhorns in the annual game Mayfield knows so much about.
Westbrook set a single-game Sooners record with 232 yards receiving on 10 catches, including three TDs longer than 40 yards.
