PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Christian Ponder threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as Florida State beat No. 7 BYU 54-28 Saturday, ending the Cougars' 18-game home winning streak and probably any hopes they had of a BCS berth.
Florida State (2-1) was too fast for the BYU (2-1) and avoided its first 1-2 start in 20 years.
Three weeks after upsetting Oklahoma in the season opener, BYU couldn't keep up with Florida State and the Cougars' BCS aspirations faded a little bit on each drive by the Seminoles.
The Seminoles pounced for 10 points in the final 24 seconds of the second quarter and added two touchdowns in the third, running away in the Cougars' home opener.
Ponder was 21-for-26 for 195 yards and Ty Jones ran for 108 yards and a touchdown.
