Desroy Maxwell entered the game with no stats. Zero stats. He played in 11 games and started two of them. But it takes a true freshman tight end, sometimes, to make a big play in the Orange Bowl. Maxwell ran a fake punt for 35 yards to turn a potentially sad drive into points. A swing pass to Tommylee Lewis moved them to a first and goal, but no dice going further as Mathew Sims gave them a 25-yarder. FSU leads 7-3.
