Few could have predicted Jacksonville State's 20-17 upset victory against Florida State at Doak Campbell Stadium on Saturday (September 11), especially not one of the Seminoles' players.
A photo shared by Twitter user Andrew Ferrelli appears to show a Florida State player dropping down to a knee and proposing to his girlfriend, despite his team suffering one of the most disappointing losses in program history.
"FSU player proposing on the field with Jacksonville St still celebrating in the background. You can’t make this stuff up," Ferrelli tweeted along with the photo.
It's worth noting that Ferrelli is the only individual who appeared to notice the image, which has yet to be confirmed by FSU or any local media outlets.
Florida State entered the game against its FCS opponent as a 27-point favorite in Las Vegas, with an over/under of 56.5 total points, most of which were assumed to be scored by the Seminoles.
Instead, FSU found itself clinging to a 17-14 lead with six seconds remaining before quarterback Zerrick Cooper completed a 59-yard touchdown pass to Damond Philyaw-Johnson, who broke multiple tackles before breaking the plane of the end zone with no time remaining.
Typically, Power 5 teams pay FCS opponents to participate in "tune-up games" that serve to provide a momentum boost before facing a conference schedule.
Instead, the Seminoles -- who were coming off a heartbreaking 41-38 overtime home loss to Notre Dame in Week 1 -- now have an 0-2 record entering ACC play against Wake Forest in Week 3.
