Tallahassee, FL--'The U' was giving the Noles a run for their money in the first half. However, after Florida State dominated the Canes, it was Seminole nation that was laughing all the way to the bank.

A Florida TaxWatch spokesperson says this match-up also brings free publicity to the city.

According to the TaxWatch, Tallahassee could be rolling in the dough after the season is over. Hotels around Downtown were all sold out.
Governor's Inn located in that area say they were booked weeks before the showdown. The hotel says they raised prices from about $150 to a whoping $399. The TaxWatch says FSU having a winning streak also brings eyes on Florida's Capital city.

The TaxWatch says the state did not benefit from the game.

They say the impact was not significant, since the fan bases for these two teams are primarily Florida residents.
