TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ After nearly a month on the bench, Drew
Weatherford has been restored as Florida State's starting
quarterback for Saturday's homecoming game against Duke.
In a replay from last season, Weatherford again reclaimed the
job from Xavier Lee in Florida State's muddled quarterback
situation. This marks Weatherford's third chance at nailing down
the starting job.
And for the second time in his career, Lee has been yanked.
In Saturday's 37-29 loss to Miami, Lee was intercepted twice and
had two fumbles, including one that was recovered by Miami for a
key late-game touchdown.
Florida State (4-3, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) has now lost
10 of its last 14 league games after losing its second straight
Saturday and faces a demanding November schedule with road games at
No. 2 Boston College, No. 8 Virginia Tech and No. 9 Florida.
Duke (1-6, 0-4 ACC) has lost 21 straight ACC games since a win
over Clemson late in the 2004 season.
