Tallahassee, Fla. • EJ Manuel tossed two touchdown passes and Devonta Freeman ran for two more scores to lead No. 11 Florida State to a 48-7 victory over Duke on Saturday.

Florida State's win coupled with North Carolina State's loss to North Carolina puts the Seminoles (8-1, 5-1) back in control of the Atlantic Coast Conference's Atlantic Division while Duke (6-3, 3-2) dropped out of the undisputed lead in the league's muddled Coastal Division.

Tyler Hunter returned a punt 75 yards for a score, and Dustin Hopkins kicked a career-best 56-yard field goal to help the Seminoles offset losing four fumbles.

Duke quarterback Sean Renfree was knocked out of the game in the second quarter with an unspecified head injury. —
