TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Preston Parker caught a touchdown pass and scored on an end around Saturday to help Florida State end a two-game losing streak with a 25-6 victory over Duke, handing the Blue Devils' their 22nd straight Atlantic Coast Conference loss.
After going more than five quarters without an offensive touchdown, the Seminoles made it to the end zone six minutes into the third quarter when Parker raced 9 yards with a short sideline pass from Drew Weatherford, giving Florida State a 16-0 lead.
Florida State, which plays next Saturday at undefeated Boston College, led 9-0 at halftime on three field goals by Gary Cismesia.
Parker scored his second TD late in the third quarter on a 14-yard run to make the score 22-0.
After Cismesia kicked his fourth field goal, Duke (1-7, 0-5 ACC) avoided a shutout when Thaddeus Lewis lofted a 3-yard pass to a wide-open Brandon King in the right front corner of the end zone with 8:07 left.
Florida State (5-3, 2-3 ACC) rolled up a season-high 534 yards and 30 first downs while holding Duke to 222 yards and 9 first downs. The Blue Devils managed only 49 yards and two first downs in the first half.
The win was Bobby Bowden's 371st coaching victory and gave him a two-game cushion over Penn State's Joe Paterno, whose team lost Saturday to Ohio State.
Weatherford, making his first start in four games after being benched in favor of Xavier Lee, completed 35 of 47 for 339 yards despite not having junior wide receiver Greg Carr, who missed the game with a wrist injury.
Carr, who has 24 career touchdown catches, had caught six TD catches in two previous games against the Blue Devils.
But De'Cody Fagg took up the slack with 9 catches for 134 yards and Richard Goodman had 11 catches for 73 yards, but injured his right ankle late in the fourth quarter.
Parker had 8 catches for 89 yards and Antone Smith tacked on 146 yards on 23 carries, but was also knocked out of the contest late with a left ankle sprain.
Florida State's Patrick Robinson had an interception for the fourth straight game.
