TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Oct. 11 (UPI) -- Sean Taylor returned one of his two interceptions 50 yards for a touchdown Saturday afternoon to help second-ranked Miami pound No. 5 Florida State, 22-14.

On a wet, rainy in Tallahassee, both teams committed five turnovers, but the Hurricanes were in control from the outset. The Seminoles (5-1) were trying to use this game as a measuring stick and failed miserably after falling behind 19-0 at halftime.

Miami (6-0) has won back-to-back games at Doak Campbell Stadium for the first time since 1985 and '87. Their turnovers, including three interceptions by quarterback Brock Berlin, did not prove costly.

The Seminoles drove down to the Miami five yard-line midway through the fourth quarter, but a fourth-down pass by quarterback Chris Rix was incomplete, ending any real chance at victory for the Seminoles.

Rix completed 20-of-42 passes for 235 yards and had a late touchdown pass, but was intercepted twice.

For Miami, Jarrett Payton carried 24 times for 100 yards and scored a touchdown on a pass reception.
