TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Quarterback Chris Rix will start for No. 13 Florida State on Saturday against Duke, returning to the job he lost six games ago to Wyatt Sexton.

Rix sprained his right ankle against Clemson on Sept. 25. Sexton relieved and led Florida State to a win in that game and the next four.

Sexton was 14 for 30 for 164 yards in a 20-17 loss to Maryland last Saturday and was relieved by Rix, who went 8-for-21 for 140 yards and a touchdown pass.

Rix, a senior, has started 37 games for Florida State but has been inconsistent throughout his career with an 0-5 record against rival Miami.

FSU coach Bobby Bowden also said Monday he will replace starting kicker Xavier Beitia on field-goal attempts with freshman Gary Cismesia. Beitia missed three field goals against Maryland.
