After doing well in occasional backup play, Kannell won the job again as a sophomore in 1993, despite increased competition.
The team later moved to alternate between Kanell and fellow sophomore Jon Stark as backups, though Kanell was given the start when Florida State held out Ward against Maryland due to bruised ribs and Kanell responded by completing 28 of 38 passes for 341 yards, five touchdowns, and no interceptions.
Overall that year, Kanell threw for 499 yards with 7 TD vs 0 INT while backing up Ward, who won the Heisman Trophy, Davey O’Brien, Maxwell, and Walter Camp Awards that year.
During his junior year, Kanell threw for 2,781 yards with 17 TD vs 13 INT on 380 pass attempts.
He was a part of the famous Choke at Doak game against Florida, where he led Florida State back from a 31-3 fourth-quarter deficit to tie the game.
He then beat Florida in the rematch at the Sugar Bowl dubbed the “Fifth Quarter in the French Quarter”, finishing the year with a 10–1–1 record.
In 1995, in his senior year, he threw for 2,957 yards with 32 TD vs 13 INT on 402 pass attempts. Kanell led the team to a 10–2 record, including a win over Notre Dame in the 1996 Orange Bowl.
