5 Things, Bowl Edition: Notre Dame & Florida State

  1. Both defenses are efficient at limiting sustained drives: Notre Dame ranks 25th in 3rd down successes against (35.09%); FSU, 18th (33.88%).
  2. Neither offense is that explosive. ND is 56th nationally in 20+ yard big plays on offense (54). FSU is 45th (58).
  3. Both defenses are decent at stopping the big play. Notre Dame ranks #4 nationally in limiting 20+ yard big plays against (32). FSU is 6th (34).
  4. Gotta love @BillConnelly1's covariance work (twurl.nl/y8hw0h): FSU Offense blew out bad defenses, laid down against good defenses; and stout against all offenses faced.
  5. Accordingly, ND played down to a few of the lesser defenses and offenses it faced, but not glaringly so.
