A review of how Florida State did against the goals we set in the game preview.
More than 7 yards/play before garbage time: success. Florida State piled up almost 9.5 yards/play before garbage time set in.
No more than 1 turnover: failure. Florida State had two interceptions. On one, Rashad Greene bobbled the ball and the defender caught it. It was a good throw and was not Manuel's fault. The second was his fault, and Fisher called it "greedy."
60% or better touchdowns in the red zone: success. Florida State had seven trips to the red zone and five touchdowns. That's a very solid performance.
Less than 4.75 yards a play before garbage time: Success. FSU allowed just a hair over 4 yards/play before garbage time set in.
Force 2 turnovers: fail. Florida State's defense picked off only one pass.
50% or less TDs in the red zone: Success. BC entered the red zone twice, both before garbage time, and scored only one touchdown thanks to a nice stand on the goal line.
No turnovers: Thank God. Special teams were not perfect, and punt return was a bit of an issue for not taking advantage of possible returns, but overall FSU's special teams did not hurt them via turnovers and that's an improvement over the previous game.
