Don't miss: Instant analysis | quotes | weekend recap

Offense

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.

Defense

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.

Special Teams

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.
