Stacy Revere

FSU increased its lead from 31-7 to 41-7 and played a lot of reserves.

Down Yard Play O-form D-form Analysis
1-G at Fs35 Start of 3rd quarter, clock 15:00, BC ball on BC35.
BC will kick to begin the 2nd half and defend the south goal.
Drive: 3 plays, 23 yards, TOP 00:12
Freese,N kickoff 65 yards to the FS0, touchback.
1-10 at Fs25 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 15:00.
1-10 at Fs25 Manuel, EJ at QB for Florida State.
1-10 at Fs25 Manuel, EJ deep out pass complete to SMITH, R. for 28 yards to the BC47, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Simmons,J), clock 14:51. 21 43 The space between BC's deep and underneath coverage is ridiculous. This pass is completed 20 yards downfield and the deep coverage is still five yards off when Rodney catches it. Nice aggressive start to the half, and a good anticipation throw from EJ.
1-10 at Bc47 Manuel, EJ sideline pass complete to SMITH, R. for 5 yards to the BC42 (Divitto,S;Asprilla,M), clock 14:16. 21 43 Speed out instead of the deep out they threw last time. Jimbo is really in rhythm as a playcaller. The fact that everything he calls is working helps.
2-5 at Bc42 THOMPSON, C. rush over left guard for 14 yards to the BC28, 1ST DOWN FS (Simmons,J), clock 13:53. 20 gun 43 This is a counter-trey from gun, with zone read action freezing the defense rather than a counter step from the back. Playside OL block down, guard and tackle pull around the center and lead through the hole. Stealing a page from the Gus Mahlzan/Chad Morris offense here. Haven't seen FSU run this play before.
1-10 at Bc28 Manuel, EJ screen pass complete to THOMPSON, C. for 9 yards to the BC19, out-of-bounds, clock 13:29. 20 gun 43 EJ takes the easy completion to the open back in the flat and lets him turn a 3 yard pass into a 9 yard gain. These type of plays and his checks at the line are the reason FSU has gone from having one of the highest rates of 3 and outs last year to one of the lowest this year.
2-1 at Bc19 THOMPSON, C. rush over right guard for 2 yards to the BC17, 1ST DOWN FS (Clancy,N), clock 13:00. 21 43 Inside zone play and Thompson actually misses a cutback lane that could have gone for a TD, but the line gets enough push to get the first down.
1-10 at Bc17 Manuel, EJ screen pass complete to THOMPSON, C. for 9 yards to the BC8 (Sylvia,S), clock 12:18. 21 gun 43 Again, just taking the easy yards on first down and letting your athletes make you look good.
2-1 at Bc08 PRYOR, L. rush over right tackle for 5 yards to the BC3, 1ST DOWN FS (Pierre-Louis,K), clock 12:01. 21 gun 43 Outside zone play and Lonnie actually picks the wrong gap here, but just bulls his way through a few tackles an spins his way down to the 3. Just brutal running.
1-G at Bc03 PRYOR, L. rush over right end for 3 yards to the BC0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 11:45. 21 43 Fullback belly on the goal line again and Tre Jackson does a great job combo blocking the DT with Stork, then climbing to the second level and sealing off the linebacker. Lonnie has a clear lane to the end zone.
HOPKINS, D. kick attempt good.
Florida State 38, Boston College 7
Drive: 8 plays, 75 yards, TOP 03:22 Great drive. Methodical and efficient. The only plays that went for less than 8 yards were runs that went for first downs or touchdowns.
HOPKINS, D. kickoff 65 yards to the BC0, Elliott,D return 15 yards to the BC15 (STEVENS, T.).
1-10 at Bc15 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 11:38.
1-10 at Bc15 Rettig,C at QB for Boston College.
1-10 at Bc15 Rettig,C wide receiver screen pass complete to Dudeck, D for 4 yards to the BC19 (WILLIAMS, V.), clock 11:25. 11 gun 425 BC motions the receiver out of the backfield and hits a flat route to him. Vince Williams in man coverage is at a bit of a speed disadvantage but still makes the tackle for a moderate gain.
2-6 at Bc19 Williams,A rush over left tackle for 4 yards to the BC23 (JONES, C.;CARRADINE, C.), clock 10:50. 11 425 Off tackle run with the center pulling out in front of it. Christian Jones is in his gap and makes the tackle, but he's three yards downfield when he makes contact. Would like to see him be more aggressive and get in his hole at the line of scrimmage.
3-2 at Bc23 Timeout Boston College, clock 10:30.
3-2 at Bc23 Williams,A rush over left end for no gain to the BC23 (CARRADINE, C.), PENALTY BC holding declined, clock 10:25. 11 425 Toss sweep, run down by Carradine with an assist from the BC tight end hanging off his back.
4-2 at Bc23 Levano,G punt 52 yards to the FS25, GREENE, R. return 24 yards to the FS49 (Divitto,S). Very nice return by Green. No critical errors in the punt game so far.
Drive: 3 plays, 8 yards, TOP 01:39
1-10 at Fs49 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 09:59.
1-10 at Fs49 Manuel, EJ crossing pass complete to SMITH, R. for 16 yards to the BC35, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (Noel,J), clock 09:49. 11 gun 43 Every single member of the BC defense drops deep. Manuel diagnoses it and checks to a different play, hits Rodney Smith who is wide open on a slant. Wilder with a crushing block and Smith turns the 8 yard throw into a 16 yard gain.
1-10 at Bc35 Manuel, EJ flag pass intercepted by Asprilla,M at the BC12, Asprilla,M return 7 yards to the BC19 (WILDER, J.). 21 gun 43 O'Leary is wide open on a corner route in front of the safety. EJ sees a rush (that isn't very close) and is shying away at the end of his motion. Overthrow right into the safety's hands.
Drive: 2 plays, 16 yards, TOP 00:38
1-10 at Bc19 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 09:21.
1-10 at Bc19 Rettig,C screen pass complete to Dudeck, D for 7 yards to the BC26, out-of-bounds (WAISOME, N.), clock 09:14. 11 gun 425 Flat pass to the back again. Waisome needs to read the pattern better. Pass the vertical route off to the safety and meet the back in the flat closer to the line of scrimmage, before he can turn upfield and make a move on you.
2-3 at Bc26 Dudeck, D rush left for 2 yards to the BC28 (CARRADINE, C.;LAWRENCE, N. L.), clock 08:41. 11 425 Same off tackle play with the center pulling they ran earlier in the quarter. Nile Lawrence-Stample beats the block and forces the back to take a wider path and the rest of the defense pursues and closes nicely.
3-1 at Bc28 Williams,A rush over right tackle for no gain to the BC28 (LAWRENCE, N. L.), clock 08:06. 11 425 Draw play is played beautifully by the FSU DL. They control their blockers and stay in their lanes, then NLS gets off his block and makes a nice tackle. Goodness.
4-1 at Bc28 Levano,G punt 47 yards to the FS25, fair catch by GREENE, R..
Drive: 3 plays, 9 yards, TOP 01:44 Great quick change defense again.
1-10 at Fs25 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 07:37.
1-10 at Fs25 THOMPSON, C. rush over left end for 3 yards to the FS28 (Edebali,K), clock 07:23. 20 gun 43 Same counter-trey play but this time the backside LB reads it and gets through the gap left by the pulling linemen. Cam Erving plays patty-cake with the defensive end instead of blocking him and he finishes off the play.
2-7 at Fs28 Manuel, EJ sideline pass complete to SMITH, R. for 10 yards to the FS38, 1ST DOWN FS (Asprilla,M), clock 06:55. 11 gun 43 Curl route to Rodney Smith against soft coverage. Pitch and catch.
1-10 at Fs38 FREEMAN, D. rush right for 19 yards to the BC43, 1ST DOWN FS (Sylvia,S;Edebali,K), clock 06:26. 11 gun 43 Power play is met in the hole by BC, nice running by Devonta to bounce it outside then spin off the tackle of the corner. Good, hard running.
1-10 at Bc43 Manuel, EJ sideline pass complete to SMITH, R. for 15 yards to the BC28, 1ST DOWN FS (Asprilla,M), clock 05:59. 11 gun 43 Again, just a curl to Rodney against the huge cushion from the DB. BC is apparently content to give this up all the way down the field.
1-10 at Bc28 FREEMAN, D. rush over right tackle for 14 yards to the BC14, 1ST DOWN FS (Sylvia,S;Simmons,J), clock 05:34. 11 gun 43 Power play again, this time with Cam Erving pulling through the hole and demolishing the linebacker.
1-10 at Bc14 PENALTY BC offside defense (Murray,B) 5 yards to the BC9, clock 05:13.
1-5 at Bc09 FREEMAN, D. rush over right end for 2 yards to the BC7 (Borcich,K), clock 04:43. 11 gun 43 Counter play and Watson gets pushed into the backfield, disrupting Freeman's path, but he is still able to fight forward for 2 yards.
2-3 at Bc07 FREEMAN, D. rush left for loss of 1 yard to the BC8 (Pierre-Louis,K), clock 04:05. 21 43 EJ spots the WLB blitz and changes the play to an outside zone away from the blitz. The blitzing linebacker times his blitz perfectly and Watson can't get much of him and Matias falls down allowing the DT and blitzer to combine on the tackle.
3-4 at Bc08 Manuel, EJ timing route pass incomplete to BENJAMIN, K., clock 03:46. 21 43 Fade route to Benjamin. Poor route, but he gets both hands on the ball and should come down with it.
4-4 at Bc08 (Asprilla,M).
4-4 at Bc08 HOPKINS, D. field goal attempt from 26 GOOD, clock 03:43.
Florida State 41, Boston College 7
Drive: 9 plays, 67 yards, TOP 04:06
HOPKINS, D. kickoff 63 yards to the BC2, Elliott,D return 19 yards to the BC21 (SMITH, TEL.). Telvin Smith takes exception to one of BC's players continuing to block him after the play. BC is not handling adversity well.
1-10 at Bc21 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 03:31.
1-10 at Bc21 Williams,A rush over right tackle for 2 yards to the BC23 (JONES, C.;WILLIAMS, V.), clock 03:12. 11 425 FSU clearly expecting run here as they are in Cover 3 with Karlos Williams walked all the way up into linebacker territory. Makes a nice slicing move into the backfield and almost gets a TFL. This is a counter play and there's all sorts of penetration. Good job by the BC running back to get any positive yards out of this play.
2-8 at Bc23 Rettig,C crossing pass complete to Amidon,A for 9 yards to the BC32, 1ST DOWN BC (JONES, C.), clock 02:45. 11 425 Slant/flat concept. Waisome is there before the ball but the BC receiver does a good job of shielding him from the ball and making the catch.
1-10 at Bc32 Rettig,C deep pass incomplete to Amidon,A, clock 02:31. 11 gun 425 BC decides to take a shot and runs one of the lest convincing stop and go routes you'll ever see. Waisome plays it perfectly.
2-10 at Bc32 (WAISOME, N.).
2-10 at Bc32 Rettig,C throw away pass incomplete, QB hurry by WILLIAMS, V., clock 02:25. 11 gun 425 Looks like they're trying to hit another double move to the other side. There's pressure and Rettig throws it away from the pocket again.
3-10 at Bc32 Rettig,C sideline pass complete to Dudeck, D for 4 yards to the BC36 (Williams, P.J.), clock 02:00. 11 gun 425 Whip route by the back motioning out of the backfield gets open underneath but the secondary converges and keeps it to a short gain.
4-6 at Bc36 Levano,G punt 41 yards to the FS23, out-of-bounds.
Drive: 5 plays, 15 yards, TOP 01:50
1-10 at Fs23 FLORIDA STATE drive start at 01:41.
1-10 at Fs23 Manuel, EJ sideline pass complete to DENT, G. for 7 yards to the FS30 (Asprilla,M), clock 01:25. 11 gun 43 Same curl against the soft cushion that they've thrown to Rodney a bunch. Throw is high, but Dent brings it in. It's fair to question why the starters are in for this drive, but you wanted to see aggression from the coaching staff.
2-3 at Fs30 THOMPSON, C. rush over left end for 11 yards to the FS41, 1ST DOWN FS (Edebali,K;Sylvia,S), clock 01:02. 20 gun 43 Stretch play to the boundary. Nicely blocked and a good job of squeezing through a narrow lane by Thompson.
1-10 at Fs41 Manuel, EJ sideline pass complete to DENT, G. for 15 yards to the BC44 (Asprilla,M), PENALTY FS illegal block (HAGGINS, J.) 10 yards to the FS46, clock 00:42. 11 gun 43 Same curl route to Dent, whose knee barely grazes the ground, but pops up and keeps running. Now the clown show begins: First, Scooter does not block in the back. He starts to but pulls his hands away without making contact. Second, the "illegal block" occurs after Dent is ruled down by the replay. How they manage to decide that he was down AND to enforce the penalty is beyond me. It's one or the other, not both.
1-5 at Fs46 1st and 5.
Official Review: Previous play is under review.
Official Review: Call on the field is runner was down.
Official Review: Knee was down at the 49 yard line.
1-5 at Fs46 THOMPSON, C. rush right for 6 yards to the BC48, 1ST DOWN FS (Sylvia,S;Pierre-Louis,K), clock 00:31. 11 gun 43 Off tackle play with the playside guard pulling around and sealing the edge. Would be nice if Kenny Shaw could hold his block a little better here.
1-10 at Bc48 Manuel, EJ rush right for 5 yards to the BC43, out-of-bounds, clock 00:08. 11 gun 42 Play action boot and EJ is running this one all the way. Pretty aggressive block out front by O'Leary.
Drive: 5 plays, 34 yards, TOP 03:40
