D/D Yard Formation Play What happened?
2-6 at Bc41 4-2-5 A Williams rush for 30 yards to the FS29, 1ST DOWN BC (Williams, P.J.;JERNIGAN, T.). Counter from gun. Joyner doesn't squeeze all that well, Walker is a bit out of control, Jones is late to flow, and Brooks whiffs downfield. Awful.
1-10 at Fs29 3-4 A Williams rush for 2 yards to the FS27 (HICKS, D.;SMITH, TEL.). Counter from heavy set. Casher squeezes well with proper arm, Jernigan holds point, Telvin fills quickly. Well played.
2-8 at Fs27 4-2-5 C Rettig pass complete to A Amidon for 10 yards to the FS17, 1ST DOWN BC, out-of-bounds (Williams, P.J.). Confusion in secondary. Joyner shifts inside to play cover 2, BC rolls to boundary, and the corner should have not dropped so deep.
1-10 at Fs17 3-4 M Willis rush for no gain to the FS17 (SMITH, TEL.). Excellent plays by Dan Hicks to hold edge, and Demonte McAllister to shoot the gap. BC was anxious about the bluffed blitz from Christian Jones.
2-10 at Fs17 3-4 A Williams rush for 8 yards to the FS9 (LAWRENCESTAMPLE). Nile Lawrence-Stample gets destroyed by double team. Awful. Must fight and stack or split. I want to give NLS benefit of the doubt and think he wasn't ready for the snap
3-2 at Fs09 4-4 A Williams rush for 1 yard to the FS8 (JOYNER, L.). Walker causes disruption, and hey, Christian Jones actually stands up a blocker. Well done.
4-1 at Fs08 N Freese field goal attempt from 24 GOOD, clock 11:19. Major tactical error by BC to not go for this. Kicking is much riskier.
Boston College 17, Florida State 3
Drive: 8 plays, 55 yards, TOP 04:04 One run played poorly, one confused coverage, and FSU holds for the field goal.
N Freese kickoff 65 yards to the FS0, touchback.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 11:19.
1-10 at Fs25 11 WINSTON, J. rush for 4 yards to the FS29 (S Divitto). Bootleg, BC covers up, Winston wastes no time to pick up four.
2-6 at Fs29 11 gun WINSTON, J. pass incomplete to GREENE, R., PENALTY BC pass interference 15 yards to the FS44, 1ST DOWN FS, NO PLAY. BC jams Greene way down the field. Nice pass pro from Winston on a defensive end.
1-10 at Fs44 21 bunch WINSTON, J. pass complete to GREENE, R. for 56 yards to the BC0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 10:35. BC plays cover two, corner tips it early, and Greene runs an awesome snake route. Winston hits him in stride. Good pass pro. BC may have made a coverage error here. Way, way too much space between the two safeties. BC tried to bait Winston into throwing hot to boundary with corner bluffing blitz. Winston doesn't take bait.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Boston College 17, Florida State 10
Drive: 2 plays, 75 yards, TOP 00:44 XXplosive
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 65 yards to the BC0, touchback.
BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 10:35.
1-10 at Bc25 A Williams rush for 15 yards to the BC40, 1ST DOWN BC (SMITH, TEL.), PENALTY FS substitution infraction declined. FSU is trying to change personnel, BC looked like it was changing personnel, then it snapped ball.
1-10 at Bc40 4-3 A Williams rush for loss of 1 yard to the BC39 (BROOKS, T.). Hicks and McAllister both do excellent job taking on blocks. DMac at end, Hicks at Will backer.
2-11 at Bc39 4-2-5 C Rettig pass complete to M Willis for 4 yards to the BC43 (HOLLIN, D.). Slip screen.
3-7 at Bc43 4-2-5 C Rettig rush for 2 yards to the BC45 (JERNIGAN, T.). Good coverage, Jernigan cleans up.
4-5 at Bc45 N Freese punt 36 yards to the FS19, fair catch by SHAW, K.. FSU maybe should have been called for hitting punter, but he may have been blocked into him.
Drive: 4 plays, 20 yards, TOP 02:18 Better playing of blocks, no ridiculous lack of discipline. Only decent play by BC was when FSU was substituting.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 08:17.
1-10 at Fs19 21 WILDER, J. rush for 2 yards to the FS21 (B Wolford). Inside zone. Hart passes up end to climb to backer. Not sure that's right call. Abram cuts end, not all that well. Wilder cannot keep his feet. BC played this pretty well.
2-8 at Fs21 11 gun WINSTON, J. sacked for loss of 2 yards to the FS19 (M Abdesmad). Tre' Jackson gets beat on a delayed blitz. Footwork is bad, doesn't punch it and stay balanced, BC actually screws this up, I think, running a green dog.
3-10 at Fs19 10 gun WINSTON, J. pass complete to WILDER, J. for 8 yards to the FS27 (S Daniels;S Sylvia). Awesome screen call by Jimbo Fisher, motion to field helps draw backers, BC does blitz, cut block missed by Stork (too low), or this may have gone for a lot of yards.
4-2 at Fs27 BEATTY, C. punt 47 yards to the BC26, S Evans return 34 yards to the FS40, out-of-bounds (MCDANIEL, J.). Very nice punt here. Excellent hangtime and kick. Joyner comes in out of control, and much of punt team takes bad angles and does not spread out enough. Easy to pin them.
Drive: 3 plays, 8 yards, TOP 02:02 Two or three mental errors by the offensive line here.
BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 06:15.
1-10 at Fs40 3-4 C Rettig rush for 1 yard to the FS39 (JERNIGAN, T.). Inside zone. Jernigan awesomely splits a double team, and Goldman controls and squeezes. Very well played. This is what this defense will look like more often in future.
2-9 at Fs39 3-4 A Williams rush for loss of 1 yard to the FS40 (CASHER, C.;BROOKS, T.). Counter. Chris Casher controls and flow follows over top. Well done. Goldman also controls. Stalemates on the line. Good work.
3-10 at Fs40 3-2-6 C Rettig pass incomplete to A Amidon (Williams, P.J.). Don't like McDaniel as an end here, but FSU blitzes Jones, pass pro is fine, seven in coverage, Williams should intercept this, but good break on the ball nonetheless. Cover 3
4-10 at Fs40 N Freese punt 40 yards to the FS0, touchback.
Drive: 3 plays, 0 yards, TOP 01:31 Awesome defense after the punt return.
FS ball on FS20.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 04:44.
1-10 at Fs20 11 gun WINSTON, J. pass complete to GREENE, R. for 11 yards to the FS31, 1ST DOWN FS (M Abdesmad). 5 in the box, Winston should check to run. Play action, hits Greene on a crosser. Good pass pro on safety blitz.
1-10 at Fs31 11 gun WINSTON, J. pass complete to O'LEARY, N. for 14 yards to the FS45, 1ST DOWN FS (K Pierre-Louis;S Rositano). Winston should check this to a run (6 in box, both safeties way deep). No blitz, pass pro meh, Hits O'Leary in stride on option route.
1-10 at Fs45 11 gun WINSTON, J. pass complete to SHAW, K. for 12 yards to the BC43, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (K Pierre-Louis). Maybe could check to run on this, too, but it's not as clear. Quick game, quick out, NFL throw to Shaw.
1-10 at Bc43 11 gun WINSTON, J. rush for 20 yards to the BC23, 1ST DOWN FS. BC is all up on the LOS, backs off into cover 3, FSU has an over route, pass pro is fine, Winston can't find anyone, nice scramble and an even better slide. BC trying to bait Winston here and he doesn't take bait.
1-10 at Bc23 21 gun WINSTON, J. rush for 7 yards to the BC16 (B Jones). Nice job by Erving to run his rusher past the pocket. Winston needs to throw this to Abram.
2-3 at Bc16 21 gun ABRAM, C. rush for 6 yards to the BC10, 1ST DOWN FS (J Rudolph). Zone to field. Total tendency breaker to give this to Abram. Excellent check by Winston. Abram quicker feet than expected. Nice blocks by Stork and Hart.
1-G at Bc10 21 WINSTON, J. pass complete to ABRAM, C. for 10 yards to the BC0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 01:49. Play action, fake isn't great, BC covers option #1 over top, Abram wide open, Winston puts it on him. Good pass pro.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 17, Boston College 17
Drive: 7 plays, 80 yards, TOP 02:55 XXXplosive
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 65 yards to the BC0, touchback. Nice high kick.
BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 01:49.
1-10 at Bc25 3-4 A Williams rush for loss of 1 yard to the BC24 (SMITH, TEL.). Unbalanced. FSU finally adjusts. Nobody up front plays this all that well, but Telvin is quick to recogniz and flies in. Good individual effort.
2-11 at Bc24 Timeout Florida State, clock 01:45.
2-11 at Bc24 3-4 A Williams rush for 1 yard to the BC25 (HOLLIN, D.;JONES, C.). Power. Desmond Hollin fights through two blocks. Awesome individual effort.

3-10 at Bc25 3-2-6 M Willis rush for 2 yards to the BC27 (MCDANIEL, J.). Counter draw, FSU isn't fooled.
4-8 at Bc27 Timeout Boston College, clock 00:56.
4-8 at Bc27 N Freese punt 33 yards to the FS40, fair catch by SHAW, K..
Drive: 3 plays, 2 yards, TOP 00:59 Very nice defense here. Moreso individual efforts than team defense, but sometimes that is needed.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 00:50.
1-10 at Fs40 10 gun WINSTON, J. sacked for loss of 9 yards to the FS31 (K Edebali). Cam Erving poor technique. Lunges against smaller defender. Fisher said they had an over route open, but Erving gives up the pressure.
2-19 at Fs31 10 FREEMAN, D. rush for 14 yards to the FS45 (S Daniels). Christian Green has his arms up like he doesn't know the play. Doesn't matter. Stretch to boundary, very well blocked, if Kenny Shaw can be a litle more aggresisve on the safety, Freeman might run for 79 instead of 14.
3-5 at Fs45 10 gun WINSTON, J. pass complete to SHAW, K. for 55 yards to the BC0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 00:00. Matias and Stork (more so Matias) allow a pressure, Winston ducks it. BC is for whatever reason not playing prevent defense here, given no time left on clock. Shaw does excellent job with scramble rules to go deep, and Winston does a great job to avoid pressure and give Shaw a catchable ball.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
