D/D Yard Form Result What happened?
2-G at Bc12 21 gun bunch WINSTON, J. pass incomplete to O'LEARY, N.. Tight coverage on O'Leary
3-G at Bc12 11 gun WINSTON, J. rush for 9 yards to the BC3 (J Keyes). BC drops 8 into coverage, think Winston expected blitz. Scramble rules, O'Leary falls down, nowhere to throw it. Smart not to force anything.
4-G at Bc03 AGUAYO, R. field goal attempt from 20 GOOD, clock 14:07.
Florida State 41, Boston College 27
Drive: 9 plays, 80 yards, TOP 03:03 Solid drive to cover the field.
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 60 yards to the BC5, D Dudeck return 11 yards to the BC16 (ELIGWE, U.). Eligwe great personal effort to beat blocker and make tackle.
BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 14:07.
1-10 at Bc16 3-4 C Rettig pass incomplete (MCALLISTER, D.). BC goes spread with 21 personnel. Quick game from BC, McAllister beats cut block with good technique, and bats ball.
2-10 at Bc16 4-2-5 C Rettig pass incomplete. Good coverage on tight end by Telvin, physical in phase.
3-10 at Bc16 5-0-6 C Rettig pass intercepted by Williams, P.J. at the BC20, Williams, P.J. return 20 yards to the BC0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 13:41. FSU in a 5-down, no-backer alignment. All five come, and Rettig makes an awful pass. Williams didn't really do anything for the PICK, but he did have good press coverage. Good visiion to find the open field and score after catching ball thrown right at chest. Coverage, I think, was C1 robber(rat). Williams' ball security here is awful terrible. Worse than Deion Sanders.
Drive: 3 plays, 0 yards, TOP 00:26 That's very good defense, obviously.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 48, Boston College 27
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 65 yards to the BC0, M Willis return 25 yards to the BC25 (ANDREWS, N.).
BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 13:41.
1-10 at Bc25 3-4 A Williams rush for 9 yards to the BC34 (ELIGWE, U.). Unbalanced by BC. FSU is lined up OK initially, but they don't adjust to motion and there's a natural bubble between end and backer. McAllister gets destroyed against a double team. Slow at the snap. So much so that the backers cannot flow. Also, Eligwe needs to squeeze this more.
2-1 at Bc34 4-3 M Willis rush for 16 yards to the 50 yardline, 1ST DOWN BC (RAMSEY, J.). Counter, Jones is late over the top
1-10 at Bc50 3-4 C Rettig sacked for loss of 5 yards to the BC45 (GOLDMAN, E.). Well timed blitz. Williams from boundary gets Casher singled up on a guard in space and Goldman on a running back.
2-15 at Bc45 4-2-5 C Rettig pass complete to A Amidon for 4 yards to the BC49 (HOLLIN, D.). Sometimes you get lucky AND play well. FSU's stunt/twist screws up BC's attempt at a tunnel screen. Tackling here was poor, but chaos screwed it up. And everyone gave good effort.
3-11 at Bc49 4-1-6 C Rettig rush for 10 yards to the FS41 (Williams, P.J.;ANDREWS, N.). And sometimes you play it well and get unlucky. The pass rush here was so good that Rettig immediately panickd and took off, with nobody on him for some yards.
4-1 at Fs41 4-4 A Williams rush for 24 yards to the FS17, 1ST DOWN BC, out-of-bounds (BROOKS, T.). P.J. Williams tries to make a play but doesn't do his damn job, which is contain. Telvin Smith and Christian Jones slow to flow over top, but even if they did, this is still a first down due to Williams' error, but it would not have gone for 24.
1-10 at Fs17 4-4 C Rettig pass complete to M Moore for 17 yards to the FS0, 1ST DOWN BC, TOUCHDOWN, clock 09:44. Fisher said that the defensive end here needs to stay with the tight end. What I think he means is that the edge defender (Casher) has Flat coverage and needs to stick with that. Otherwise, I am not sure. FSU is clearly in zone here, not man, and nobody is playing flat to the boundary.
N Freese kick attempt good.
Florida State 48, Boston College 34
Drive: 7 plays, 75 yards, TOP 03:57 It's not an excuse, but FSU sure seemed to be in pass rush mode up 21 in the 4Q following a pick-six. BC had other plans, remaining balanced.
N Freese kickoff 65 yards to the FS0, touchback.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 09:44.
1-10 at Fs25 22 i WILLIAMS, K. rush for 3 yards to the FS28 (S Sylvia;S Divitto). It seems a little early to be going to the four-minute offense. Good tough run by Karlos on OZ.
2-7 at Fs28 11 gun WINSTON, J. rush for 7 yards to the FS35, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds. Winston doesn't see (Shaw?) running wide open deep for the TD, But good scramble.
1-10 at Fs35 11 gun WILLIAMS, K. rush for 3 yards to the FS38 (S Daniels;B Jones). ZR w/ IZ give. Fine run. Think Winston misses a check here because Fisher got on him almost as Williams was being tackled.
2-7 at Fs38 11 gun WINSTON, J. rush for 13 yards to the BC49, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds. Blitz flushes Winston, good hustle by Erving to cut backer and get Winston extra five yards. Good evasion by JW.
1-10 at Bc49 11 gun PENALTY FS false start 5 yards to the FS46. Tre' Jackson with the false start. Winston did some weird foot stomp and yell move right before this.
1-15 at Fs46 11 gun WINSTON, J. pass complete to WILDER, J. for 10 yards to the BC44 (M Asprilla). Blitz, good job to get ball to checkdown and get back on schedule. Blitz handled well, but Bobby Hart was lazy with feet and allowed inside pressure.
2-5 at Bc44 20 gun WILDER, J. rush for loss of 2 yards to the BC46 (C Wujciak;B Jones). Stretch to boundary, think Matias needs to stay with double w/ Stork for hair longer. BC blitz here made blocking this difficult.
3-7 at Bc46 Timeout Boston College, clock 06:17.
3-7 at Bc46 21 WINSTON, J. pass intercepted by D Williams at the BC20, D Williams return 16 yards to the BC36 (FREEMAN, D.). FSU snaps the ball before BC is ready. Benjamin is on a double move, but Winston thinks he has him and throws it flat. In a way, BC not being lined up screwed up Winston's read. Fisher says if he sticks with it and lays it over the top this is a touchdown. I initially thought Benjamin needed to fight back for this a bit, but it's not that bad.
Drive: 7 plays, 29 yards, TOP 03:37 A good amount of time off the clock for not a lot of yards.
BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 06:07.
1-10 at Bc36 4-2-5 A Amidon rush for 9 yards to the BC45 (JOYNER, L.). End around, Desmond Hollin over runs the play, but does hustle back hard. Ramsey comes in without a great angle and is blocked.
2-1 at Bc45 4-2-5 C Rettig pass complete to A Amidon for 4 yards to the BC49, 1ST DOWN BC (RAMSEY, J.). Quick game. Up two scores, FSU is making sure not to allow double move.
1-10 at Bc49 4-2-5 C Rettig sacked for loss of 10 yards to the BC39 (HOLLIN, D.). Awesome explosion from Jernigan, Hollin cleans up.
2-20 at Bc39 4-1-6 C Rettig pass incomplete to D Crimmins.
3-20 at Bc39 4-1-6 C Rettig pass complete to A Amidon for 15 yards to the FS46 (BROOKS, T.). Good pass rush by Jones, Thomas, Hollin. Short crosser to Amidon, missed takles Joyner and Brooks gives him another 5 yards.
4-5 at Fs46 5-0-6 C Rettig pass complete to B Miller for 8 yards to the FS38, 1ST DOWN BC (JOYNER, L.). Tight coverage by Joyner and a nice play by Rettig to avoid pass rush.
1-10 at Fs38 4-1-6 C Rettig pass complete to D Dudeck for 20 yards to the FS18, 1ST DOWN BC (RAMSEY, J.). BC pulling out all the stops. This is a fake tunnel screen that FSU doesn't play all that badly. Tight window and Rettig drills the pass.
1-10 at Fs18 4-1-6 C Rettig pass incomplete to D Crimmins (JOYNER, L.). Good pass rush, and good coverage by Joyner.
2-10 at Fs18 3-2-6 C Rettig pass complete to M Willis for 4 yards to the FS14, out-of-bounds. Blitz, hot to the back, good coverage by Williams.
3-6 at Fs14 4-1-6 C Rettig sacked for loss of 7 yards to the FS21 (SMITH, TEL.). Big blitz by FSU. Backer and a safety. Good team blitz.
4-13 at Fs21 4-1-6 C Rettig pass intercepted by ANDREWS, N. at the FS1, ANDREWS, N. return 35 yards to the FS36, out-of-bounds, PENALTY BC personal foul 14 yards to the 50 yardline, 1ST DOWN FS, 1st and 10, FS ball on FS46. FSU is playing what looks to be 2-Tampa (2 deep safeties with 6th DB Nate Andrew playing the Money/Mike role and dropping deep in the hole). Decent pass pressure, and the receiever is not very open. Desperation and FSU has it covered.
Drive: 11 plays, 43 yards, TOP 04:14
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 01:53.
1-10 at Fs46 22 I WILDER, J. rush for 4 yards to the 50 yardline (S Sylvia). IZ with Wilder.
2-6 at Fs50 22 I WILDER, J. rush for loss of 2 yards to the FS48 (T Gutapfel;B Jones). BC is just flying to the run here, and Hart is beat inside. He played well through three quarters but needs to bring the intensity throughout.
3-8 at Fs48 Timeout Boston College, clock 01:00.
3-8 at Fs48 22 I WINSTON, J. sacked for loss of 7 yards to the FS41 (K Edebali). Incredibly bad decision by Winston to attempt to throw the ball late. He knows he should have thrown it a full two seconds earlier to Abram, didn't, and then tried to make up for it. Freshman. But he has to be more situationally aware. It could have been a pick-six.
4-15 at Fs41 Timeout Boston College, clock 00:45.
4-15 at Fs41 BEATTY, C. punt 39 yards to the BC20, fair catch by S Evans. BC coming for block, good job to get it off.

BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 00:38.
1-10 at Bc20 3-2-6 M Willis rush for 6 yards to the BC26 (TERRELL, N.). FSU playing pass, BC hits a counter draw.
2-4 at Bc26 3-2-6 C Rettig pass complete to D Crimmins for 6 yards to the BC32, 1ST DOWN BC (JONES, C.). Game over
1-10 at Bc32 End of game, clock 00:00.
Drive: 2 plays, 12 yards, TOP 00:38
