Down/Distance Yard Formation Result TN Comment
2-8 at Fs14 34 SOLOMON, Chris rush left for 1 yard to the FS13 (EDWARDS, M.), clock 14:41. The down linemen do a great job of getting penetration while staying in their gaps against power here.
3-7 at Fs13 425 COMBS, Devin TR pass incomplete to WIMBERLY, B., clock 14:17. Big height advantage for the receiver over Darby and Nevada throws a fade. It's just pure dumb luck for FSU that the ball bounces off the receivers chest plate.
4-7 at Fs13 TENPENNY, Chase rush up middle for 2 yards to the FS11 (RAMSEY, J.). FSU faked a block attempt, then Jones and Brooks drop out just before the snap. Jalen Ramsey is actually unblocked and it looks like they may have been trying to option him, but the holder keeps it and Ramsey makes the tackle.
Drive: 13 plays, 64 yards, TOP 07:02 Just too many mental errors. Drive extending penalties. This drive took up half the first quarter by itself.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 14:12.
1-10 at Fs11 21 pistol WILDER, J. rush right for 2 yards to the FS13 (HEKKING, Brock), clock 13:48. Oleary fails miserably at his cut off block of the DE, allowing Mullet Man to trip up Wilder. This play would have been a big gain otherwise.
2-8 at Fs13 11 gun WINSTON, J. post pass intercepted by KEETON, Bryson at the FS38, KEETON, Bryson return 10 yards to the FS28 (O'LEARY, N.). Nevada is in a Tampa 2 defense. The Corner route to O'Leary on the other side of the field is probably the best choice, but the seam route is not wrong. Just a poor throw.
Drive: 2 plays, 2 yards, TOP 00:39
NEVADA drive start at 13:33.
1-10 at Fs28 34 SOLOMON, Chris rush over right tackle for 13 yards to the FS15, 1ST DOWN NEV (BROOKS, T.), clock 13:25. This is the exact same counter-trey play they hit for a big gain on the previous drive. This time it is Dan Hicks who gets fooled by the right tackle dropping into a pass block stance and once again the linebackers are flat footed and pushed out of the way by the lead blockers.
1-10 at Fs15 52 SOLOMON, Chris rush left for loss of 2 yards to the FS17 (MCDANIEL, J.), clock 12:44. This is just a tremendous play by McDaniel as he beats the guard off the ball and chases the back down by the jersey. I assumed it was Jernigan until the number became clear.
2-12 at Fs17 34 SOLOMON, Chris rush over right guard for 6 yards to the FS11 (MCDANIEL, J.), clock 12:04. Another interesting scheme from Nevada as they run power to the weak side of the formation. Telvin Smith tries to run around blockers and creates a lane for the back to run through.
3-6 at Fs11 52 COMBS, Devin sideline pass complete to WIMBERLY, B. for 11 yards to the FS0, 1ST DOWN NEV, TOUCHDOWN, clock 11:31. Ramsey needs to align closer to the receiver and not allow him a free release.
Injured player for FSU is #22-Smith. Walks off the field.
ZUZO, Brent kick attempt good.
Nevada 7, Florida State 3
Drive: 4 plays, 28 yards, TOP 02:08
ZUZO, Brent kickoff 65 yards to the FS0, JOYNER, L. return 26 yards to the FS26 (FORREST II, A.).
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 11:25.
1-10 at Fs26 21 WINSTON, J. sacked for loss of 11 yards to the FS15 (JONES, Lenny), clock 11:08. Hart, Cam Eving and Carter all get beaten. Completely unacceptable.
2-21 at Fs15 10 gun FREEMAN, D. rush over left tackle for no gain to the FS15 (YATES, Rykeem;JONES, Lenny), clock 10:30. Cam Erving gets beaten inside on a zone play.
3-21 at Fs15 10 gun FREEMAN, D. rush right for 5 yards to the FS20 (MCNEAL, J.), clock 09:51. Pretty sure Jimbo doesn't have confidence in the OL at this particular instant and just wants to regroup without another turnover.
4-16 at Fs20 BEATTY, C. punt 53 yards to the NEV27, downed.
Drive: 3 plays, minus 6 yards, TOP 02:15
NEVADA drive start at 09:10.
1-10 at Nev27 5-2 LYTLE, Nate rush over left end for 1 yard to the NEV28 (EDWARDS, M.;JERNIGAN, T.), clock 08:52. Very nice run fits here. Dan Hicks is held egriegously.
2-9 at Nev28 425 LYTLE, Nate rush up middle for 7 yards to the NEV35 (Williams, P.J.;JOYNER, L.), clock 08:20. Inverted veer. Timmy Jernigan tries to go around a block and vacates his gap. Jones gets sealed.
3-2 at Nev35 425 COMBS, Devin sacked for loss of 5 yards to the NEV30 (HICKS, D.), PENALTY FS personal foul (JERNIGAN, T.) 15 yards to the 50 yardline, 1ST DOWN NEV, NO PLAY, clock 07:52. Jernigan gets his helmet ripped off and FSU gets a 15 yard penalty. The offensive linemen has both arms around Timmy's helmet and pulls up.
#8 for FSU continued the play without a helmet. Personal foul.
1-10 at Nev50 5-2 LYTLE, Nate rush over left guard for 2 yards to the FS48 (GOLDMAN, E.;MCALLISTER, D.), clock 07:04. Power to the weakside again. Telvin stays in his gap and gets off the block to make the tackle.
2-8 at Fs48 5-2 COMBS, Devin sideline pass incomplete to WIMBERLY, B. (HUNTER, T.), clock 06:46. Playaction rollout. Great break on the ball by Tyler Hunter.
3-8 at Fs48 425 COMBS, Devin slant pass complete to WIMBERLY, B. for 7 yards to the FS41, clock 06:31. Little rub action from Nevada creates space against main coverage.
4-1 at Fs41 Timeout Nevada, clock 06:01.
4-1 at Fs41 TENPENNY, Chase punt 33 yards to the FS8, fair catch by SHAW, K..
Drive: 5 plays, 32 yards, TOP 03:16
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 05:54.
1-10 at Fs08 11 gun WINSTON, J. WS pass complete to SHAW, K. for 13 yards to the FS21, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds (GARRETT, C.), clock 05:46. This is a package play, outside zone with a bubble screen. If the linebacker walks out over the slot and the other 2 adjust to be centered, the QB will hand off to the back. If the linebacker does not split out, you've got 1 defender over 2 receivers and throw the bubble screen. That's what occurs in this case and due to a great block by Kelvin, it's a big gainer.
1-10 at Fs21 11 gun WINSTON, J. WS pass complete to SHAW, K. for 8 yards to the FS29, out-of-bounds (GARRETT, C.), clock 05:31. Same formation, same defense, same play, same result.
2-2 at Fs29 11 gun WILDER, J. rush over right end for 13 yards to the FS42, 1ST DOWN FS (GARRETT, C.;FAVORS, Evan). Same formation, same play, but this time Nevada walks down a defender over the slot so the QB hands off to the back.
1-10 at Fs42 11 gun WILDER, J. rush up middle for 3 yards to the FS45 (BERTRANDO, Alex;REYNOSO, Jack), PENALTY NEV personal foul (GARRETT, C.) 15 yards to the NEV40, 1ST DOWN FS, clock 04:44. Really dumb penalty by the Nevada defender, who flips onto the pile well after Wilder is down.
1-10 at Nev40 20 gun WINSTON, J. MR pass complete to WILDER, J. for 9 yards to the NEV31 (GARRETT, C.;REYNOSO, Jack), clock 04:10. A quick decision means Wilder gets the ball with some room to operate. FSU was trying to take a downfield shot but it was covered.
2-1 at Nev31 11 gun FREEMAN, D. rush right for 7 yards to the NEV24, 1ST DOWN FS (DOBRICH, Jordan;BERTRANDO, Alex), clock 03:49. Same play they ran 3 straight times to open the drive. The bubble is covered so give to the back.
1-10 at Nev24 11 gun WINSTON, J. flag pass complete to SHAW, K. for 24 yards to the NEV0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 03:21. Playaction out of the same look they've been using all drive. Typical FSU smash route vs. a 2 deep look. The throw is amazing. 40 yards in the air, falling backwards and drops it right in the bucket. Great job by Kenny Shaw to fight through the defender grabbing his facemask on the break.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 10, Nevada 7
On the touchdown, there was a personal foul on #24 for Nevada.
That penalty will be marked off on the ensuing kickoff.
1-G at Fs35 PENALTY NEV personal foul (GARRETT, C.) 15 yards to the 50 yardline.
Drive: 7 plays, 92 yards, TOP 02:33
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 50 yards to the NEV0, touchback.
NEVADA drive start at 03:21.
1-10 at Nev25 PENALTY NEV delay of game (COMBS, Devin) 5 yards to the NEV20, clock 03:21. Nevada has come extremely close to not getting the snap off a few times in this game and it finally bites them.
1-15 at Nev20 425 SOLOMON, Chris rush left for no gain to the NEV20 (HICKS, D.), clock 02:57. Nowhere to run inside and Hicks makes a nice play to get off his block and make the tackle.
2-15 at Nev20 5-2 SOLOMON, Chris rush over left end for 4 yards to the NEV24 (HICKS, D.;SMITH, TERR.), clock 02:24. Terrance Smith is a little late into the hole, allowing positive yardage on the run.
3-11 at Nev24 425 SOLOMON, Chris rush over right tackle for 6 yards to the NEV30 (MCALLISTER, D.;JOYNER, L.). Christian Jones runs himself out of the play going after the quarterback.
4-5 at Nev30 Timeout Florida State, clock 01:59.
4-5 at Nev30 TENPENNY, Chase punt 39 yards to the FS31, SHAW, K. return 13 yards to the FS44 (WILSON, Tyler;DOBRICH, Jordan).
Drive: 3 plays, 5 yards, TOP 01:31
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 01:50.
1-10 at Fs44 11 gun WINSTON, J. sideline pass complete to SHAW, K. for 5 yards to the FS49 (SMITH, Markus), clock 01:38. Devonta Freeman is all alone in the flat on the far side. Winston puts the hitch up high and Shaw takes a shot to the ribs as a result. Ball should gone to Wilder on the other side.
2-5 at Fs49 10 gun WINSTON, J. crossing pass complete to BENJAMIN, K. for 8 yards to the NEV43, 1ST DOWN FS (MITCHELL, E.), clock 01:14. Under route vs. press man coverage. The ball is actually quite a bit behind Benjamin, who makes a great catch.
1-10 at Nev43 10 gun WINSTON, J. deep out pass complete to GREEN, C. for 19 yards to the NEV24, 1ST DOWN FS (KEETON, Bryson), clock 00:50. Jesus Wilson has no idea where to line up and with the clock running and no timeouts, Jimbo has a minor fit. Great throw. Getting the bench route all the way to the opposite sideline in front of the safety takes a ton of velocity.
1-10 at Nev24 10 gun WINSTON, J. deep pass complete to GREENE, R. for 24 yards to the NEV0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 00:38. Rashad Greene is covered on this play. He is not remotely open. Winston puts it where only his guy can get it and Greene makes an absurd play. These last two plays are NFL throws. Good blitz pickup
Official Review: Ruling on the field is a touchdown.
Official Review: Ruling on the field stands. FSU Touchdown.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 17, Nevada 7
Drive: 4 plays, 56 yards, TOP 01:16 Two excellent drives. The common denominator: FSU's wide receivers are making plays for their quarterback and performing at an extremely high level.
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 65 yards to the NEV0, MITCHELL, E. return 15 yards to the NEV15 (ELIGWE, U.).
1-10 at Nev15 NEVADA drive start at 00:34.
1-10 at Nev15 TEAM rush for loss of 1 yard to the NEV14.
