Down/Distance Yard Formation Result TN Comment
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 14:54. Nevada does their best to avoid kicking it to Karlos, Joyner makes a nice return anyway.
1-10 at Fs34 WINSTON, J. at QB for Florida State.
1-10 at Fs34 20 Pony FREEMAN, D. rush right for 60 yards to the NEV6, 1ST DOWN FS (MCNEAL, J.), clock 14:41. Winston checks to run to the boundary, and everything goes perfectly running zone. Hart opens up a lane driving his man to the sideline, Carter peels off a double team with Stork and gets to the second level, Freeman follows Wilder through the hole. Wilder makes a great cut, Greene makes a good block on his man, and it's "easy money" for Freeman.
1-G at Nev06 20 Pony FREEMAN, D. rush right for 6 yards to the NEV0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 14:29, PENALTY NEV offside defense declined. Outside zone to right, same personnel, well-blocked again. Just great execution. Quick call.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 24, Nevada 7
Drive: 2 plays, 66 yards, TOP 00:25
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 65 yards to the NEV0, touchback.
NEVADA drive start at 14:29.
1-10 at Nev25 STEWART, Tyler at QB for Nevada.
1-10 at Nev25 4-3 STEWART, Tyler sideline pass complete to ARENDSE, Kolby for 4 yards to the NEV29 (RAMSEY, J.), clock 14:12. Four man rush, Hicks is slow to drop to flat, Ramsey uses his athleticism to beat Hicks to the quick flat pass.
2-6 at Nev29 4-3 STEWART, Tyler SH pass complete to WIMBERLY, B. for loss of 4 yards to the NEV25 (EDWARDS, M.), clock 13:38. Same personnel and alignment. Edwards playing with hand in the dirt, Hicks on field side. Unbalanced set, Hunter rotates down into box on heavy side. Nevada runs misdirection - QB & RB run to heavy side, faking speed option, shovels to crossing slot man going to weak side. Edwards does an excellent job to recognize the play, get off his block, and make the tackle for loss. Good play from 15.
3-10 at Nev25 4-2-5 STEWART, Tyler deep out pass incomplete to WIMBERLY, B., clock 13:08. Pass rushing 4-2-5 package. Jones lines up at DE, Walker comes in for Edwards, 8/97 inside. Field side end/tackle stunt with 7/97 gets 7 into the backfield. Walker speed rushes around the other edge, if he bends under his man he gets home. Pressure forces the ball out, Stewart overthrows an open deep out.
4-10 at Nev25 TENPENNY, Chase punt 45 yards to the FS30, SHAW, K. return 5 yards to the FS35 (MCNEAL, J.;SMITH, Markus). Shaw makes one man miss, gets trapped.
Drive: 3 plays, 0 yards, TOP 01:34
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 12:55.
1-10 at Fs35 12 bunch WILLIAMS, K. rush right for 65 yards to the NEV0, 1ST DOWN FS, TOUCHDOWN, clock 12:47. Toss sweep from left hash to field side, and it's simply a thing of beauty. Hart pulls and makes an excellent cut block in the open field (Jimbo talked about the difficulty of this in Monday presser), Abram kicked out and sealed his man, KB made a good block downfield, and it's all green grass for speedster Karlos Williams. One touch, 65 yards, one touchdown. Can't script it any better. Dude is just unbelievably fast.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 31, Nevada 7
Drive: 1 plays, 65 yards, TOP 00:12
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 65 yards to the NEV0, MITCHELL, E. return 12 yards to the NEV12 (RAMSEY, J.). You can see just how fast 13 is on this. Gets down there quickly, gets off a block, makes a play to pin Nevada deep. Ramsey made a great play.
NEVADA drive start at 12:43.
1-10 at Nev12 4-3 SOLOMON, Chris rush over left guard for 1 yard to the NEV13 (GOLDMAN, E.), clock 12:36. Nevada comes out with unbalanced set to field. Brooks rotates into box. Read option, give to back. Goldman splits a double team and brings down the runner with some assistance by Telvin. Jernigan's hat comes off again. Need to get better straps on 8's lid.
2-9 at Nev13 3-4 SOLOMON, Chris rush right for 4 yards to the NEV17 (BROOKS, T.), clock 12:13. Hicks as Sam backer goes to flats, Nevada blocks play to left. Joyner left unblocked in slot, and runs himself out of the play where he could have had a good TFL. Jones slow to react to run to right, but Brooks speeds down and cleans it up. Great play in run support from Brooks.
3-5 at Nev17 3-2-6 STEWART, Tyler sideline pass incomplete to BRADLEY, Aaron (Williams, P.J.), clock 11:36. Pass rushing package. 3 down linemen, 7 and 22 both on edges. 7 drops into coverage, Joyner blitzes from slot on opposite side. Edwards bull rushes a tackle out of the play, but loses his balance before getting home. PJ Williams has excellent coverage on the sideline pass. Just blanketed Bradley
4-5 at Nev17 TENPENNY, Chase punt 46 yards to the FS37, SHAW, K. return 12 yards to the FS49 (DOBRICH, Jordan;DE KONING, B.), PENALTY FS illegal block (THOMAS, M.) 10 yards to the FS39, 1st and 10, FS ball on FS39. Shaw gets some tough yards, gets brought back by a clear block in the back call on Thomas.
Drive: 3 plays, 5 yards, TOP 01:20
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 11:23.
1-10 at Fs39 11 pistol WINSTON, J. middle pass complete to O'LEARY, N. for 7 yards to the FS46 (LYONS, Matthew;BERTRANDO, Alex), clock 11:01. Curl over the middle. Easy yards. Gets the obligatory Nicklaus reference.
2-3 at Fs46 11 under center WILDER, J. rush over right guard for 24 yards to the NEV30, 1ST DOWN FS (MITCHELL, E.;KEETON, Bryson), clock 10:42. Outside zone to left, poorly played by Nevada backers, who make it easy for 35 and 51 to seal the backside. Wilder isn't touched for 20 yards, as he ran straight ahead. Would like to see better effort from KB here. Better effort down the right side, may have gone for more. Can't always expect a block to be made 20 yards downfield, though.
1-10 at Nev30 Timeout Florida State, clock 10:25.
1-10 at Nev30 11 gun tight WINSTON, J. middle pass complete to BENJAMIN, K. for 29 yards to the NEV1, 1ST DOWN FS (BERTRANDO, Alex), clock 10:14. 2x2 "tight" gun formation. 7 man protection off play action. Looks like a shot play to beat the Tampa 2. Greene/Benjamin do a high-low stretch over middle of the field. Benjamin wide open
1-G at Nev01 11 gun WILDER, J. rush up middle for 1 yard to the NEV0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 10:06. Packaged zone/bubble play. Shaw covered in the slot, Wilder gets it in easy.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good.
Florida State 38, Nevada 7
Drive: 4 plays, 61 yards, TOP 01:22
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 64 yards to the NEV1, WESTBROOKS, N. return 28 yards to the NEV29 (THOMAS, M.). Aguayo places it on the 1, well blocked return from Nevada, Thomas gets a nice tackle in space.
NEVADA drive start at 10:01.
1-10 at Nev29 3-3-5 SOLOMON, Chris rush over left guard for 9 yards to the NEV38 (SMITH, TEL.), clock 09:40. Joyner shoots into backfield, prompting the give on the read-option. Terrance Smith gets trapped inside, Telvin has to make a play in pursuit. Walker and Terr. Smith both have wrong arm positioning, Walker loses leverage and gets pancaked. Freshman moment.
2-1 at Nev38 4-3 SOLOMON, Chris rush up middle for 2 yards to the NEV40, 1ST DOWN NEV (WALKER, D.;JERNIGAN, T.), clock 09:10. This is a "4-3", but still functioning as a 5-2 with 5 men on the line of scrimmage. Walker reads the play correctly, and gets into the backfield. Isn't able to wrap up cleanly, Solomon falls forward for the first down.
1-10 at Nev40 4-2-5 STEWART, Tyler slant pass incomplete to ARENDSE, Kolby (CASHER, C.), clock 08:52. Five man rush with Joyner blitzing from the slot. Nevada slides protection left and leaves a back to block Casher. Casher recognizes the pass, jumps up and blocks it. Great play from 21. Wasn't a smart throw to begin with - receiver blanketed with two defenders.
2-10 at Nev40 4-2-5 STEWART, Tyler sideline pass complete to TURNER, Richy for 12 yards to the FS48, 1ST DOWN NEV, out-of-bounds, clock 08:46. Jalen Ramsey gets taken out of the play with a rub route, receiver comes back and gets the sideline play. This is the sort of bust I don't mind seeing. He followed #2 vertical. Would rather have underneath/intermediate busts than deep busts. These are the sort of busts you can expect from some of the newer pattern matching rules. Hopefully not many deep.
1-10 at Fs48 4-2-5 SOLOMON, Chris rush over right guard for 4 yards to the FS44 (JOYNER, L.;SMITH, TERR.), clock 08:12. Joyner into backfield, so QB gives. McAllister does an excellent job getting off his block and penetrating, but whiffs on a tackle in the backfield. Jernigan also gets off his man, stays back at LOS. Walker misses tackle at LOS, Joyner and Telvin clean it up downfield. Need to be a little cleaner making tackles near/behind the LOS.
2-6 at Fs44 3-3-5 STEWART, Tyler sideline pass complete to BRADLEY, Aaron for 10 yards to the FS34, 1ST DOWN NEV, out-of-bounds, clock 07:38. 5 man rush, Joyner and TerrSmith blitz. Casher drops into coverage. Stewart makes a great back shoulder throw. Good throw and catch. Tough for Ramsey to defend
1-10 at Fs34 4-2-5 SOLOMON, Chris rush up middle for no gain to the FS34 (JERNIGAN, T.), clock 07:06. Timmy Jernigan is just a grown man. Tosses his blocker aside and there's nowhere for the RB to go.
2-10 at Fs34 4-2-5 STEWART, Tyler MR pass intercepted by HUNTER, T. at the FS28, HUNTER, T. return 27 yards to the NEV45 (WIMBERLY, B.;BRADLEY, Aaron). Stewart just didn't see this. Looked like Hunter's appearance shocked Stewart just as much as the throw shocked Hunter. Heads up play to reach back and snag the pick. Hunter drops into the hook zone as a buzz defender. Ball comes to him.
Drive: 8 plays, 37 yards, TOP 03:24
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 06:37.
1-10 at Nev45 11 under center WINSTON, J. deep out pass complete to SHAW, K. for 22 yards to the NEV23, 1ST DOWN FS, out-of-bounds, clock 06:31. O'Leary motions to wing, runs play action. Matias defender gets turned around, but Winston slides quickly to the left and makes the throw under pressure on the deep crosser to Shaw. Great feel from Winston, makes a great throw off balance.
1-10 at Nev23 11 under center WILLIAMS, K. rush right for loss of 3 yards to the NEV26 (HEKKING, Brock), clock 06:00. O'Leary motions to right, outside zone to right. Backside defender of the mullet variety comes unblocked. Not very easy to get that angle even with the athletic Williams. Maybe somebody should be cutting/sealing the backside, or the mesh should happen at a wider point/angle. Needs some adjustment here.
2-13 at Nev26 11 pistol WINSTON, J. middle pass complete to O'LEARY, N. for 9 yards to the NEV17 (DE KONING, B.), clock 05:30. Quick hitch in the middle. O'Leary does a nice job finding a hole in the underneath zones, as usual. Easy dump off and easy yards.
3-4 at Nev17 11 gun WINSTON, J. MR pass complete to GREENE, R. for 7 yards to the NEV10, 1ST DOWN FS (MITCHELL, E.), clock 05:00. 5 man blitz, miscommunication between Matias and Erving lets an end come free. Jameis slides forward to avoid him and throws a jumping pass to a spot only Rashad Greene could get to. Really nice improvisation from Jameis here. Just a natural.
1-G at Nev10 11 under center WINSTON, J. rush right for 10 yards to the NEV0, TOUCHDOWN, clock 04:41. Hart comes off for Lovelady for a play. O'Leary motions to field side forcing Nevada to shift. Play action naked rollout, Jameis looks to pass it until he crosses the line of scrimmage and walks into the end zone.
AGUAYO, R. kick attempt good. Efficient drive all around, save for one TFL that may be more scheme related than anything else.
Florida State 45, Nevada 7
Drive: 5 plays, 45 yards, TOP 01:56
AGUAYO, R. kickoff 30 yards to the NEV35, out-of-bounds, NEV ball on NEV35. Aguayo kicks himself as soon as he hits the ball. Just a bad kick.
NEVADA drive start at 04:41.
1-10 at Nev35 4-2-5 SOLOMON, Chris rush up middle for 1 yard to the NEV36 (MCDANIEL, J.), clock 04:18. Nevada runs power, McDaniel gets off his block and makes a play in the backfield.
2-9 at Nev36 4-2-5 STEWART, Tyler sideline pass complete to WIMBERLY, B. for 4 yards to the NEV40, out-of-bounds (JOYNER, L.), clock 03:55. Nevada motions to unbalanced set, Hunter rotates into box on strong side. 4 man rush, Stewart throws an out to a 6'3 Wimberly over 5'8 Joyner. Joyner just gets outsized on a good pitch and catch.
3-5 at Nev40 3-2-6 STEWART, Tyler middle pass incomplete (HUNTER, T.), clock 03:24. Pass rushing set. Keelin Smith makes appearance as sixth DB. 4 man rush with Jones blitzing and Hunter coming as the 5th on a delayed blitz. Nevada slid protection to left, leaving a back on Christian Jones and nobody on Hunter. Hunter flies in and pulverizes the QB. Excellent closing speed from Hunter.
4-5 at Nev40 TENPENNY, Chase punt 54 yards to the FS6, SHAW, K. return 16 yards to the FS22 (SMITH, Markus). Nice return. Shaw doesn't do anything special here, but he doesn't drop the ball, so there's that.
Drive: 3 plays, 5 yards, TOP 01:29
