Down/Distance Formation Result Comment
1-10-FSU26 11 pistol (14:54) Jameis Winston passed to Kenny Shaw for 42 yards. Play action off stretch, Jameis fakes to wrong side, sucks both Pitt LBs and two DBs in anyway. Shaw makes 3 men miss in open field
1-10-PITT32 (14:34) Devonta Freeman rushed for 5 yards. FSU was penalized 10 yards.
1-15-PITT37 11 gun (14:05) Jameis Winston passed to Devonta Freeman for 9 yards. Screen to Freeman on field side, nearly blown up early with missed block from Hart, who gives himself an angry tap on the head. Stork tries to cut a defender a hair early, but is still effective. May have been in Carter's way, and if Carter can get on a man, Freeman may have had space to get the 1st down.
2-6-PITT28 11 gun (13:32) Devonta Freeman rushed for 20 yards. Appears to be a packaged power run/bubble screen play. Power run to boundary, Freeman bounces it over to field. Makes a good cut and outruns a handful of Pitt defenders, but would've scored had he cut it even farther outside and used Jameis as a "pick"
1-0-PITT8 11 pistol (13:00) Devonta Freeman rushed for no gain. Outside zone to boundary, several Pitt defenders able to get off their blocks before play develops. Donald spins off Matias, an LB dodges a cut from 75, and a DB comes up to stop Freeman at LOS
2-0-PITT8 21 pistol (12:16) Jameis Winston rushed for 2 yards. Triple option from offset pistol. OZ action to run side (left). Winston keeps, then keeps again on a clear pitch read. Benjamin pancaked his man in the area Wilder could've run to
3-0-PITT6 11 pistol (11:34) Jameis Winston lost 2 yards. Winston not able to find anyone open in compressed area, can't find a clean running lane out of the backfield. Probably needs to be thrown away.
4-0-PITT8 (11:20) PITT was penalized 4 yards.
4-0-PITT4 (15:00) Roberto Aguayo made a field goal of 22 yards.
FSU 31   PITT 10,   Plays: 8   Yards: 70   Possession: 3:40.
(11:08) Roberto Aguayo kicked the ball for 60 yards. Tyler Boyd returned the kick for 21 yards.
1-10-PITT26 4-3 (11:02) James Conner rushed for 4 yards. Inside zone, center and backside guard combo NLS, fullback seals Edwards as BST gets to second level. Well blocked run
2-6-PITT30 3-4 (10:40) Tom Savage passed to Jaymar Parrish for 7 yards. Same personnel as previous play for FSU with Edwards standing up. Pitt slides left, back blocks Hicks successfully, but Savage scrambles out of clean pocket and finds his man in flats
1-10-PITT37 3-4 (9:55) Tom Savage passed to Devin Street for 15 yards. Telvin sucked in by play action. Pass may not have been there had he dropped back
1-10-FSU48 4-2-5 (9:20) James Conner rushed for 1 yard. Pitt runs power towards numbers advantage to field side. Safety to unbalanced side should rotate down, instead of the other. Joyner makes a good play to get off his block and get the stop
2-9-FSU47 3-4 (8:56) Tyler Boyd rushed for 16 yards. Jet sweep to unbalanced side. NLS/Hicks stunt puts NLS in backfield, where he doesn't notice Boyd go by him. Hunter drops to correct side, but gets manhandled in run support, Boyd makes Telvin miss in open space, and it's easy yards from there. Telvin slipped here, may have been impact of earlier rain.
1-10-FSU31 3-3-5 (8:25) James Conner rushed for 3 yards. Toss to unbalanced side. Wrong safety rotates down again. Edwards does well to get off his block and bring back down from behind
2-7-FSU28 3-4 (7:42) Tom Savage rushed for 8 yards. Familiar play for FSU fans. Play action naked bootleg, fullback goes into flat, Telvin forced to choose between covering FB or going after QB. Stays back, Savage makes smart play for first down
1-10-FSU20 (7:02) PITT was penalized 5 yards.
1-15-FSU25 4-2-5 (6:37) Lamarcus Joyner sacked Tom Savage for a loss of 13 yards. Well disgused nickel blitz from Joyner. Left tackle doesn't even see him. Unimpeded run at QB, closing speed gets him there before Savage can throw away. Awesome closing speed.
2-28-FSU38 4-2-5 (5:54) Tom Savage passed to Isaac Bennett for a loss of 1 yard. Jones lines up in a 3-point stance, excellent speed rush, gets around LT, lays a huge hit on Savage as he checks down to flat. Telvin makes good play in space.
3-29-FSU39 4-2-5 (5:10) Tom Savage passed to Tyler Boyd for 17 yards. Jones lines up at end again, almost gets home again. Savage gets it off, good pitch and catch. Fortunate to have elbow touch an inch in bounds.
4-12-FSU22 (4:43) Chris Blewitt made a field goal of 39 yards.
FSU 31   PITT 13,   Plays: 10   Yards: 47   Possession: 06:25.
(4:43) Chris Blewitt kicked the ball for 65 yards. Touchback
1-10-FSU25 21 offset I (4:43) James Wilder rushed for 7 yards. Very well blocked zone run. Pitt defender able to get a hand on Wilder's ankle. Referee would have acted as 12th man and helped get a few more yards
2-3-FSU32 21 pistol (4:11) Jameis Winston rushed for 10 yards. Zone read triple option from offset pistol. Winston keeps, correctly does not pitch. Ball pulled loose, falls out of bounds. Everything's coming up Jameis.
1-10-FSU42 21 offset I (3:36) Jameis Winston passed to Kelvin Benjamin for 28 yards. Play action, NOL & KB run deep corner and big over route. KB meets the turf monster.
1-10-PITT30 21 offset I (3:12) James Wilder rushed for 15 yards. Well blocked outside zone. Wilder reads it well and gets a few extra yards shedding tacklers
1-10-PITT15 21 offset I (2:50) James Wilder rushed for 2 yards. Donald ties up Carter and Hart. Need to be able to get off this block and get to second level. Wilder bounces off the LB uncovered by double team of Donald, but can't get anywhere.
2-8-PITT13 (2:11) FSU was penalized 5 yards.
2-13-PITT18 11 gun (2:05) Devonta Freeman rushed for 7 yards. Tackle trap, Freeman makes a good cut in close quarters to get the yards
3-6-PITT11 11 pistol (1:23) Jameis Winston passed incomplete to Rashad Greene. Pitt sends six, wanted slant on backside, couldn't with pressure. Not great blitz pickup. Winston probably should've thrown this one away.
4-6-PITT11 (1:12) Roberto Aguayo made a field goal of 28 yards.
FSU 34   PITT 13,   Plays: 7   Yards: 59   Possession: 03:31.

1-10-PITT23 3-4 (1:06) James Conner lost 2 yards. Pitt fakes jet, runs inside zone. Jernigan moves the center out of his way. In the backfield before the center realizes what happened, makes the stop.
2-12-PITT21 4-2-5 (0:24) Tom Savage passed incomplete to Isaac Bennett. Savage makes an excellent throw on the run. Chased out of the pocket, places it in a basket to a back who turns up field and is being trailed by Terrance Smith. Should've been caught for a first down.
3-12-PITT21 4-2-5 (0:16) Tom Savage passed incomplete to Devin Street. Jones in 3 point stance again for passing down. End and tackle stunts on both sides. Jones, Jernigan and McAllister all get past to pressure Savage, who puts a ball behind Devin Street. Terrence Brooks drops another interception. Great defense all around.
4-12-PITT21 (0:09) Matt Yoklic punted for 54 yards. Kenny Shaw returned a punt for 26 yards. Shaw makes one man miss early and uses his blocks well to get a good return.
