Every week we break down the result of the previous game. Who really played well for the Seminoles against Pitt? Read to find out.

Note: there are certain schematic and tendency things we do not discuss in these reviews out of respect for our sources, the school and coaching staff.

Down/Distance Formation Result Comment
1-10-PITT49 21 Gun (15:00) Jameis Winston passed to Chad Abram for 5 yards. Reuben Carter gets beat badly by Pitt's stud DT #97. Winston has no time to set his feet but is able to get a dangerous pass off to Abrams in the flats. Abrams shows nice elusiveness to break a few tackles for a positive gain, Fisher will probably use this play as a teaching moment for JW. Just take the sack. On his coaching show, Jimbo Fisher said that FSU had a deep shot play called here, and that they didn't have time for it to develop.
2-5-PITT44 21 offset I (14:20) James Wilder lost 1 yard. Inside zone Wilder misses the cutback lane to the left side where Stork has sealed the backer and Erving and Matias were handling their guys. Instead he cuts it outside. Greene and Abrams cant handle their guys, results in a 1 yard loss. He also re-aggravates his shoulder injury and calls it quits.
3-6-PITT45 11 Gun (13:50) Jameis Winston passed to Rashad Greene for 11 yards. Pitt shows pressure and then backs off, actually has a backer acting as a spy on JW. Houston. Greene crosses the face of CB on the slant, Speed rush almost gets him from the back side but Jameis stands tall and hits him in stride for the easy first down pickup.
1-10-PITT39 11 (13:05) Devonta Freeman rushed for 8 yards OZ. Bobby Hart does a great job reaching the DE and O'Leary does a decent job peeling back to seal the backer. Freeman gets outside and cuts it up nicely.
2-2-PITT26 11 Pistol (12:32) Jameis Winston passed to Christian Green for no gain. Welp. Bubble to Christian Green. I rewtached it a few times to see if I could validate Jimbo's claim that KB was telling CG the play. It appears he was yelling someting at him. Either way poor effort from KB gets CG blown up. Only real blemish on KBs night.
3-2-PITT26 11 Gun (11:48) Jameis Winston passed to Nick O'Leary for 11 yards. Pitt shows blitz and the backs off. Matias handles #97 easily while Carter and Stork double #50. Erving does just enough slow down the speed rush and gets beat but recovers to push his guy upfield, JW steps up in the pocket to help his OT's out. Pitt jumps Greene on the curl and and JW hits O'leary on the TE option route. Another perfectly placed ball thrown on time by JW.
1-10-PITT15 21 Pistol (11:15) Devonta Freeman rushed for 4 yards. IZ. Pitt plays this pretty well. Carter gets pushed down the line of scrimmage but Stork and Matias are able to get enough push for a nice 1st down gain.
2-6-PITT11 (10:36) FSU was penalized 5 yards. (illegal formation)
2-11-PITT16 21 offset I (10:07) Chad Abram rushed for 6 yards. FB dive. Excellent block by Stork, Matias locks up with #97 and Carter gets in the way just enough. Smashmouth with ol' "Neckroll" up the gut.
3-5-PITT10 21 Gun (9:32) Touchdown. Jameis Winston passed to Nick O'Leary for 10 yards. Excellent playaction to Devonta sucks both of Pitts LB's in, O'leary is wide open on the option route. "Easy Money"
FSU 41   PITT 13,   Plays: 9   Yards: 44   Possession: 05:37. Hell of a backbreaking drive by the FSU offense sends this baby to garbage time.
