Florida State football film review: Boston College 3rd quarter

Full video breakdown of FSU's 3rd quarter v. BC, found only at Tomahawk Nation.

Every week we break down the result of the previous Florida State game. Who really played well for the Seminoles against Boston College? Which players played poorly? Where did the coaches do well, and when did they screw up?

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.

For other quarters, visit the film review section (All quarters up by Wednesday evening).

Aguayo, R. kickoff 65 yards to the BC0, touchback.
BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 15:00.
1-10 at Bc25 425 Outlow,M rush for 12 yards to the BC37 (Marshall, T.), PENALTY BC holding 10 yards to the BC15, NO PLAY. Counter, Nnadi is comically held, opening up a lane, called back.
1-20 at Bc15 425 Outlow,M rush for 6 yards to the BC21 (LawrenceStample). Trips wide to field for BC, sprint draw to boundary. Good play call, Northrup slow to realize it isn't pass, easy six yards for BC.
2-14 at Bc21 425 Wade,D pass complete to Wolford,B for 20 yards to the BC41, 1ST DOWN BC (White, M.). PA counter rollout, Marquez gets caught looking in the backfield. Fullback gets past him and he realizes it quickly and makes a tackle in pursuit.
1-10 at Bc41 425 Outlow,M rush for 1 yard to the BC42 (Walker, D.). Jet action to field, inside zone read. Nnadi holds up well at point, Walker left unblocked does a good job reading play in backfield and bringing down Outlow.
2-9 at Bc42 425 Alston,S rush for 3 yards to the BC45 (Pugh, J.). Called jet sweep to field, Marshall manages to eat two blocks, leaving Andrews and Pugh free to force the runner to the edge, where he doesn't have the speed to outrun them.
3-6 at Bc45 425 Outlow,M rush for 4 yards to the BC49, out-of-bounds (Smith, T.). Shovel option, looks like he should have tossed the shovel here. He doesn't, Sweat forces him to pitch, and Smith tackles him out of bounds well short of the first down marker.
4-2 at Bc49 Howell,A punt 51 yards to the FS0, touchback.
Drive: 5 plays, 24 yards, TOP 03:11 Good drive here by the defense. One mistake from Quez, but they do a good job getting themselves aligned and not getting tricked by a quicker tempo drive from BC than their normal pace.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 11:49.
1-10 at Fs20 21 Singleback Golson, E. pass complete to Wilson, J. for 14 yards to the FS34, 1ST DOWN FS (Simmons,J). PA Smash, Golson does a good job of hitting Bobo on the corner. Well run route, good throw.
1-10 at Fs34 21 Bunch Cook, D. rush for 2 yards to the FS36 (Abdesmad,M). Bunch formation to field, T block sweep to field. Izzo gets BLOWN UP and his man makes the play. Really poor from Izzo, but may be an injury concern there.
2-8 at Fs36 11 Gun Whitfield, K. rush for 4 yards to the FS40 (Yiadom,I). Jet sweep to field, missed cut by Dalvin and poor block from Bobo keep this from going much of anywhere. Shame, it was a good call.
3-4 at Fs40 10 Gun Golson, E. pass incomplete to Rudolph, T., dropped pass. Snag concept to field, poor throw from Golson, but Rudolph has to do a better job hauling it in. Poor ball placement would've kept it from going anywhere.
4-4 at Fs40 Beatty, C. punt 49 yards to the BC11, Alston,S return 4 yards to the BC15 (Marshall, T.). Great punt and good coverage.
Drive: 4 plays, 20 yards, TOP 02:10 Just sloppy execution on this drive. All around.
BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 09:39.
1-10 at Bc15 425 Willis,M rush for 3 yards to the BC18 (Christmas, D.). Mitchell splits a double team and slows up Willis on inside zone, and Christmas gets off the block reasonably quickly to bring him down. Good DT play here.
2-7 at Bc18 425 Wade,D pass incomplete to Callinan,C (Christmas, D.). PA power, bit of a miscommunication here leavesBC player open in the seam, but Christmas does an excellent job getting his hands up and batting it at the line.
3-7 at Bc18 416 Wade,D pass incomplete to Swigert,B. Sail concept to boundary from BC, Smith comes on a blitz and pressures Wade into throwing to a well covered man. Good pressure here.
4-7 at Bc18 Howell,A punt 57 yards to the FS25, Wilson, J. return 3 yards to the FS28 (Johnson,J). Long punt, Bobo runs backwards a bit too much here - ball carried him that way though.
Drive: 3 plays, 3 yards, TOP 01:01 Good defense on this drive.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 08:38.
1-10 at Fs28 10 Gun Pender, M. rush for no gain to the FS28 (Wujciak,C;Landry,H). Zone read, Pender zone run to boundary. Martinez isn't able to reach and keep leverage here, BC DT does a good job grabbing some shirt and bringing him down. Cook would probably have run through this and got a few yards here.
2-10 at Fs28 10 Gun Golson, E. pass complete to Wilson, J. for 8 yards to the FS36 (Mcclary,G). Slants, quick throw and read and some easy quick game yards here.
3-2 at Fs36 11 Singleback Golson, E. pass incomplete to Izzo, R., QB hurry by Landry,H. PA and Golson is flushed out of the pocket. Didn't have a chance to get the corner. Poor throw by him here, he should have had Izzo on the scramble. Slips out of his hands a bit there.
4-2 at Fs36 Beatty, C. punt 52 yards to the BC12, fair catch by Alston,S. Fantastic punt, again.
Drive: 3 plays, 8 yards, TOP 01:30 Jimbo isn't pleased with his QB doing a poor job on third down.
BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 07:08.
1-10 at Bc12 425 Hilliman,J rush for loss of 1 yard to the BC11 (LawrenceStample;Sweat, J.). NLS times this snap perfectly - ball isn't halfway to Wade before NLS' hat is past the OL's helmet. OL tries to block him down in this power run. Sweat also gets off his block and the two combine to make the TFL. Excellent DL play here.
2-11 at Bc11 425 Wade,D rush for 4 yards to the BC15 (LawrenceStample;Northrup, R.). PA pass play, BC receivers running deeper developing routes. NLS sheds his blocker like he isn't there and forces Wade to take off. NLS snatches at his ankle as he tries to get forward, Northrup finishes it up. NLS having himself a game. I'd argue gap in middle came from block in back by BC center on Nnadi
3-7 at Bc15 416 NASCAR Wade,D pass incomplete to Alston,S. Pass rush formation, Newberry and Walker inside, Sweat and Pugh on edges. Cover 2 with 4 man rush, Andrews follows stem vertical, there was really nowhere for this pass to go. Brutus possibly too aggressive trying to hit WR here - gotta be careful.
4-7 at Bc15 Howell,A punt 56 yards to the FS29, Wilson, J. return 0 yards to the FS29, Elliott, J. for loss of 7 yards to the FS22 (Simmons,J;Moore,K). Bobo drops one. Terrible. Javion Elliott does a great job picking it up. Just realy poor. Can't seem to find someone to catch the ball. Return blocking is really poor, two unimpeded BC guys were able to get there with little issue.
Drive: 3 plays, 3 yards, TOP 01:34 NLS goes beast mode, good coverage on 3rd and 7.
FLORIDA STATE drive start at 05:34.
1-10 at Fs22 21 I Cook, D. rush for 5 yards to the FS27 (Johnson,J). Fake FB wham, toss to Cook wide. Good blocking by Rudolph, but Bobo can't hold the edge and the BC safety takes a good angle to keep this. Good play by BC defender to be aware and force this wide despite Cook's speed. Good play call by Jimbo to get it to Cook in space with the inside fake, though.
2-5 at Fs27 11 Gun Golson, E. pass complete to Cook, D. for 7 yards to the FS34, 1ST DOWN FS (Daniels,S). Stack release, quick throw to Cook in flat. Golson probably needs to hit Bobo on the crosser underneath, but can't fault him for going to the matchup of Cook vs a backer in the flats. It works, and if Cook isn't dinged up, very possible he's able to shed this, turn the corner and be out the gate.
1-10 at Fs34 11 Singleback Golson, E. pass incomplete to Ramsey, J., QB hurry by Milano,M. PA with deeper routes with six man protection, but Izzo does a terrible job and is easily passed by. Bell also whipped inside. Golson forced to scramble and throws it away.
2-10 at Fs34 11 Singleback Cook, D. rush for 5 yards to the FS39 (Daniels,S;Schwab,T). Outside zone to field, FSU has major numbers advantage here. Rod Johnson unable to get second level and his man takes down Cook without issue. Ditto on Izzo, who can't nearly hold the edge and forces Cook to cut up into the lane where Johnson's guy was. This is really poor here. They have to get much more when they have such an obvious number advantage.
3-5 at Fs39 10 Gun Golson, E. pass complete to Whitfield, K. for 9 yards to the FS48, 1ST DOWN FS. All curl, Noles use cuts to try to slow the rush and open up throwing lanes. Kelly's cut whiffs terribly, Johnson gets beaten quickly outside, and Golson is forced out of the pocket. Finds Kermit on the scramble in the MOF. This is where having Golson's legs and scrambling ability is a huge boon.
1-10 at Fs48 21 Pony Golson, E. pass incomplete to Wilson, J.. Comically shallow quarters, Jimbo calls a shot play - 7 man max protect, 2 receivers downfield. BC does a good job recognizing it and covering the two deep routes. Calling this PI would be very ticky tacky, but BC DB does chop Bobo's arm before ball gets there. Good coverage, but well thrown deep ball by Golson.
2-10 at Fs48 10 Gun Golson, E. pass incomplete to Pender, M., QB hurry by Wujciak,C. Slant/flat, quick game. Martinez gets passed by like he isn't there. Golson does a great job of getitng the ball out while getting hit, but just isn't able to put it on target. Terrible by Martinez, Wujciak just swims past him.
3-10 at Fs48 Timeout Florida State, clock 02:58.
3-10 at Fs48 Timeout Florida State, clock 02:58. Jimbo absolutely furious at the refs about the play clock
3-10 at Fs48 11 Gun Golson, E. sacked for loss of 7 yards to the FS41 (Landry,H;Abdesmad,M). BC lines up with a Bear front, using it to twist and confuse the interior 3. Miscommunication between Bell and Martinez allows BC DL to get to Golson despite falling. Poor pocket presence from Golson, since this was a six man protection and he had both time and room to step out of the pocket. Looks like MArtinez's fault. Didn't see anything downfield with camera.
4-17 at Fs41 Beatty, C. punt 58 yards to the BC1, downed. BAEtty gets an excellent punt off. Fantastic evening by this kid.
Drive: 8 plays, 19 yards, TOP 03:32 OL struggling both physically and mentally with a BC defense that does an excellent job making it very difficult on them.
1-10 at Bc01 BOSTON COLLEGE drive start at 02:02.
1-10 at Bc01 425 Wade,D rush for 1 yard to the BC2 (LawrenceStample). Dive play, FSU DL holds point of attack excellently, NLS sheds his man and brings down the QB on the sneak.
2-9 at Bc02 425 Wolford,B rush for 1 yard to the BC3 (Hoskins, R.). NLS does an excellent job standing up a double team, allowing Hoskins to get into the hole quickly, where he meets and brings down the runner on the lead zone from BC's jumbo package despite being engaged. Fantastic run defense here.
3-8 at Bc03 425 Wade,D rush for 9 yards to the BC12, 1ST DOWN BC (Ramsey, J.;Hoskins, R.). PA here, no one open downfield. Nnadi and Pugh both get pressure but do a poor job containing the rush. Pugh isn't aware of the guard and gets pushed right out of the play, opening up a lane. Need better lane discipline here. Wade makes a really good move in the open field to avoid 24's tackle and get the first down.
1-10 at Bc12 425 Alston,S rush for 1 yard to the BC13 (Ramsey, J.). Jet sweep, Hoskins does a fantastic job forcing it wide to the boundary, Ramsey sheds his blocker and cleans it up. Excellent defense.
Drive: 4 plays, 12 yards, TOP 04:42 Fine drive, one lane discipline error.
Florida State 7, Boston College 0 Excellent defensive and punting quarter, terrible offensive and punt returning quarter.
