Florida State has held a lead for less than three of 120 minutes played in 2017

Not a good trend for FSU.

NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Florida State Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State is struggling tremendously through its first two games. Not only is its current 0-2 record the first since 1989, but the Seminoles are clearly losing its battle with game control.

Through two games, 120 minutes of football, Florida State has held a lead for just two minutes and 13 seconds. That was a 7-3 lead against ’Bama that lasted only one drive before the Crimson Tide reclaimed the lead. That Alabama drive ended with 11:28 left in the second quarter.

Since that point, 101 minutes and 28 seconds of game time have passed and the Seminoles have yet to lead at any point.

The total amount of time Florida State has trailed in 2017?

100 minutes and 26 seconds. Thats 84% of the time.

Of those 100+ minutes, FSU has trailed by double digits for 26 minutes and 56 seconds. That’s more time, 17 minutes 21 seconds, than FSU has been tied in 2017.
