One of the best to ever do it: 2013 FSU stats, records, roster, season summary

The ‘13 Seminoles, from start to finish, was one of greatest college football teams ever

Florida State, after slowly climbing back from a period fans designated as the “Lost Decade,” had finally found itself back on top of the college football world.

2013 saw FSU put together a third-ever undefeated season (and first-ever 14-0 one) in not just successful, but dominant fashion. Florida State’s 723 points were the most ever for a team until LSU exceeded that total by three in 2019 (with one extra game, mind you) and its 39.5-point average margin of victory per game is the highest of all-time with at least 10 games (Army holds overall record with 52 average margin of victory over nine games in 1944).

Over the course of the regular season, the Seminoles trailed for just 37 minutes and 49 seconds of game time — an amount that didn’t see another second tacked on once FSU tied things up with Boston College with 1:49 left in the second quarter of the fifth game of the season.

To try and capture the full scope of what the Seminoles were able to do over the course of 14 games, we’ve compiled a list of just about everything you can think of from the championship run (though there is plenty that is sure to be accidentally forgotten). What Florida State accomplished in 2013 cannot be understated — especially highlighted by the fact that when looking through the summary of the season below, keep in mind that these records are just the ones where players or the team rank first all-time.

Season Summary, via FSU Sports Info

  • Florida State closed out a perfect 14-0 season, its third undefeated season in school history with an exciting 34-31 victory over Auburn in the 2014 Vizio BCS National Championship Game on January 6, 2014. It marked the first time FSU had won 14 games in a season and was only the sixth time a team had gone 14-0 in college football history.
  • The Seminoles won the final national championship in the 16-year BCS era and did so by making the largest comeback in any national championship game. FSU trailed 21-3 with 5:07 left in the second quarter and outscored the Tigers 31-10 the rest of the game, culminating in a 2-yard touchdown catch by Kelvin Benjamin from redshirt freshman quarterback and 2013 Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston with 13 seconds left.
  • FSU led the nation in kickoff return yardage, interceptions, passing yards allowed, red zone offense, scoring defense, passing efficiency and set an NCAA record with 723 points. The Seminoles were also top-5 in the country in 10 other categories including total defense, scoring offense per game and turnover margin.
  • FSU had a 1,000-yard rusher for the first time since Warrick Dunn in 1996 as Devonta Freeman amassed 1,016 yards on the ground. The Seminoles also had players break the 1,000-yard receiving mark for the first time since Anquan Boldin in 2002 as Rashad Greene (1,128) and Kelvin Benjamin (1,011) each tallied more than 1,000 yards on the season.
