The ‘Noles played one of the cleanest games of the season and looked like the more cohesive group throughout the game. They found a lot of their success on the ground. Quarterback Jordan Travis led the charge with 121 rushing yards on his own but runningbacks Jashaun Corbin and Treshaun Ward combined for another 129.
On defense FSU held North Carolina’s talented quarterback Sam Howell in check for a majority of the game. UNC was forced to find success on the ground and ultimately couldn’t sustain their drives because of it.
This game was a big potential stepping stone for this Florida State team. It was the most complete game they have played in Norvell's tenure and may give some confidence to the team moving forward.
There was a lot to like and a lot to keep in mind for this game. Here to give their instant thoughts on tonight's performance are Kevin Little and Adam Brown from the Triple Option series of videos.
