Conclusion

Make no mistake about it, FSU should have blown Michigan out, so credit for Michigan for not laying down after getting worked in the first half.

FSU turnovers were a direct result of 10 points by Michigan.

It was telling that Michigan’s best player on the night was their punter Kenny Allen.

He punted EIGHT times while averaging 47.4 yards per punt. That was huge as he was able to flip the field for Michigan’s offense several times.

However, FSU was able to hit enough explosive plays to negate their poor third down conversion percentage on the night. Again, most of the third and long situations were a result of Deondre Francois missing easy throws on first down.

All in all, it turned out to be a great game and the second most watched game all season with 11.7 million viewers on a Friday night.
