No Turnovers

The FSU offense has been a turnover machine the past two years. In fact, they had a turnover in every single game last year and multiple turnovers in the final five games.

This is an area the Noles have improved this year through a smaller sample size. They’ve gone three consecutive games without committing a turnover which has made a huge difference in their play the past three games.

They’ve had two turnovers in each of the last two games against Clemson which hasn’t helped their cause.

Clemson on the other hand has committed more turnovers than takeaways thus far. It’s an area the Noles will have to win to have a shot at winning the game.

I’m talking about getting multiple turnovers and turning them into points off those gained possessions too, not just creating turnovers.

We understand there’s a certain component of luck when talking about turnovers. The way a ball bounces on a fumble. Passes like the one Alex Hornibrook threw to Keith Gavin against NC State probably should have been intercepted.

However, the less those types of instances happen the more it means FSU players are making smart decisions and doing the little things correctly which leads to winning footballd
