Not Many Style Points
FSU didn’t score many style points Saturday, but I don’t think it matters. There can only be a maximum of four undefeated Power 5 programs because Michigan and Ohio State will play one another.
As long as FSU continues to win, they’ll be in the College Football Playoffs. They’ve played one of the toughest schedules among the top teams and will likely have to play to ranked Louisville in the ACC Championship game.
As I mentioned, it’s not like Ohio State or Georgia blew their opponents away this week. Washington hasn’t looked dominant over the past few weeks either. I think FSU could have tried to pour it on against Pittsburgh to score a couple more times, but I think Mike Norvell was content with the final score.
Once FSU went up 24-7, FSU began to go to the run game almost exclusively on the first two downs in each possession to keep the clock running.
It also meant FSU could get away with running less plays and escape the game without more injuries, though I did see Jordan Travis limping a bit(I think he’ll be fine) as he came off the field before Tate Rodemaker went into the game.
FSU wants all hands on deck for its game against Miami next week, and I expect everyone to be available unless there is a setback at practice this week.
