Passing Attack Still Potent
The FSU offense had 297 total yards at halftime, and 231 came from the passing attack. Ja’Khi Douglas stepped his game up and had arguably the biggest game of his career with 115 yards on six receptions.
Jordan Travis continued from where he left last week, making a couple more NFL caliber throws. One thing that stood out was some receivers and their inability to win those 50-50 balls Keon Coleman and Johnny Wilson typically win.
However, it was good to see young players like Destyn Hill and Vandrevius Jacobs make a couple of explosive plays.
It was a triple threat from the tight ends, as Markeston Douglas, Kyle Morlock, and Jaheim Bell accounted for 12 of the 23 completions.
FSU went to the screen game as an extension of the run game at timest, as Jordan Travis completed 22 of 36 attempts.
It wasn’t pretty, but it was a good sign the Noles could be explosive without having to run Jordan Travis 10+ times in the game. FSU put up over 500 total yards of offense and was perfectly balanced at 34 pass and 34 run plays, while averaging 6.77 yards per play.
