‘Noles By The Numbers: Week One

The stats don’t tell the full story, but they can paint a hell of a picture of what went wrong for Florida State against Boise State. The offense sputtered on third-downs, finishing just 1/12 in the game while allowing four sacks.

On the other side of the ball, the Seminoles currently hold the third-worst defense in the nation after giving up 621 total yards of offense to the Broncos. Harlon Barnett and his unit are going to need to regroup after allowing over 400 passing yards and over 200 yards on the ground. All in all, it was a pretty disheartening performance after a positive first half.
