Big Board: Short-yardage concerns 

September, 6, 2012
After a 69-3 win over Murray State last Saturday, there were plenty of big numbers for Florida State's offense to celebrate, and the bulk revolved around the seemingly rejuvenated ground game.

The offensive line got a strong push, opened holes and the running backs took advantage. For the game, FSU racked up 285 yards rushing, seven touchdowns on the ground, and while the opponent didn't provide much of a stumbling block, the Seminoles were happy to proclaim it a big victory for their running game.

"I think we're much further along," Jimbo Fisher said. "We have much more diversity in our running game. … I thought the offensive line did a real nice job. We've got a long way to go, but it's much improved."
Florida State Still No. 1 In AP Poll
Florida State's close win over Oklahoma State cost the Seminoles some first-place votes, but not enough to knock them from the No. 1 spot in the AP poll.
