EJ Manuel keyed an offensive explosion, and the Florida State defense rebounded from a rocky first half to pull off a come-from-behind win over Clemson on Saturday. Here are five stats from the game that tell the story and offer some insight into where FSU goes from here.

11 for 11: That was Manuel's completions and attempts after Clemson scored on its first drive of the second half to open a 14-point lead. Manuel had been solid early, completing 16 of 24 passes for 192 yards in the first half and the first drive of the second, but he was brilliant down the stretch. His 11 straight completions went for 188 yards and two touchdowns. Manuel became the first FSU quarterback to throw for 300 yards and rush for 100 since Charlie Ward in 1992.

1,124: That's Florida State's rushing total through four games this season, after adding 287 more against Clemson on Saturday. That's just 334 yards shy of the Seminoles' total for the entirety of the 2011 season. A healthy Chris Thompson, who rushed for 103 yards and two touchdowns against Clemson, has been a key, but it's the marked improvement from Florida State's offensive line that has allowed the running game to flourish.
