Study Hall: Florida State 45, Duke 7

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Advanced stats from the 2013 ACC Championship, a 45-7 Florida State win over Duke.

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

It's really, really hard to end up with a leverage rate under 50%. Hard, but not impossible.

From Tuesday's Numerical:

In their first ACC title game, the Blue Devils came prepared on defense, allowing just seven points and forcing three punts and a turnover on Florida State's first five possessions. But the Duke offense traveled more than 11 yards just once in its first 10 drives and missed a field goal in its only scoring opportunity. When FSU's Karlos Williams scored on a mean, contact-heavy 12-yard run to make the score 14-0 late in the first half, it felt like the game was over. It would only get worse from there, of course; the Seminoles cruised, 45-7.
