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.)

Neither team ran the ball incredibly well -- as I've said before, that seems to be FSU's bugaboo (if the Seminoles have one, anyway) -- but when FSU fell behind schedule, the 'Noles caught up. Miami did not. That was the ballgame.

The best part of this: the four turnovers were worth a combined 5.0 points. Arm punts, everybody!
