Florida State's offense is and will always be driven by the pass with Jameis Winston behind center, and he certainly looked like a Heisman winner against GT: 21-for-30, 309 yards, three scores, no picks, no sacks. But damn, Dalvin Cook (31 carries, 177 yards). With the kind of running game FSU had on Saturday, the 'Noles would be ranked first or second in Off. F/+ instead of sixth.
Of course, the Georgia Tech defense stinks. (At 58th in Def. F/+, the Jackets have the worst defense among any team in the overall F/+ top 38.) And of course, the Georgia Tech offense nearly managed to render FSU's offensive output moot. But after Tech sliced through the Seminoles for three long, mostly easy touchdown drives to start the game, the 'Noles stiffened and allowed only one score in the next five possessions. That was enough for Winston, Cook, and company. Barely.
