Despite the high profile of both quarterbacks, the difference in this game was the receivers. Jameis Winston was plagued by five drops, one of which turned into an interception.

Mariota’s stats were impressive, but were dramatically aided by a questionable defensive scheme from Florida State which allowed for his receivers to run untouched for three to four yards on every screen pass. Exactly 25 percent of Mariota’s yards came on passes he didn’t even throw past the line of scrimmage.

When Mariota did throw the ball past the line of scrimmage, his completion percentage dropped to a more pedestrian 57 percent. And it fell to a woeful 42 percent on passes 10 or more yards beyond the line of scrimmage.

Both teams ran the ball at will. The difference was Florida State’s turnovers dug them such a hole they were forced to throw the ball.

What’s most astonishing about the rushing stats is the lack of yards after contact. And that’s not a knock on the running backs. Ball carriers on both teams were running the ball through wide open lanes and consistently getting to the second level of defenders without anyone laying a finger on them.

Florida State’s top rushers Dalvin Cook and Karlos Williams combined for 180 yards—139 of which came before contact. With run defense like that from Oregon, it’s easy to imagine a different outcome to this game if the Seminoles had been able to avoid the turnovers which killed their chances.

Travis Rudolph and Rashad Greene were targeted 22 times, three of which were charted as uncatchable passes. That means they combined to drop four of 19 catchable passes from Winston—an inexcusable 21 percent of their targets.

Oregon’s receivers could more accurately be described as “wide running backs” as 13 of their receptions came behind the line of scrimmage, and resulted in 82 total yards.

Including yards gained behind the line of scrimmage, Oregon receivers ran for 226 yards after the catch.

Both offensive lines held up fairly well in pass protection. The Seminoles line was particularly strong, frequently giving Jameis Winston three to five seconds in the pocket.

P.J. Williams tops this chart with 14 tackles but that comes with a massive asterisk. His tackling technique is painful to watch—and his four missed tackles are an indication of just how bad he can be at times. But due to the Seminoles’ front seven’s inability to stop the run and Oregon’s high percentage of wide receiver screens, Williams was in the vicinity of the ball carrier at the time of the tackle on an overwhelming majority of plays.

The most telling stat of the day for Florida State: four of their top five tacklers play in the secondary.

This was a difficult game to chart coverage statistics for due to Oregon’s offensive attack and Florida State’s defensive scheme. Many of Oregon’s receptions (primarily those behind the line of scrimmage) were charted as uncovered.

This was due to Florida State’s tendency to place two defenders in front of three receivers on the outside. This strategy played right into Oregon’s hands as two receivers immediately set up as blockers, while one dropped back to receive the pass.

When throwing down the field, Florida State’s secondary faired well. Oregon completed just six of 11 passes when targeting Florida State’s starting defensive backs more than five yards down the field.
