Clemson 23, Florida State 13

CFBFR Player of the Game: Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
Three things to know…
1. Cook was almost unstoppable

Despite the loss, Dalvin Cook was undoubtedly the most dominant player in the game, rushing for 196 with a whopping 132 coming after contact.

[Note: officially Cook ran for 194 on 21 carries, but one of his “rushing attempts” was a backwards pass. We count all passes as passes, and rushes as rushes, so this shows up as reception for -2 yards in our statistics.]

2. Defense lets FSU down

The Seminoles missed 22 tackles in this game, led by Terrance Smith who converted 12 tackles but missed six. Reggie Northrup added another three missed tackles of his own.

3. Watson attacks Seminoles secondary

The Seminoles have one of the nation’s most dominant secondaries this season, but Watson went right after them.

Watson was 6-11 on passes thrown 10 or more yards downfield, and two of the incompletions were drops.

Its worth noting, however, that Watson chose to attack Jalen Ramsey rather than Marquez White. Watson was 3-6 when targeting Ramsey in coverage, and 0-1 when going after White.t
