In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles 59-16 victory over the Texas State Bobcats.
Everett Golson made his FSU debut Saturday night and completed 19 of 25 passes for 302 yards, 4 touchdowns with 0 interceptions. The passing attack was set up by a dominant running attack that was established early in the game. FSU ran the ball on 23 of the first 32 offensive plays and tallied 266 total rushing yards. Dalvin Cook led the way with 156 rushing yards on just 19 carries. He also scored 2 touchdowns.
The defense was more physical and really hustled to the ball. Despite only having 1 sack, the Noles were still able to get pressure on the QB and force him to get rid of the ball sooner than he wanted to. The defensive line in pressure packages was: Josh Sweat, Giorgio Newberry, Demarcus Walker and Jacob Pugh.
Overall it was a bad night for the special teams. Kermit Whitfield and Jalen Ramsey had good kickoff returns but those were offset by: 2 fumbled punt returns, a fake punt conversion allowed, 2 bad punts and 2 kickoffs that sailed out of bounds.
