Just a quick hit here, before I try to catch the end of the Miami vs Oklahoma game. (Go ACC!)
If you had told me that the Jackets would throw for more yards than they would rush for, I’d have laughed. But that’s just what happened as Josh Nesbitt went 11 of 14 for 266 yards and a touchdown. Four different receivers caught passes, led by Demarius Thomas’ eight catches for 175 yards.
The Jackets still ground out yards on the ground as they ran 54 times for 216 yards. But it was the passing game which saved the day. And it definitely gives the FSU coaches something to look at and worry about before the upcoming game this next weekend.
I expected the Bulldogs to be able to run the ball. They have a real stud in Anthony Dixon and he was instrumental in MSU running for over 200 yards on the Tech defense. The Jackets defense didn’t seem all that keen on tackling anyone, especially Dixon.
It was a strange, strange game with huge momentum swings and big plays. Kick returns for touchdowns, fumbles picked up for touchdowns, both teams fumbling balls away on their opponent’s goal line, and six fourth down attempts between the two teams…all of which were converted.
But…what is it the SEC fans always say?
“Its tough to win on the road in the SEC…”
Yup…sure is tough…and we’ll take the win and move onto the next game. 1-0 in the SEC sounds good no matter how you get there!
Beat the ‘Noles!
