Not much offense needed as Florida State clinches ACC division title
Florida State clinched a spot in the ACC Championship Game with its 59-3 win at Wake Forest on Saturday.
Florida State needed only about 15-20 minutes of game time to clinch the ACC Atlantic Division title, earning a spot in the ACC Championship Game for the second straight season. The final score may suggest an offensive explosion from Jameis Winston or running back Devonta Freeman, but the win came with fairly little effort needed on offense thanks to seven Wake Forest turnovers.
The Seminoles had three touchdown drives of 2 plays or less and finished with a season-low 284 yards of total offense -- for comparison, Florida State averages 549.1 yards per game. Wake Forest starting quarterback Tanner Price and backup Tyler Cameron combined to throw six interceptions and six completions in the turnover-filled performance, as the Seminoles defense tied the single-game school record for picks.
Of course, Florida State is also sitting in the driver's seat for a shot at the BCS title thanks to Stanford's upset of Oregon on Thursday. Clinching the division and defending the league title is important, but the expectations for this team after nine games are higher than that.
After the game, the team returned to the locker room in Winston-Salem to find their Atlantic Division. Jimbo Fisher posed for a photo with the hardware, which was released by the school.
