The field goals scored by Gary Cismesia last night are significant from the standpoint of the Noles not being able to score TDS within the vicinity of the red zone. An interesting stat puts it into perspective. FSU has scored 25 of 31 times in the red zone, but only 12 of those scores have been touchdowns. In November field goals will not be enough.
How does the saying go? Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Well, the Noles special teams were fooled for the second week in a row with a fake kick. The Blue Devils executed a fake punt midway through the second quarter. On fourth-and-6 from the Duke 27-yard line, Devils punter Kevin Jones threw a 15-yard pass to receiver Eron Riley.
In what was really not much of a surprise, Greg Carr, who leads the Seminoles in receiving yards (549) and touchdown receptions (three), did not play Saturday because of a sprained wrist.
