The Noles in the first half showed that they cannot score TDs inside the red zone. Field goals will not beat a team like Florida. The twelve points by the Noles came on the foot of Gary Cismesia. Cismesia was great and his 60 yarder was outstanding but it was almost like kissing your sister.
The Noles could not take advantage of the shorter Florida secondary as Greg Carr and De' Cody Fagg had only three catches between them for 36 total yards. The Nole defense was unable to stop Tebow as he threw for 2 TDs and ran for one. The Gators were able to convert 4 of 5 third downs and the Noles only 2 of 6.
The second half was more of the same. The Noles couldn't get anything going on offense and the defense couldn't stop the Gator offense. This was a game in which the FSU coaches were clearly out coached and as FSU radio analyst Peter Tom Willis said, the Noles on defense were not physical.
Tim Tebow scored two more TDs in the second half and Percy Harvin showed what he is capable of with a 24 yard TD run.
The Noles could not even score field goals as the Noles were shut out in the second half. The fact that there was not a TD scored by FSU clearly showed that FSU was outmatched in all phases of the game.
