    Breaking Down The Numbers: Third Down Conversions

    National rankings based on 119 teams and the ACC rankings on 12 teams:

    Stat: Third Down Conversions- FSU had a 32.16 third down conversion percentage in 2007.

    ACC Ranking: 2006- #9 2007- #9

    National Ranking: 2006- #95 2007- #106

    The inability to convert third downs was a problem for FSU all season long in 2007. The Seminoles struggled all year in attempting to convert on both short yardage as well as long yardage situations. The developing offensive line, the inability to find holes by Antone Smith, and the lack of playmakers by FSU all contributed to numbers that have to improve if FSU wants to put up more wins. Of course this led to lack of production on offense and in TDs for 2007.
