Jimbo Fisher: Offensive line not entirely to blame for Florida State's sacks problem




Florida State's offensive line is again the subject of scrutiny after giving up three sacks last week against Wake Forest. Through seven games, the Seminoles have allowed 21. Only nine schools in the country have given up more, and only one of those (Iowa State) is a Power Five program.

Coach Jimbo Fisher said the line isn't trying to do too much in pass protection, and it's not the cause of all of the issues, either.

During Wednesday's ACC coaches' teleconference, Fisher said running backs have been responsible for a few of the sacks. Tight end have been responsible for another few, too.

"It's not all on the offensive line, and I've said that before," Fisher said. "Don't go down that road too much now."

No. 13 FSU is off this week before facing No. 4 Clemson - a Tigers team that ranks third nationally with 25 sacks.
