TALLAHASSEE - Two days after FSU rushed for 313 yards - the program's most since 2002 - against BYU, offensive coordinator Jimbo Fisher praised all of the team's blocking.
"Our perimeter blocking was much better," he said. "We blocked well on the outside with our receivers and our backs which, in the Jacksonville State game, the line was taking some of the blame for some of the things that went on. It's a combination of all those things when you're running the football to get up there and do it (effectively)."
