FSU offense struggling mightily
By Matt Fortuna
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Four sacks, two false starts, one surrendered touchdown and 3.16 yards per play.
Not the best first half for Florida State's offense.
E.J. Manuel's 23-yard pass to Kenny Shaw helped the Seminoles reach 79 yards of offense this half, but Manuel has been running around like a madman as the Notre Dame front-seven makes its presence felt in the backfield.
As a team, FSU has 9 rushing yards on 14 carries.
Chad Abram's sneak on a fake punt went for nearly 4 yards, but that came up inches short of a first down.
The Seminoles need to get creative if they ever want to move the ball with any sort of consistency the rest of the way.
