FSU football: Noles steadily improving in advanced metrics

Through 11 games FSU football has finally cracked the top 50 when it comes to overall rankings in SP+ advanced metrics.

The Nole have done it by beating up two teams with awful defenses in Boston College and Alabama State.

FSU checks in at No. 48 with the No. 40 ranked offense and No. 62 ranked defense with the No. 93rd ranked special teams.

Of course that’s a fairly significant improvement over last year where they finished No. 71 overall with the No. 97 ranked offense and No. 37 ranked defense.

The crazy thing is FSU football was thought to have a better defense returning this year aside from its lack of pass rush.
