FSU wore our OL down and came from behind to win.
Ummm… not 100% exactly true. The OL wore FSU’s DL down, at the individual player level. But then FSU faked injuries to catch their breath and/or switch out with subs. If you’re a DLineman, it’s not difficult to go full speed 100% effort for ONE play… That’s what they were doing. Faking injuries on the 2nd down play so they could be fresh on 3rd. Then they gave all they had for that one play. They’d be spent after, but they were then rolling out for the punt return team. If State converted, they’d sub out, or if couldn’t, wait for the next 2nd down play to fake another injury.
