TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State showed it can rely on its running game when redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston has an off night.
The third-ranked Seminoles pounded out 192 yards on the ground in their 41-14 win against Miami.
James Wilder Jr. returned to the lineup after suffering a concussion and he's healthy after an early season shoulder injury. Wilder Jr., Devonta Freeman and Karlos Williams are the trio coach Jimbo Fisher envisioned, yet he hasn't had them at full strength since beating Bethune-Cookman in the third game of the season.
The Seminoles (8-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) have run for a combined 416 yards the last two weeks.
Fisher credits a veteran offensive line, blocking from the tight ends and receivers and better reads from the backs for the developing run game.
