Stat book: FSU getting after QBs, Cunningham racks up rushing TDs

The Osceola will have more in the coming days on Louisville, but here’s a quick look at some numbers of note with FSU and the Cardinals:

Jermaine Johnson leads FSU with 28 tackles, 7 tackles for loss and five sacks.

FSU has 25 tackles for loss, including at least eight in each game. The Seminoles have not had eight or more tackles for loss in three straight games since 2017: Clemson (nine), Delaware State (11) and Florida (10).

McKenzie Milton ranks fifth nationally among active players with 8,983 career passing yards.

Malik Cunningham’s six rushing touchdowns in three games puts him at No. 7 in the FBS. He is the first Louisville player to rush for five or more touchdowns in four seasons.

Louisville nearly gives up as many rushing yards (162) as the Cardinals produce in their rush offense (168).

The Cardinals also have a young roster, with 72 percent of the 115 players being underclassmen. FSU features 23 of 54 (42.6 percent) true or redshirt freshmen as rotational players in the depth chart.

FSU holds a 16-5 series lead, including a 10-2 mark in Tallahassee. 

Louisville has dropped its last three ACC openers. The Cardinals are 29-29 since joining the league in 2014.
