FSU Vs. Oklahoma: FSU Defense Keeping Team Alive Through Half, 3-13

This is not a one-sided game. Though it is true that EJ Manuel has thrown two interception passes and that the latter was returned for 69 yards, the Seminole offense has been making plays. FSU's running play has improved and its passing has been good overall (aside from occasional interception).  Some of FSU's best offense plays have been by running the quarterback.  

Not only has the Seminole offense been making plays, but the defense looks effective.  It's obvious that  FSU Defensive Coordinator Mark Stoops has not been idle after a scary opening 10 minutes. FSU defense has adjusted and has applied pressure to quick moving Oklahoma offense, forcing them to punt and settle for a field goal.

NOTE: FSU's Kenney Shaw was slammed so hard that he lost consciousness right before he crossed the goal-line. Shaw was carted off the field and is being taken to a local hospital.  His getting knocked was a game changer. If not for that hit, the game would be 10-7 FSU
