FSU Seminoles Have Best Special Teams in The NCAA

At least, they do according to Football Outsiders. I'm still learning about advanced football statistics and analysis, but those guys are pretty smart so I'll take their word for it.

The Noles really got it done on special teams last week and vaulted from #10 to #1. Taking a closer look at the individual components of the Special Teams Fremeau Efficiency Index (FEI):

Overall: #1 
Field Goals: #9 
Punt Returns: #3 
KO returns: #89 
Punting: #1 
Kickoffs: #12

Even though the Seminoles have had a disappointing season, they managed to creep back into the AP Top 25 this past week after beating Miami. Special teams might not be the most sexy thing, but 'Noles fans might as well celebrate even the small victories at this point.
