TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- How about this for a stat: Florida State is the only Power 5 team in the country to start seven different combinations on the offensive line.

That's a new combination every game.

Through the first six weeks, they struggled with those combinations, mightily. But Saturday against Wake Forest, we saw improvement.

Yes, Deondre Francois had to use his legs at times, but the line didn't allow a sack, instead allowing him to make plays with his legs.

They even allowed Cam Akers to break off for a 58-yard touchdown run.

On Monday, Willie Taggart said he noticed the improvements from Saturday, too, and he believes the guys up front are finally feeling comfortable in his system.

"They have a better feel for what we're doing and understanding of how we're going to get it done so that's helping," Taggart said. "Again, not where we want to be completely, but we continue to make those improvements like that. We'll get there."
