For the first time in years, there’s cause for optimism about the Florida State offensive line.

New FSU offensive line coach Alex Atkins has found a level of success that none of his recent predecessors have been able to find, fielding a unit that has been able to stay on the field together and grow as a unit in chemistry and ability.

Through six games this season, the Seminoles are averaging 4.93 yards per carry, 19th-most out of the 74 FBS teams that have played four or more games so far this season.

Saturday’s game against Pitt at 4 p.m. on the ACC Network will be a litmus test of exactly how far FSU’s offensive line has come this season. The Panthers lead the nation in sacks (31) and yards per rush allowed (1.94).

“It definitely provides a great opportunity to see where we are versus a team that’ll bring pressure, a team that’s very aggressive with their mindset and approach,” FSU coach Mike Norvell said of the challenge Pitt presents.
