Florida State demonstrated has a lot more offense than just freshman phenom quarterback Jameis Winston.

The system have an impressive running game featuring a trio of backs: Devonta Freeman, James Wilder, Jr. and Karlos Williams.

Eighth-ranked Florida State racked up 377 rushing yards in a 62-7 victory against Nevada on Saturday. The Seminoles (2-0) surpassed the 300-yard mark on the ground just once in 2012 with 385 against Wake Forest on Sept. 15.

Safety Tyler Hunter said Monday the backs just wore down Nevada, saying "First it was Wilder and Devonta ... and you'd put Freeman in and he'd just break a big one. ... I know it has to stress the defense."

Next up for the Seminoles is Bethune-Cookman (3-0) on Saturday.
