Feleipe Franks at Mississippi State

At/Behind LOS: 7/12, 29 yards
1-5 yard passes: 7/7, 62 yards

Best throw: The 52-yard pass to De’Vion Warren in the second quarter. Perfect spiral, and the ball hit Warren in stride, which afforded him the chance to pick up 13 yards after the catch.
Worst throw: Franks’ final pass of the first half was hot and high for running back Trelon Smith 6 yards behind the line of scrimmage.
Interceptable throws: 0 (Franks was clean here. The one pass he threw that could have been picked off was his 28-yard throw to Warren, but it wasn’t his fault. The pass was on the money, though, and only interceptable because the ball went through the receiver’s hands, off his leg and into the air.)

Thank you for this and all of the articles you provide. Was the pass to Warren on the last series a 3rd down throw for a critical 1st down?

Thank you,

Jeff H.

Yes, it was. Thought it was arguably Feleipe’s biggest throw of the night, too.

I missed that 3rd and 8 conversion you had listed!

Thank you,

Jeff H.
