TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Jimbo Fisher isn't looking for the record-setting numbers his Florida State offense put up en route to winning the final BCS national championship.

The fifth-year coach says it's not about replicating the yards and points, but being efficient enough to win the first college football playoff.

The offense lost two receivers, two running backs and a center to the NFL, including first-round receiver Kelvin Benjamin, fourth round running back Devonta Freeman and fourth round center Bryan Stork.

Expectations remain high, however, for a group that returns Heisman-winning quarterback Jameis Winston, Rashad Greene — one of the most prolific receivers in FSU history — and an offensive line with four senior starters. Also returning is running back Karlos Williams, who averaged eight yards per carry in 2013.
