TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - It might be time to give Florida State's backfield a new nickname.

 

"Wild & Free" worked perfectly when it was a two-man show featuring James Wilder Jr. and Devonta Freeman. But junior Karlos Williams, a safety who switched to running back after the season opener, had a breakout performance in Saturday's 62-7 drubbing of Nevada and could be in the mix the rest of the year.

 

Williams ran eight times for 110 yards, including a 65-yard touchdown run on his first career carry.

 

The Seminoles (2-0), who moved up two spots to No. 8 in the Top 25 poll, ran for 377 yards and had six different players score on the ground.

 

Williams' outing was the most impressive.
