The Seminoles averaged 207.4 yards a game on the ground compared to Auburn's 327.6, which led the nation.
Fullback Chad Abram, also a converted safety, seldom got his hands on the ball but is credited with not only protecting Winston as well as clearing the way for many big gains by his more heralded teammates.
"He's got a lot of responsibility," Freeman said. "Our fullback has a lot of responsibility. It takes an unselfish guy ... making everybody else look good."
Williams said Friday he was too mature to accept Fisher's suggestion his freshman year that he might want to make the move to offense.
"It's worked out for me," Williams said. "I like running into people, make contact. I try to make sure I cause as much punishment as possible running the ball."
Wilder, who many saw as a linebacker coming out of high school, is similar in size to Williams albeit not as fast while the 5-8, 200-pound Freeman is more of the stereotypical tailback whose strength belies his size.
None object to sharing the workload.
"You have three backs who are going to produce every time they carry the ball," Williams said. "We just keep a positive attitude and make each other better every day."
And that is an attitude that Fisher said has characterized the team's success in 2013.
"This team is playing as any well as any I've coached consistently over a long period of time," Fisher said.
