Florida State Seminoles
Florida State enters this weekend’s action sporting a rather disappointing 3-2 record. That lackluster record ranks FSU 5th in the ACC, thanks to the meager 1-2 record they’ve posted in conference play this year. The Seminoles kicked the season off on a low note, conceding a 24-3 loss to No. 20 Vermont at home. And even though they were able to bounce back the following week against Samford 36-26, it would not be much of a rebound. In fact, the very next weekend, Florida State would lose to the unranked Syracuse 30-7. That loss would be the nail in the coffin for FSU’s national ranking run. Nevertheless, the program has posted back-to-back wins in an attempt to re-enter the national ranking scene. This weekend’s matchup against No. 17 Miami gives Florida State an opportunity to gain notoriety by taking down a pretty talented team.
Players to Watch: Deondre Francois (1,377 passing yards, 9 TD, 5 INT), Cam Akers (316 rushing yards, 1 TD, 4.1 AVG), and Nyqwan Murray (345 receiving yards, 2 TD, 25 REC).
The Hurricanes charge into this Saturday’s matchup flashing a 4-1 record that ranks them 2nd in the ACC. Miami has posted a 1-0 record so far this year in ACC play and will be vying to pick up their second conference win of the season this weekend. Considering that Miami is 2-8 in their last 10 matchups against FSU, it’s clear the program has a long haul ahead of them. Judging by the numbers however, Miami should be able to come out on top handily this Saturday. Right now the Hurricanes are averaging 44.2 points per game, giving them the 15th best offense in the nation. The Seminoles on the other hand, are struggling to put up 22.2 per matchup. Defensively Miami takes the cake as well, since they’re only giving up 16.8 to the 24.6 that Florida State allots.
Players to Watch: Malik Rosier (611 passing yards, 5 TD, 2 INT), Travis Homer (364 rushing yards, 1 TD, 5.8 AVG), and Jeff Thomas (320 receiving yards, 2 TD, 13 REC).
