Florida State lost to Alabama in Week 1 and worst than that lost QB Deondre Francois to a season ending knee injury. The Seminoles went into Week 1 as #3 and are currently #12. Doak Campbell Stadium will be full of players and supporters for the return of the Seminoles now lead by QB James Blackman. FSU has turned up mixed results after bye weeks in the past but this was not a normal bye week. In Week 1 FSU had 40 total rushing yards by 3 different players and 19 receptions for 210 receiving yards by targeting 7 players. QB Deondre Francois completed 19/33 for a 57.6 percent completion rate. Now comes James Blackman a freshman QB and a very frustrated team who is ready to blow off some steam. Who better than a team that the Seminoles has had 4 straight wins against at home? "(He's) determined. Very focused. That's about the best way I can (describe it)," Fisher said of Blackman's progression. "He grinds. He pushes. He asks questions. He likes to be coached. I like how he's going; we'll just have to wait and see how he plays and hope things go well." The FSU defense is coming into the game fresh but may be a little rusty. They will need to shut down the Wolfpack’s offense and give the freshman QB some breathing room to showcase his talent.
The Wolfpack are coming off two wins in a row against Marshall and Furman. TE Jaylen Samuels already has 258 all purpose yards and 5 TDs on the season. RB Nyheim Hines and Reggie Gallaspy II both have 2 rushing touchdowns. The team total for rushing TDs is 9. The receivers are just as hot. WR Kelvin Harmon has 24 rec for 268 yards and 1 TD and WR Stephen Louis ran 168 yards on 16 receptions. The Wolfpack has scored 15 touchdowns in their last 3 games.
FSU’s defense possesses a lot of talent including Brian Burns, Josh Sweat, Jacob Pugh and safety Derwin James who will probably be covering Jaylen Samuels, if the defensive tackles Derrick Nnadl and Demarcus Christmas stay healthy and work together they can stop the run.
