Florida State (0-1) vs. ULM (1-0) Game Preview
Why ULM Will Win
Is Florida State properly hydrated? If that was actually the problem against Boise State, it still could take a bit more than a week for everyone to get back to 100%.
For another week, the Noles have to deal with a dangerous playmaking quarterback with the ability to take over games. Last week it was a true freshman in Hank Bachmeier, and this week it’s Caleb Evans, a dual-threat veteran who was terrific in the opening week win over Grambling.
Thirsty or not, the Seminole defense couldn’t handle anything Boise State tried to do, giving up over 600 yards of total offense and got pounded on a bit. The Broncos made the game a grind, and ULM has to try doing the same.
Can ULM hold the ball for 40 minted like Boise State did?
Why Florida State Will Win
Yeah, FSU had a disastrous second half – getting shut out and collapsing late – but it looked like Florida State all over again in the first half. It had the speed, the athleticism, and the explosion that the program is supposed to have.
Best of all, the quarterback play was outstanding. After a rocky year at the position, the Noles found have their guy with James Blackman throwing for 327 yards and three scores. He was under pressure a bit too much, but he still looked good, and so did RB Cam Akers.
ULM allowed 243 yards of Grambling rushing offense last week, and it’s about to get pounded on right away.
What’s Going To Happen
After what happened against Boise State, this is going to be an angry, focus, fired up, and fitter FSU team that’s ready for the full 60 minutes. The defense will swarm all over Evans, but the offensive front will still have problems keeping people out of the backfield. This won’t make the Boise State loss go away, but it’ll show that this really is a better Seminole squad.
