Why Florida State Will Win

A two-game-winning streak is a two-game winning streak.

There might be a slew of problems for the next Seminole head coach to worry about, but for now, the team is playing with a bit more bounce thanks to a passing game that got big play after big play from James Blackman.

Beating Boston College and Alabama State might not be any big deal, but with a bowl game on the line and needing to win the last two games before dealing with this trip down the road, the team stepped up after the Willie Taggart firing and produce two straight 300-yard games through the air.

Blackman hit BC for 346 yards and two big scores, and enjoyed the scrimmage against ASU with three touchdown passes and more big bombs. Now it’s time to step up against the big boys again.

The Gators have NFL talent in the secondary, but it’s possible to throw on this group.

Joe Burrow took target practice in LSU’s win, and Jake Fromm came up with a sharp day in Georgia’s win. Those were the only two times this year the Gators allowed more than eight yards per pass.

Blackman is averaging eight yards per throw.

To keep up the pace he’s going to have to hit the big play, because …

Why Florida Will Win

Kyle Trask is good.

The 6-5, 240-pounder announced he was coming back or another year after taking over for an injured Feleipe Franks and growing into a better-than-you-might-think prospect.

He’s been hitting on the big throws averaging over eight yards per pass with 21 touchdowns and six picks – he’ll have no problems matching whatever the Seminole quarterbacks do.

The Gators might have the line and the ability to grind it out, but they don’t. Trask and the passing game have been too sharp.

The Florida passing game has hit the 200-yard mark in every game with multiple touchdown passes in every game but one, and now it gets to go off against a FSU secondary that’s a shadow of the versions from a few years ago.

On the other side, the Florida State offensive line is still an issue. It’s allowing way too many sacks and way too many plays behind the line, and now the Gators get back their best pass rusher. Jabari Zuniga is back from an ankle injury, and now he’s going to be unleashed on one of the nation’s least-productive offensive fronts.

What’s Going To Happen

Florida State is bowl eligible. It did what it needed to do to start a new streak of bowl appearances, it rallied back from the adversity, and it did it all before this game.

Now it’s about to run into a wall.

Florida not only needs to win this, but it has to do it impressively.

It’s 11th in the latest CFP rankings, and Penn State is tenth. Penn State gets to call its shot against Rutgers – it’s going to be 10-2 without having to try.

The Gators will be 10-2, too, but it’s going to take an impressive blowout to get the committee to like the overall body of work a little bit more. If that happens, a New Year’s Six game is a possibility.

Florida will roll, the defensive front will live behind the FSU line, and after whacking Vanderbilt and Missouri by a combined score of 79-6, it’ll come up with a third straight blowout to close out a strong regular season with its tenth win.
