Why Florida State Will Win

Now was that so hard?

Florida State got the running game rolling against a real team – cranking out 241 yards in the win over North Carolina – and the defense was able to hold on late.

The offensive line that’s been such a problem over the last several years and the first part of the season still isn’t great, but at least it’s not a complete disaster anymore.

What’s Going To Happen

All of a sudden, FSU appears to have a different look and feel with Jordan Travis at quarterback. James Blackman wasn’t the problem, but he doesn’t move, and Travis does – that’s why the Seminole offensive line all of a sudden doesn’t look so awful.

But Louisville is finally back at home.

The Cardinals had a three-game road trip that didn’t exactly go well, but watch for the offense to perk up just a little bit after a rough run. The secondary will come through when needed more often than FSU’s will.
