Jimbo going for four in a row
- by Administrator 2 years ago
Florida State started the season 2-0; but then lost 3 straight to Oklahoma, at Clemson and at Wake Forest. Jimbo Fisher's team has rebounded and has won it's last 3 at Duke, vs. Maryland and vs. NC State.
Tonight at 8 (ESPN), the Seminoles take on Boston College.
On paper, this looks like an opportunity for Florida State's defense to exert it's will; however games aren't played on paper. BC's offense is ranked 104th in total offense and 107th in scoring offense; while Florida State's defense (even though they got beat up in those 3 losses) is ranked 8th in total defense and 12th in scoring defense (they are also #3 in sacks averaging nearly 4 per game).
However, BC is coming off of their biggest win of the year, a 28-17 victory over Maryland in which they rushed for 372 (yes, that says that BC rushed for 372 yards at Maryland).
Hope it's a good one tonight.
