Are you sick of the Florida State Seminoles? No. Oh, you’re from Tallahassee. From the rest of the country, No. 11 Georgia Tech can borrow fans today. Florida State is, after all, a Goliath if there ever was one. Sports Illustrated is even publishing a “blueprint to beat” the Seminoles. It’s a document that evidently has been kept super-top-ultra-secret over the past two years, as Florida State has won 28 straight games and a national championship.
A glimmer of hope sparkles for the Ramblin Wreck with the absence of Florida State senior tailback Karlos Williams, who wasn’t cleared after a concussion last week. As always at the powerhouse Florida State, this could work to its advantage: the roster is so deep that FSU will start freshman Dalvin Cook. Cook’s not exactly green–he’s run for 728 yards already this season. He’d start for any other team in the country. Cook needs just 161 yards to break the school’s freshman rushing record set in 1981. The Seminoles might just change from a passing offense (rank: 13) to a running offense (rank: 105) today, just to show off. Or they may throw it to Cook. The freshman will be hungry for touches in the spotlight.
