Saturday Blitz Vegas Prediction: Florida State Wins 45-31

There is far too much hype behind Louisville in this game thanks to something that happened 12 years ago. Here’s an honest question to people bringing that up: Do you seriously think these teams are the same?

Do you think this FSU team is the same as the one that finished 9-5 in 2002? Do you honestly think Jameis Winston would choke away a game the way Chris Rix used to? Do you really believe that Florida State this time is not going to take Louisville seriously?

The Noles are coming off a bye week after just barely escaping Notre Dame the week before. They have had plenty of rest, and they are going to be alert.

Winston keeps saving Florida State, and he’ll do it again on Thursday night. The Cardinals do have a great defense, but it won’t matter. And the Louisville offense has proven itself to be far too inconsistent. Although Florida State has looked questionable on defense, it can force turnovers, and that’s what it will do to Louisville.

The Seminoles finally come through and play the game we all expect them to play, and they’ll win comfortably on the road.
