Florida State Seminoles

  • Louisville at No. 11 Florida State
  • Florida State -9

It’s not a matter of if, but when Florida State suffers their first loss. They haven’t played a championship caliber team and they sure haven’t looked like one with the exception of Dalvin Cook’s play at running back.  Heisman hopeful Cook is the centerpiece of this Seminole’s offense having rushed for 792 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Jimbo Fisher’s defense better have a good game plan to stop a Louisville offense under Bobby Petrino. While he might not be everyone’s favorite guy, Petrino is one of the best play callers in the game today and he is dealing with a very young team that has had a rough start to 2015 with losses to Auburn, Houston, and Clemson.

However, it was in that 3 point loss to Clemson where the Cards seemed to have found a renewed confidence. Louisville is also coming off their bye week giving them plenty of time to strategize on how they can come out of Tallahassee, Florida with a win.

Like Florida State senior quarterback Everett Golson, Lamar Jackson poses a dual threat at the quarterback position and has been a fast learner. It wasn’t that long ago when a young Golson took the Notre Dame Fighting Irish to the National Championship Game as a freshman, but he hasn’t looked the same since then with a knack for turnovers. This is an upset that would least surprise me in week 7.
