For the first time in almost a decade, the Florida State Seminoles are serious contenders for the BCS National Championship. Coming into the weekend ranked sixth in the nation is a feat in itself. However, for 2012 to be a success, the 'Noles must live up their preseason expectations. Although this weekend's matchup against FCS opponent Savannah State will not be competitive, there are still several things that all die-hard FSU fans should watch for.
The spread on this game favors the Seminoles by 70.5 points. In fact, that's the biggest margin in college football history. Savannah State is coming off a 84-0 drubbing by Oklahoma State, so it's fair to expect a similar result this weekend.
However, no matter the score, the 'Noles still have to play 60 minutes of football. With that, there are still several question marks on this roster that need to be answered before the team begins play against FBS opponents.
Let's take a look at five keys to Saturday's matchup and how they will affect the remainder of FSU's run at a BCS bowl game.
