College Football: 5 Matchups That Will Determine The FSU-Oklahoma Winner
Florida State has not seen Oklahoma since a 13-2 loss in the 2002 National Championship

On Saturday, Florida State will travel to Norman, Oklahoma to attempt a feat that, in the time of Bob Stoops, has only happened twice in 68 attempts—beat Oklahoma on their home turf.  There may be no better time than now for Florida State to schedule Oklahoma.  Why?

First, early in the season some teams have not reached their peak and struggle against quality opponents. 

In this case, Oklahoma looked worse in its opening match against Utah State than Florida State did against Samford.  Second, Florida State has its best team since the last time they made it to the national championship—a loss to Oklahoma, no less—and is looking for revenge.

This will not be another Samford rout, nor will it be David versus Goliath.  In fact, these two teams play very similar football and will have to work every minute of the game to pull out a victory.

There are five main matchups to watch for that will help determine the winner of this crucial non-conference game.  Here is the count down.
