Florida State had a successful 2010 campaign, especially when considering they finished 7-6 in 2009. They finished the 2010 season with a 10-4 record, a disappointing loss in the ACC Championship game, but a huge bowl win against South Carolina.
Now the expectations are rolling in. With the No. 1–rated recruiting class, Florida State has its sights set on national attention this year and a BCS berth.
The usual suspects such as Miami, Clemson and Florida will all present equal challenges for the Seminoles, and all three teams will be looking to get revenge for the losses to the 'Noles a year ago, but Oklahoma will arguably be Florida State's biggest test.
Last year Florida State went into Norman looking for a huge upset; what they got was a blowout loss that halted the confidence of the revamped Florida State team right in their tracks.
A new year brings new opportunities, and Florida State has every opportunity to surprise the entire country and put forth a dominating year in 2011.
