Florida State-NC State: 'Noles Go for Third Straight Win

Matt SheaCorrespondent IOctober 15, 2008

With the Seminoles' exceptionally '90-ish play lately, could a 10-win season be in line? We see a young offensive line of FSU go to battle with a gaping NC State defense! These guys gave up 24 points to William & Mary, for cryin' out loud!

The Seminoles, however, come into Raleigh with a less than stellar defensive performance than we were used to in all games until the scuffle with the U, including the 12-3 loss to Wake Forest, where the FSU defense held its ground.

In the game against Miami, the 'Noles cut down on the penalties yet lacked the dominance they'd shown against Colorado, another formidable opponent on their schedules, after leading 24-3 at the half in Miami.

If the young O-line plays as well as it had since the loss to WF, though, rolling into Raleigh should be a rollable joint, and they should smoke 'em with a good defense! Go 'Noles!
