Could the 2013 Florida State Seminoles go down as the most dominant team in the BCS era?
"Could," of course, is the operative word here, because the Seminoles have some heavy lifting to do. This team takes on the No. 20 Duke Blue Devils in Charlotte to lock up a BCS National Championship Game berth. Then, with a 13-0 record, Florida State would of course have to win in Pasadena to be in the same clubhouse and conversations as the other all-time greats.
There have been nine undefeated BCS champions, and teams like the 2002 Miami Hurricanes and 2005 USC Trojans just missed out on being back-to-back champions by losing close title games. Dominance starts with going unblemished. Truly dominant teams don't stall in big moments. Truly dominant teams show up every Saturday and finish the drill.
Currently, the Seminoles have both the highest points-for average and the highest average margin of victory among those nine champions. Jimbo Fisher's team, however, also is tied with USC for the least amount of opponents ranked when played, although the 'Noles will run that total to five in the final two games, putting them right in line with the other champions.
