The NCAA season is finally here and we have a Saturday filled with college football. In this game the Boise State Broncos and the Florida State Seminoles face off on a neutral field.
Even though it is a neutral field, it’s in Jacksonville, so this is basically a home game for the Seminoles.
Boise State Broncos
The Boise State Broncos come into this season just outside the top 25 and they are hoping by the end of the season, or after this game they will be back in the rankings.
The Broncos don’t rebuild, but they are having to replace their starting quarterback and starting running back from last season.
At quarterback it will be true freshman Hank Bachmeier who earned the starting job and he is going to have a lot of pressure going against the Seminoles in his first career start.
On the defensive side the Broncos are good and return eight starters from last year. The star is outside linebacker Curtis Weaver who very well could end up as an All American.
If they wan to win this game they are probably going to have to lean on the defense and their experience to have success.
Florida State Seminoles
On the other side of this matchup is the Florida State Seminoles who are hoping to have a lot better season after they struggled last season.
They have hired offensive coordinator Kendal Briles who has been known for having elite offenses, and they hope that will happen again this year.
James Blackman will be the starting quarterback this year for the Seminoles and he has shown some flashes of how good he can be. Last season he threw for 510 yards, five touchdowns, and one interception.
The Seminoles over the years have been known for a great defense, but last year that wasn’t the case. They had the worst pass defense in the entire ACC last year.
This season it’s going to be important that the defense shows out a little better and the offense doesn’t turn the ball over as much as they did last year.
