Florida State Seminoles
If you’re local hung a number in the Florida State and Delaware State game, hopefully you laid the points with the ‘Noles. FSU whacked DSU, 77–6. And now we’re back to real football this week as Florida State heads to the Swamp.
If Florida State loses this game, it will finish below .500 and miss a bowl game. So while neither team has played very well this season, the rivalry will be alive and well in Week 12.
James Blackmon only threw 15 times in last week’s blowout. He completed 11 passes for 179 yards and three touchdowns. He hasn’t completed more than 18 passes in any start since his first one against North Carolina State back in September.
The Seminoles would prefer that Blackmon doesn’t have to throw much against Florida. They will try to establish their running game early and often to control the ball in what will likely be a fairly defensive-minded game. Cam Akers had a light game last week, too. He only carried it nine times and scored once. He should be ready for a big workload in his first taste of the rivalry game.
Florida was on upset alert last week against a feel-good UAB team but the Gators squashed the Blazers before there would be any concern of the 10-point underdogs biting late. The Gators won 36–7 en route to an easy cover.
UF rushed the ball 50 times for 257 yards and its defense was sensational. There wasn’t a 100-yard rusher in the game but three carried it at least 11 times for between 78 and 89 yards. That defense held UAB scoreless for three quarters and forced four turnovers, leading to easy points. It also stuffed the UAB running attack. The Blazers gained three yards on 18 carries — as in, a yard for every six carries.
Feleipe Franks completed half of his passes, two for touchdowns, without an interception but he wasn’t very efficient in opponent territory and the red zone, in particular. As a result, Florida settled for five field goals, which didn’t come back to hurt.
Which team will control the line of scrimmage? Both sides have concern at quarterback so it will likely come down to the trenches.

Free Week 13 NCAA Football Pick: Florida State gets the better of UF at the line of scrimmage.
That, ultimately, will be the difference in a matchup that has seen much better quarterback play over the years. This will be a bit of an ugly, grind it out game that FSU wins by a field goal.

But it won’t be enough to cover. I’ll take the five points at home.
