Florida State has the rare opportunity for a winning streak as the come into Saturday afternoon’s tilt off an upset of #5 ranked North Carolina. The Seminoles are facing a Louisville team with just one win on the season.
The Cardinals have dropped four straight heading into Saturday’s home game. Louisville did play Notre Dame tough last week though, falling by the score of 12-7 on the road in South Bend as +15 underdogs.
Florida State Seminoles
Florida State came out of the gates with fury last week, taking a 31-7 lead into the half against a top 5 UNC team. The Seminoles getting shut out in the 2nd half of that game is concerning, but a win is a win.
QB Jordan Travis had two touchdown passes and another score on the ground last week. Travis has a 130 QB rating or better for three straight games, but is facing a Cardinals squad that played solid pass defense vs. the Irish.
Aside from FSU’s offense getting shut out in the 2nd half vs. the Tar Heels, their defense also gave up 21 unanswered points and a 374 yard passing game to Sam Howell.
The FSU defense was bowled over two weeks ago in their meeting with Notre Dame. The Irish amassed 353 yards rushing in that game, and Ian Book added two TD passes in the 42-26 ND win.
It was a moral victory last week for Louisville, holding the #3 team in the country to 12 points and just one TD but the defeat to Notre Dame still goes in the loss column.
The Cardinals did have a breakout game defensively vs. ND, holding Book to 11/19 for 106 yards. The Irish did amass 232 yards on the ground however.
The loss to the Irish still represented a nice bounce back game for the Cardinals after a 46-27 loss to Georgia Tech the week before. The Cardinals were outscored 32-6 in the second half vs. the Yellow Jackets.
The Florida State defense does have some holes, allowing 474 yards/game. For Louisville to take advantage though, they’ll need a better outing from QB Malik Cunningham, who tossed for just 132 yards vs. Notre Dame despite going 16/19.
