The Florida State Seminoles look for a rebound performance as they take on FCS opponent Samford on Saturday night.
The Seminoles were knocked around in primetime during their spotlight game against the Hokies in their season opener.
If Samford has one thing going for them entering as big underdogs here, it’s that the Seminoles are certainly on a huge low.
Samford does have a lot going for them though. This team returned 10 of their 11 starters on the offensive end and it certainly showed in their season opener on August 30th.
Samford rolled over a Division II opponent, dropping 66 points in the victory.
Senior QB Devlin Hodges is the one to watch for here. He was dominant in his season-opening performance, tossing for 330 yards and 5 touchdowns.
The success offensively is nothing new to him as he threw for 3,983 yards last season with 31 touchdowns.
WR Kelvin McKnight will be his main target here on Saturday. McKnight caught a pair of touchdowns to go along with 119 yards receiving.
Florida State Seminoles
In one of the biggest letdowns in Week 1, the Seminoles struggled in a stand-alone, National TV game on Monday night against the Hokies,
Things took a complete turn for the worse right from the first drive as they simply found themselves consistently starting inside their own 10. Along with that, the turning point game in the 2nd quarter when a touchdown wasn’t challenged by Florida State. The ultimate outcome was a field goal and the only points they would score.
A blocked punt for a TD and failing to score inside the 5 in the 2nd half also resulted in a flock of boo birds as it was a nightmare Week 1.
Deondre Francois missed most of last season with a knee injury and his rust certainly showed. The offense turned it over 5 times and he struggled to get anything going himself.
FSU gained no momentum offensively and they’ll have to regroup now.
Expect them to work harder to establish a run game early on, to take some of the pressure off Francois.
Florida State faced Samford back in 2010, which resulted in a 59-6 win.
