This week’s key matches: Florida State at Boston College


Florida State enters this week’s game against Boston College with a hard-earned victory over rival Miami last week. It was a game full of ups and downs at the end with Noles dominating late in the final seconds. Boston College has won two games in a row after slipping four games with its latest victory over Georgia Tech. The overall record stands at the moment with a 12-5 series lead for FSU and the Seminoles winning their last two games against the Eagles.

Florida State (4-6) will face Boston College (6-4) on Saturday noon EST on ACC. Here are three main encounters to watch as Noles looks to stay in the hunt for a winning game this weekend.

1. Knowles’ attack dents Boston College’s defense

FSU’s running game looked better this past weekend against Canes than it did the previous two weeks. While QB Jordan Travis ended up throwing massive passes late in the game, the accelerating attack was consistent. You said this will be key for the rest of the season because this offense will only last as long as a running game. Boston College has been referred to as a turn but it doesn’t break the defense and is decent across the board. Georgia Tech managed to rush out for 213 yards and that’s good for Noles. The Eagles give up about 176 yards a game on the ground and the Fifa should be able to find some success in running the ball this weekend.
