    FSU Overview

    One week after coming back to beat Ole Miss, the ‘Noles had an easy time with short-handed Charleston Southern in a 52-8 victory. Redshirt freshman quarterback Deondre Francois threw for 262 yards and three touchdowns one week after he became the first ACC freshman to throw for over 400 yards in his first game. Going back to the Ole Miss game and the first four drives against Charleston Southern, Francois led the offense to points on 13 straight possessions. He is also taking care of the football, with only one interception after two weeks. However, the ‘Noles suffered a big loss when sophomore safety Derwin James suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter and now defensive end Josh Sweat could miss the game.

    Louisville Overview

    What can you say about Lamar Jackson? The electric dual-threat quarterback in enjoying a scorching hot start to the season. One week after lighting up Charlotte, the sophomore ran for four touchdowns and threw for another, and the Cardinals routed Syracuse 62-28 in their ACC opener. Jackson’s night included a 72-yard scoring pass to James Quick on the game’s first play from scrimmage as well as a 72-yard touchdown run. He also had long throws of 61 yards to Jaylen Smith and 55 yards to Jamari Staples. Jackson finished with 199 yards on 21 carries and was 20 of 39 through the air for 411 yards with one interception. Louisville set a school record and came within 13 yards of the ACC record with 845 total yards. The Cards, though, will find it difficult to average 10.4 yards per play against Florida State as it did against the ‘Cuse.

    Matchup Advantages


    Offense:
    Even. Jackson and the Cards are on fire, although FSU has Dalvin Cook, who could be the difference-maker.


    Defense:
    Even. The Cards returned a boatload of starters from that side of the ball, led by Devonte Fields.


    Special Teams:
    FSU. Any program with an Aguayo at kicker has the edge.


    Coaching:
    Even. Jimbo Fisher has won a national championship, but Bobby Petrino can put together as good of an offense as any head coach.


    Intangibles:
    Louisville. It will be a rabid home crowd.

    FSU vs. Louisville Prediction

    As long as Louisville does not get too amped up, this game should go down to the wire. Francois and Jackson will make their share of plays through the air, but the difference is Cook. He is an elite talent that the ‘Noles will look to in the fourth quarter when they need a big first down. FSU remains unbeaten, but it’s a close one.

    Final Score: FSU 30, Louisville 27
