College Football Week 11: #8 Florida State At Virginia Tech
|Florida State’s shocking loss to North Carolina State a month ago continues to make you scratch your head. Jimbo Fisher’s squad has dominated every other team on its schedule.||Coaching||Frank Beamer is allowed to have one bad season every now and then, right? The Hokies are just 4-5, meaning their eight-year run of 10-win seasons will come to an end. If VT doesn’t rebound next season there is cause for concern.|
|FSU fields the top offense in the country as far as yards per play. The Seminoles are coming off a bye week; only rust can slow down this unit. E.J Manuel is the second-most efficient quarterback in the country.||Offense||The Hokies have been inconsistent on offense all season. Logan Thomas has been dangerous on the ground and through the air, at times, but he threw two interceptions and lost a fumble in last week’s 30-12 loss to Miami.|
|Guess what? The ’Noles also have the top defense in the country, giving up just 3.5 yards per play. The light schedule is certainly a big factor, but Virginia Tech doesn’t have the type of offense that will scare FSU.||Defense||VT has forced just 14 turnovers this season, not enough to offset its mediocre defense.|
|FSU has one of the most reliable kickers in the country and has been well above average on kickoffs and kickoff returns.||Special Teams||Given all of Virginia Tech’s struggles, perhaps the most surprising has been the special teams play. The Hokies allowed an 81-yard kickoff return, missed an extra point, and had a punt blocked last week.|
