SEMINOLES SET TO TAKE ON NORTH CAROLINA STATE SATURDAY
TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA – The Florida State Seminoles will host to the North Carolina State Wolfpack in a primetime showdown commencing at 7:30 pm. on Saturday night.
The Friday Night Locker Room’s Sam Martello reported from Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee as the Seminoles prepare to host the North Carolina State on Saturday.
The Wolfpack, 3-1 after last week’s win over Ball State, has a new starting quarterback and a new offensive coordinator, but they’ve been able to find success on the ground, averaging more than 200 rushing yards per game.
“A team that loves to run the football,” Noles’ head coach Willie Taggart said. “They have some skills. I know they have a running back by committee, all those guys are pretty good.”
The Seminoles, however, have been pretty good against the run lately.
They held run-heavy Louisville to more than 100 yards beneath its season rushing average on Saturday, and, aside from some quarterback scrambles and broken plays, did a nice job keeping Virginia’s rushing attack under wraps, too.
“I think it has a lot to do with our guys getting comfortable with what we’re doing defensively,” Taggart said, “and now they’re able to play at a higher level than what they were before because they’re not thinking as much.”
Florida State will host the Wolfpack on in this Noles’ Atlantic Coast Conference game.
