Florida State quieted the noise surrounding its horrendous start to the season after beating Louisville last Saturday. Willie Taggart's coaching hot seat got a little cooler for the time being. After all, winning typically cures all.
But the Seminoles need to keep winning and gain momentum to stay out of the spotlight. This week, they'll host the NC State Wolfpack in an important ACC contest.
The Wolfpack head into this game with a 3-1 record which includes wins over: Eastern Carolina, Western Carolina and Ball State. Their lone loss came at the hands of West Virginia. NC State doesn't necessarily have a signature win, but that could change on Saturday.
FSU has looked great at times, horrible during others. The Seminoles are talented, but a lack of discipline mixed with coaching blunders plagues any momentum and success. But last week, FSU played good football in a 34-23 win over Louisville.
Can the Seminoles continue that momentum on Saturday?
Here's everything you need to know about Saturday's contest:
Game Time: 7:30 p.m. ET
Spread: Florida State -6.5
Announcers: Dave O’Brien, Tim Hasselbeck, Lericia Harris
Will NC State pull off the upset? Or can Florida State win its second straight?
Florida State-NC State kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ACCN.
