Chick-Fil-A Bowl: No. 23 Florida State 26, No. 20 South Carolina 17 EqPts: Florida State 18.9, South Carolina 14.5 T/O Pts: Florida State +19.7 Florida State > South Carolina +24.1 Congratulations, Florida State! This bowl win (which the stats thought should have resulted in much larger than a nine-point margin) all but solidified your status, along with Texas A&M, as Next Year's Nebraska, the team every analyst picks as their "dark horse" title contender ... making you no longer a dark horse. Nebraska took the honors in 2010, Ole Miss and Oklahoma State in 2009, and Clemson and Texas Tech in 2008. Almost every one of those teams failed to live up to expectations, of course, but Florida State should be well-stocked with both experience and improved recruiting. Between the 'Noles and Texas A&M, Florida State will likely find itself on much more solid footing in 2011, and with a much less difficult conference schedule (though they do have to deal with both Oklahoma and Florida in non-conference play). http://www.footballoutsiders.com/varsity-numbers/2011/varsity-numbers-auf-wiedersehen-2010
