Florida State vs. Bethune-Cookman 6:00 PM
Watch On: ESPN 3
Listen: 'Nole Radio Affiliates
The Spread: Florida State opened as a 39 point favorite.
The Weather: 60% chance of rain. Looks like weather might be a problem, especially later in the game. Bring your ponchos.
Florida State has another tune up game this Saturday. It will be the last before the 'Noles get back into conference play. This game is all about staying healthy and creating functional depth. If everything goes well in the first half, the back ups should have plenty of snaps.
Eddie Goldman and Christian Jones both have a one game suspension. Goldman's absence will mean more early snaps for Demonte McAllister. Terrance Smith and Reggie Northrup will be worth watching as they fill in for Christian Jones. Tre Jackson will be back on the field after an ankle injury suffered against Pitt sidelined him in game two.
Be sure to read the game preview and prediction.
Ingram Smith and Bud Elliott return with the Tomahawk Nation podcast to discuss Florida State after its 62-7 win over Nevada.
Florida State isn't the only team with a tuneup game today. A quick glance at the noon and afternoon games reveals a lot of, well, football and I guess we'll watch it. Florida does play Tennessee. Tennessee doesn't have a victory over Florida in 8 years.* Don't expect that to change today.
Wake and Maryland will be worth keeping an eye on. Georgia Tech plays UNC at noon. While FSU doesn't play either, this is a big game for the Coastal division.
This is your pregame, noon/afternoon, post FSU game, game thread.
