First ACC game of the year for Florida State is a challenging one. Yes, Florida State hasn't lost to BC since 2009. However, the Eagles continually play Florida State is close, physical games. With re-engineered offensive lines for both teams, the contest may be decided by which team stays patient and makes the least mistakes. Florida State needs QB Everett Golson to settle in to this 'Nole offense and get comfortable. Even though his numbers got better in the second half last week against USF, there was still plenty to work on. Goals: As always - stay healthy, continue improving on special teams, create consistency in the run game on first down, don't turn the ball over, QB needs to make the right checks and complete the easy reads.
