Florida State football, recruiting news: FSU ready for BC's physical play?

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

- Brendan Sonnone of the Orlando Sentinel discusses how FSU is combating the physical play that they will deal with tonight in Chestnut Hill.

There are very little frills when it comes to the Eagles’ offense, which is predicated on a power-running attack. This game, which will be broadcast on ESPN, will test a Seminoles squad that has flexed its physicality so far this season.

“Boston College has always been known for their size, running the ball with a big back. You’ve just got to get ready, strap it up and just play ball,” FSU defensive lineman Giorgio Newberry said. “A lot more physical [than previous teams FSU has faced.] They bring extra linemen into the game and sometimes they run trick plays. Best man wins.”

- Tom D'Angelo, writing for the Miami Herald, talks on Dalvin Cook's current workhouse role with Florida State.

- Chris Nee of Noles 247 expounds upon the pros and cons of BC's soft schedule through the first two weeks of the season.

First-year starter, sophomore Darius Wade has played barely a full game of action through two starts, going 17-for-30 for 185 yards and a pair of touchdowns. There is simply a lack of film on the left-handed signal-caller to evaluate who he is. The opponents he has faced also bring no measuring stick to what he is capable of doing.

Through their two victories, Boston College has spread the wealth – 11 different players have registered a carry and 16 different players have caught a reception.

Recruiting: 2016 5* recruit Shavar Manuel, the #3 defensive tackle in the country, announced his official visits for the coming weeks and included among the list of upcoming visits is Florida State. Manuel's crystal ball prediction currently sits at 73% for Florida State.
