Florida State’s comeback victory on the road was definitely impressive but the big question now, pointed out by Andrea Adelson of ESPN, is if the Seminoles can carry this positive momentum forward.
Some might wonder whether Florida State can use this game as a jumping-off point to get to double-digit wins again. How can the Seminoles replicate the passion and enthusiasm this Saturday against Wake Forest? After all, the desire we saw was rooted in what it fundamentally means to play at Florida State: beating Miami, no matter what.
But it’s also true the toughest part of the season is over. And there are two pretty big rivalry games awaiting: Clemson on Oct. 29 and Florida on Nov. 26. There’s still plenty left for Florida State to play for, as we saw on a muggy South Florida Saturday night.
DeMarcus Walker, the emotional leader of the FSU defense, led the way with his play in the win over Miami, in this story by the Orlando Sentinel’s Safid Deen.

Although Florida State’s 2016 season has not gotten off to a great start, things could always be worse. Just ask Michigan State.
Dalvin Cook made a reappearance in Stewart Mandel’s latest Heisman candidate list released after this week’s games, coming in at No. 4.
Florida State RB Dalvin Cook
Most wrote him off after a rough Week 3 against Louisville, but since then, Cook has racked up rushing/receiving yards of 329 (against USF), 246 (against UNC) and 209 (against Miami)
Exactly how good has Cook’s season been so far? This tweet puts it into perspective.

Florida State opened as 25-point favorites over Wake Forest in Vegas. Do you think that line is right or does it need some adjusting?
