Last game of the year. It’s ok to be emotional. Florida State had a few disappointing losses this year including a blowout early against Louisville and two heartbreaking losses to Clemson and UNC. However, there’s been plenty to be happy about. Including continued dominance over rivals Florida and Miami.

Florida State closes the season with unfamiliar foe Michigan. The Florida State defense has done very well against QBs that aren’t a dual threat. The ‘Noles lead the nation in sacks per game. Unfortunately for a ‘Nole offensive line that has been shaky this year, the Wolverines come in second. Are we in for a hard hitting, defensive game? Let’s hope so.
