Football:

Louisville will be the host of College Gameday this weekend as the Cardinals are set to host the Seminoles in a clash of top ten teams.

Playing a FCS team usually means lots of reps for the younger players on the roster and the youngsters on FSU’s roster took advantage of their moment.

Florida State moved up to No. 2 in the country in both the Coaches & the AP Poll.

ESPN’s FPI now views Louisville, not Clemson, as the toughest matchup on the schedule.

Turns out it is now No. 10 Louisville that presents the biggest challenge to an undefeated regular season for No. 2 Florida State, according to FPI. The Seminoles are given a 55 percent chance to win on the road, which is about 15 points less than two weeks ago. Fifth-ranked Clemson is given a 24 percent chance to beat FSU.

David Hale continues to project the Seminoles to the playoffs in his bowl projections.

Check out who made Barrett Sallee’s Heisman top 5:

Derwin James injured his knee in the third quarter against Charleston Southern and as we await results from his MRI many are questioning Coach Fisher’s decision to play the starters into the third quarter against a FCS team. The Democrat’s Corey Clark explains why there’s nothing wrong with Derwin or any starter being in the game at that point.

Before he hurt his knee James had only been on the field for 29 plays. That’s not a lot of work. Not for a true sophomore. And not for a defense that still has plenty to figure out in coverage and communication. Seriously, has there ever been a receiver more open in Doak Campbell Stadium history than that Charleston Southern kid on the touchdown pass?

Do you agree with Corey?

In case you missed it; here’s what we learned on offense & defense from the Charleston Southern victory.

Week 2 of College Football looked crappy on paper but turned out to be pretty awesome.

Another Friday night; another ridiculous DJ Matthews play; this time he reverses field for the score:
