NC State at Florida State

Football:

The Florida State defense is feeling more confident and aggressive, and ready to embrace the opportunity that comes with taking on No. 2 Clemson this weekend. After holding three consecutive opponents below their season rushing average but allowing its first three opponents to score 111 points combined, it’ll be interesting to see which defense shows up.

If you want to watch all of Florida State media availability from yesterday, including Marvin Wilson, Amari Gainer and Stanford Samuels III, you can head here.

PFF has both James Blackman and Alex Hornibrook ranked as the No. 51 quarterback(s) in college football:

Hornibrook currently has the nation’s highest adjusted completion percentage (92.4%, min 50 dropbacks) while Blackman’s 74.4% is still a top-50 mark among qualified quarterbacks.

If you want some further reading about the potential name, image and likeness rights benefits for Florida, here you go. (Content warning: you’re going to see Dan Mullen’s face immediately.)

N’Kosi Perry, who I am furious didn’t go to any school but Miami so I could make my Twitter name a pun of his, will get the start for the Hurricanes this weekend against Virginia.

Basketball:

Here’s a good one-on-one interview with senior Trent Forrest, speaking on Devin Vassell, guarding Ja Morant and how his toe is feeling post-surgery.

Soccer:

Florida State soccer won its first four ACC games for the fourth time in program history, and will have a chance to match or best its total number of ACC wins (5) this weekend in a pair of top 20 games, with No. 20 Virginia Tech on the road on Thursday and No. 1 Virginia at home on Sunday.

Other Sports:

FSU’s Master Craftsman Studio, the only university program of its kind in the United States, celebrated 20 years yesterday.
