Watch: Florida State vs NC State Preview

A young cast in a tough environment

Florida State looks to be a brand new team coming into this week. Injuries to Devontay Love-Taylor, Marvin Wilson, and Tamorrion Terry mean that the ‘Noles will be missing their biggest stars for the rest of the season and might not ever get to see Wilson or Terry dress out in garnet and gold again. Couple that with the loss of James Blackman and the veteran leadership is whittling away from this team.

This means a young and inexperienced roster has to step into one of the most hostile environments for a FSU player to be: Carter Finley Stadium.

The NC State Wolfpack are what they’ve always been under head coach Dave Doeren. They are consistent and they are competitive. Neither their offense or their defense is going to blow you away but when they are combined they make for a team that can take Miami to the wire and beat a solid Pitt team.

Lets look at what they do specifically on the field to get a better understanding of what Mike Norvell and the Seminoles might do to game plan for Saturday.
