Football:

Ja’Khi Douglas has stepped up on and off the field:

FSU’s line will need to be much better tomorrow night than it was last Saturday.

Thursday isn’t the only day with holiday football; Black Friday features some exciting college match-ups.

But of course the rivalry Saturday on the final week of the regular season is the most anticipated Saturday of the year.

Hope for chalk on Saturday.

Florida State wins if: With a new starting quarterback in Tate Rodemaker, coach Mike Norvell has to call a game that will allow Rodemaker to feel comfortable from the start. Relying on Trey Benson and the run game will be a good start, but it is also important for Rodemaker not to force the issue. Florida State is 11-0 in part because it has protected the football. The Seminoles have lost only five turnovers, fewest in the nation. With the skill players he has around him, all Rodemaker needs is a little time to get the ball where Keon Coleman and Johnny Wilson can get it. Tight end Jaheim Bell could also be instrumental in the passing game. Defensively, Florida State must stop the run — the strength of the Florida offense. This is an area where the Seminoles have lacked consistency, allowing 4 yards per carry. The Gators have a new starting quarterback, too, in Max Brown, so putting pressure on him will be a must. — Andrea Adelson

Recruiting:

On3 National reporter, Chad Simmons, broke down Cai Bates’ recruitment where FSU still looks to be in very good position to land the top-100 recruit.

FSU can be picky with who it has left on its board.

On3 updates its 2024 rankings and Armondo Blount, five-star FSU commitment is now a five-star recruit and 20th overall after reclassifying.
