It’s finally here, the game everyone has been waiting for, Florida State vs. Delaware State.
The Seminoles enter at 3-6, and i’m obligated to point out again that the ’Noles need to win the final three games of the season to reach a bowl. Fresh off a loss at Clemson, FSU does not play a team currently over .500 for the rest of the season. Florida State’s opponent on Saturday, Delaware State, is 2-8 on the season. Both of DSU’s victories came in the past four weeks. The Hornets have played one power five opponent this season, West Virginia on the road, and were defeated 59-16.

Florida State QB James Blackman is coming off his worst game of the season in terms of accuracy. He completed just 13 of 32 passes for 208 yards. The true freshman has not thrown multiple touchdowns in a game since October in a loss vs. Louisville.
Delaware State has not had much success at QB. Daniel Epperson, who has taken the majority of the snaps, has thrown 6 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on the season. He did not play in DSU’s last game with Gilbert Rivera getting those opportunities. In the Hornets’ last game, a victory over Howard, the senior threw for 119 yards on 12-20 passing with a touchdown and a pick.
Florida State will have an opportunity to rise in the takeaway ranks among FBS teams. Currently, the Seminoles are second to last in that category, only ahead of Middle Tennessee State.
