Florida State is favored on Saturday, but it looks like they will be facing a much improved pass rush from the Louisville team they played last year:
Louisville needs two sacks against FSU to equal its total of QB sacks from all of 2018. Last year's team leader had 2.0 sacks. Four guys already have 2.0 sacks through three games.— Mark Ennis (@MarkEnnis) September 17, 2019
FSU running back Cam Akers has the respect of Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield, who called him one of the best backs in the country. (Also a great graphic from FSU—got to point it out when they are actually good!)

Ahead of their clash with the Cardinals, two defensive players swapped positions yesterday in practice with Leonard Warner moving to inside linebacker and Jaiden Lars Woodbey moving outside.
Florida State suffered a major blow to an already struggling defense with news that Joshua Kaindoh will be out for the season. Where do the Seminoles go from here, and who are the next guys up?
Most national outlets still have FSU bowling in December, with a possible matchup against a program they have a rich history with.
Have you listened to the latest Nolecast? Bud and Ingram go in depth on FSU’s loss to Virginia, discussing, among other things, why tempo on offense isn’t the defense’s problem.
FSU’s matchup against NC State now has a kickoff time and it is another game under the lights. Mark your calendars accordingly
FSU Soccer coach Mark Krikorian, who has lead the ’Noles to two national titles, has no interest in coaching the U.S. Women’s National Team:

The @FSUSoccer coach told me today that he has been approached multiple times about the position and that he's said each time that he isn't interested.https://t.co/cQlXvBg7HA
Not only is Warrick Dunn one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, he has everyday problems just like us:
Warrick Dunn's Home for the Holidays program helped family No. 171 today! Amazing, inspirational guy. I connected with WD via text Monday to ask about FSU-Virginia game/indirect snap. One problem. WD has Comcast and couldn't watch; Comcast hasn't picked up the ACC Network yet.— Jim Henry (@JimHenryTALLY) September 17, 2019
Jalen Ramsey could be on his way out in Jacksonville, and call me crazy, but he’s completely worth two first rounders:
Per rival clubs, the asking price for Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey is two first-round picks.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) September 17, 2019
That's a starting point. And added to what it'd cost to extend Ramsey, it's a lot. But it's not totally crazy, given what Seattle got for Frank Clark and Miami got for Laremy Tunsil.
Ramsey spoke to the media after reportedly requesting a trade, an it’s pretty simple: he wants to win:
