Video breakdown: Florida State vs Notre Dame game preview

How long can the Noles hold on?

NCAA Football: Camping World Bowl-Notre Dame vs Iowa State Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State is coming fresh off an electrifying victory against... Well it doesn’t matter who it was against. It was electrifying. They seem to have found their quarterback for at least the immediate future. Jordan Travis brings a new dimension to the quarterback position and dimensions are exactly what that position has been lacking for a while now.

On the other hand the Notre Dame Fighting Irish is primed to make another run at the playoffs. Their long time head coach Brian Kelly has one of his most talented teams in his tenure. Senior Quarterback Ian Book gets a lot of the attention but their secondary and offensive lines are things that Noles fans should aspiringly look to emulate.

However, no team of 18-22 year-olds is infallible*. Everyone makes mistakes. Are there any holes on their team that FSU can try to exploit to give them a chance on Saturday? How will their new offensive identity fare against a high caliber defense? It’s impossible to really know these answers. That’s why we play the game. But join me as I try to answer them as best I can.

I hope you enjoyed that video. Make sure to tell me why I’m wrong in the comments below.
