It’s a major litmus test for the true progress of the Seminoles, who are 2-0 for the first time since 2016. FSU has gone 4-2 vs. Louisville in that time period, with head coach Mike Norvell currently holding an 0-2 record vs. the Cardinals.
Ahead of the matchup, Florida State released its projected depth chart. Overall things look the same. With exception to a slight shake up on the offensive line with Bless Harris having gone down with a season-ending injury.
