Florida State entered Saturday’s game on a 3-game win streak and now 4. While on this win streak, the Noles has scored 35+ points in each and keeping all opponents under 20 points.
Florida State dominated Louisiana with an offensive attack led by the running game. The Noles offense combined for 254 yards and 5 touchdowns on the ground.
Quarterback Jordan Travis had a quiet day through the air. Travis went 9/14 for 112 yards and 1 touchdown. Mike Norvell has the FSU program looking strong.
The Noles take on the Florida Gators in the annual rivalry game. More importantly, this will be a recruiting game for both programs. As Florida State seems to have hit their stride to finish the year off, Florida once again stumbled today.
Vanderbilt took the Gators down in an error filled game for the Gators. The Gators could have been overlooking the Commodores and it ultimately cost them.
However, this Florida vs FSU game will be important for the future of both programs.
While Florida’s head coach Bill Napier works on establishing his program, Florida State head coach Mike Norvell is well on his way. This past weekend he flipped 4-star Ohio State quarterback commit Brock Glen. A stunning flip after Florida States difficult time recruiting a quarterback.
In this match-up, the focus should be surrounding the future players of both programs. A victory by either program will be a leg up in recruiting, but how the game is played will determine how successful the recruiting season will be.
Our eyes are locked in on the two future Heisman Trophy candidates in Florida State quarterback Jordan Travis and Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson.
Depending on how well this game is played by either player, the play of either player will decide the fate of this game and a storyline for 2023. Ultimately, Saturday’s grudge match may very well set the stage for next season’s playoff qualifier.
