College football preview: No. 8 Florida State vs. Bethune-Cookman

No. 8 FSU vs. Bethune-Cookman, 6, 820-AM

The Seminoles (2-0) would like a decisive victory over the Division I-AA Wildcats (3-0). B-CU, playing FSU for the first time in school history, is off to its best start since 2010 after the program's first win against a I-A opponent last week, 34-13 over Florida International. The Wildcats have the No. 1 total defense (219.7 yards per game) in I-AA. Their challenge is to slow FSU redshirt freshman QB Jameis Winston and RBs Devonta Freeman, James Wilder and Karlos Williams. The Seminoles have the No. 7 total offense (575.0 yards per game) in I-A. FSU is 19-0 against I-AA teams since the divisions split in 1978.

Watch out for … Wilder, a former Plant High star, has yet to reach 100 yards rushing in a game this season. He needs 102 yards to join Freeman with 1,000 career yards rushing.
