No. 3 FSU vs. North Carolina State, 3:30, Ch. 28, 820-AM
Florida State (6-0, 4-0 ACC) is ranked No. 2 in the BCS standings, so a possible birth in the national championship game is at stake every week for the Seminoles. They not only need to win, but do so impressively. The Wolfpack (3-3, 0-3) seeks its first ACC win and third against Florida State in the past four seasons. N.C. State QB Brandon Mitchell returns from a broken left foot sustained in the opener and could use as much help from the offensive line as possible. FSU has one of the best collections of defensive backs in the country with Lamarcus Joyner, Terrence Brooks, Jalen Ramsey and P.J. Williams. Mitchell will already have a challenge without constant pressure up front.
Watch out for … The Wolfpack has allowed the second-most sacks (18) in the ACC. The Seminoles' defensive line is coming off its best game of the season and the front seven accounted for three of the four sacks against Clemson QB Tajh Boyd.
