College football scouting report: Florida State Seminoles vs. N.C. State Wolfpack, noon Saturday, ESPNU, 1040-AM
The FSU team so many had written off two weeks ago appears to be putting together a surge. Going for a three-game winning streak, the Seminoles (4-3, 2-2 ACC) have blown out ACC foes Duke and Maryland by a combined 82-32. The Wolfpack (4-3, 1-2) is surging, too, with consecutive wins over Central Michigan and Virginia. CB David Amerson has eight interceptions, and QB Mike Glennon has 19 touchdowns. If Atlantic Division rival Clemson loses to Georgia Tech, the winner of this game will still be alive in the division race. FSU leads N.C. State 21-10 all time. The teams are 5-5 in the past 10 meetings.
Watch out for …
Back-to-back 200-yard rushing games have given FSU the offensive balance it had been lacking. Can Devonta Freeman and Jermaine Thomas help make it three in a row?
