Florida St over DUKE by 10

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 5 Octoberama Lts Football Special! -

The Blue Dev­ils have im­proved their stat sheet rather nicely this sea­son, out­yard­ing foes by 116 YPG be­hind a 300-yard de­fense, but con­sec­u­tive losses have left them at just 1-2 in the ACC Coastal Di­vi­sion, mir­ror­ing FSU’s 1-2 mark in the At­lantic Di­vi­sion. Un­for­tu­nately for head Devil David Cut­cliffe, his team draws the short straw to­day, host­ing the tarred-and­feath­ered Semi­noles. For a quick com­par­i­son against Mi­ami, Duke was out­gained by the Canes two weeks ago, while the Semi­noles out­yarded Mi­ami by 69 yards last Saturday. With that last sec­ond-loss to Mi­ami in Tal­la­has­see, the Noles are now 1-3 on the sea­son for the first time since 1975. The kick­ing game is in sham­bles (No. 125 in net punt­ing), giv­ing away valu­able field po­si­tion, but the says they can take so­lace in know­ing they held the Canes to a sea­son low 337 yards, and have now held three of their four foes to sea­son-low yardage. Also, if the last two drives against Mi­ami are any in­di­ca­tion, QB James Black­man just may be start­ing to fig­ure things out. Ex­pect Jimbo and crew to de­liver a mes­sage to­day.
