We've got Ohio State and Miami this weekend plus LSU and Mississippi State on the tube tonight but there main course of the casual and die hard college football fan alike is in Tallahassee. The top ranked Oklahoma Sooners travel across the country to the capital of Florida to take on the Seminoles. Florida State enters as the fifth ranked team but they are also a 3 or 3.5 point underdog depending on who you pull your lines from. This game is the return trip for the Sooners who hosted Florida State and thoroughly spanked the bottoms of the young Noles team 47-17.
To preview this game we get two of the best from each camps; Bud Elliott for the FSU side from Tomahawk Nation and Allen Kenney of Blatant Homerism and the sweet blog The Crystal Ball Run. I play a little moderator here as the two factions square off in a solid discussion we kick off by discussing the hoopla surrounding the game.
Next we get into the match ups of the game and discuss what really matters, you know, on the field play. When Florida State has the ball watch for how OU defends against some designed quarterback runs, something they have struggled with in the past and an ace Jimbo Fisher has kept up his sleeve thus far. When OU has the ball look for one of the nation's best QB-WR combo, Landry Jones and Ryan Broyles, to really tax the Florida State defense and their discipline.
To wrap up we go a little rapid fire as Bud and Allen take their time talking about players that have a chance to stand out, guys who need to make a play, what the key to an OU win is, how FSU can position themselves to win the ball game and what is their most intriguing part of the special teams facet for this game. Yes. We made sure to work in special teams.
