With a 59-3 win over Wake Forest, Florida State set two records in one game. The first being the amount of points scored in Wake Forest’s stadium. The previous record was 56 points set in 1994. Jameis Winston had two touchdowns in just a little over two quarters, adding to his Heisman like stats.
But the offense was not the only one putting up big points. The defense tied Florida States record of interceptions in a game, 6. Nate Andrews returning one of them for 56 yards. The defense also scored on Jalen Ramsey’s fumble recovery. A defense that can score is always a good sign especially towards the end of the year.
Big games are determined by big special teams plays. Although Florida State was projected to win their special teams came to play. Late in the game Levonte Whitifiled took one back 97 yards on spectacular return. Plays like that could end up being the difference in a big game for the Seminoles.
After watching this game do the Seminoles deserve to be number 1? The answer to that will be determined by how well the Crimson Tide play tonight against LSU. With all the media tension that Nick Saban has been under can the Tigers pull off the upset and boost Florida State up to number 1?
