Five days. There are only five days left until the #3 Florida State Seminoles meet the top-ranked team in the nation, Alabama Crimson Tide. This is quite possibly the most anticipated regular season in college football. However, the Seminoles aren’t letting anything rattle their confidence.

While the school’s twitter has been active releasing promotional and hype videos, head coach Jimbo Fisher has kept his players from posting anything on social media relating to the game. It is important for coach Fisher to keep the team focused heading into this meeting of titans.

Florida State will arguably be the toughest opponent that Alabama faces in the regular season, and they won’t go down lightly. The Noles’ defense is probably one of the most improved in the nation. Led by a returning Derwin James, Florida State plays with incredible toughness on defense, something Alabama hasn’t in recent years from anyone not named LSU or Clemson.

That’s why the Noles have to continue their preparation of a solid offense to pair up with the strong Bama defense. Deondre Francois has been overlooked as a potential Heisman candidate, but he could change that Saturday night with the performance of his life and a possible win.

There is much at stake for the Noles heading into Saturday. The intense pregame preparation won’t stop until kickoff from Atlanta at 8pm.
