In what’s already been a wild and unpredictable start to the college football season, the Florida State Seminoles should not be forgotten. Not yet, anyway.
If that wasn’t clear prior to their demolition of USF Saturday, then it should be now. With RB Dalvin Cook running past, around and through the Bulls pitiful gap control and tackling to the tune of 267 yards and 2 TD’s, the Noles eventually put up a staunch 55 points and are back on track at 3-1.

Be encouraged, FSU fans seeing those kind of numbers from that kind of big play weapon, mean you have hope for 2016.
Now, no one is suggesting that Louisville and Clemson aren’t both in the driver’s seat in the Atlantic Division of the ACC right now, but guess what? They play each other Saturday in a humongous showdown to start October, and obviously, when it’s over one of them will have a loss.
That’s where the Noles have opportunity, especially, if the winner is Clemson. Then, FSU is back to controlling it’s own destiny to get at least a 3-way tie in the Atlantic later in the season. Three games starting with North Carolina this Saturday, stand in the way of the Seminoles being 6-1 when they host the Tigers on October 29th.
Yes, there’s the huge rivalry game with the Canes in two weeks, but Wake Forest is the third game and FSU will win that no matter what. 6-1 should be attainable, then a week off and the huge showdown, at home, with Clemson who will potentially be unbeaten and in first place.
So, fear not Seminoles fans. Beat North Carolina, have the Tigers take care of the U of L and everything you want is back on.
The division, the ACC Title and relevance for those three Holiest of Holy words, College Football Playoff are within play.
