Florida State Looks to Stay Perfect
We have reached Week 4 of the 2022 college football season, and the action is really going to start heating up throughout the country. The Florida State Seminoles host the Boston College Eagles on Saturday night and it’s a big game for the hosts.
Boston College enters this game with a record of 1-2, but does have a bit of momentum. The Eagles picked up a blowout win over Maine in Week 3, but they now have to prove that they can go on the road and compete against a good team.
Florida State comes into Week 4 with a perfect 3-0 record, and that includes a pair of impressive road wins. The Seminoles feel like a contender in the ACC, but they can’t afford a mistake as they have in years past.
The college football odds for this game on Saturday night have the Florida State Seminoles as 17½-point favorites over Boston College.
Eagles Grounded Through Three Games
If the Boston College Eagles are going to pull off this upset on Saturday night, then they have to find a way to get the rushing attack going. Boston College is averaging just 48 rushing yards and it’s putting way too much pressure on the passing attack.
Quarterback Phil Jurkovec has thrown for 738 yards and six touchdowns through three games, but he won’t be able to do it alone on Saturday night. Boston College also needs to run the football to keep the defense off the field.
The Eagles are holding opponents to 22 points per game, but those numbers are a bit deceiving after a dominant performance in Week 3. Boston College has struggled to defend the run and that might be a problem in this one.
Seminoles Scoring Some Points
Quarterback Jordan Travis was injured in the Week 3 win at Louisville and his status for this matchup is not known at this time. Head coach Mike Norvell can turn to Tate Rodemaker again in this matchup.
“I knew we could win with Tate,” Norvell said after the Week 3 win.
Florida State Seminoles comes into this game scoring 35.3 points per game and has been doing it with a balanced attack. The Seminoles love to throw the football, but they are also averaging 242 rushing yards per game.
The Florida State defense came up with some big stops in that win over Louisville and that unit will need to play well again. Look for the Seminoles to be aggressive in an attempt to get pressure on Jurkovec.
