FSU Wins in Week 0

FSU defeated Duquesne, 47-7. After an hour and half weather delay, the ‘Noles jumped out to a big first half lead, leading the Dukes 26-0 at the half. Jordan Travis led the Seminoles in limited action, going 11-15 for 207 yards. FSU’s backfield seems to be picking up where they left off towards the end of last season; three backs went over 100 years rushing. Travis Ward ran for 127 yards while Benson added 105 yards and Toafilli rushed for 101 yards.

FSU’s defense also had a great opening night, holding Duquesne’s offense to 163 total yards.

Takeaways From Saturday…

1. FSU’s offense AND defensive lines are much better than last years… and it’s not even close. An actual push occurs. And I know that it was an FCS team, but keep in mind that Jacksonville State, another FCS team shocked the Seminoles in Doak Campbell last year. There was no push last year. This is a positive sign.

2. Receivers not as good as advertised. The quarterback had time provided by that offensive line but far too few times did the receivers get space between them and their defenders. A young group with some transfers still need more work.

3. Jordan Travis better stay healthy. Tate Rodemaker is  a year away from being able to contribute. In his limited playing, he went  2-6 for 15 yards and an interception that lead to a Duquesne touchdown.

Next up for the Seminoles is LSU next Sunday night in New Orleans at a “neutral sight” game.
