Through two games, they have been more than impressive. They have been fierce.
While much of the conversation about the FSU football team has surrounded the offense, what with its old weapons (Dalvin Cook) and its new one (Deondre Francois), the rock for the Seminoles has been its defense, in particular, its defensive lline.
Just Wednesday, in fact, Bleacher Report ranked the Seminoles fourth in the country among defensive lines,
Well, guess what. If FSU is going to say undefeated, it will have to be at least third. Maybe second. Heck, nothing wrong with first, either.
This week, FSU plays Louisville and dynamic quarterback Lamar Jackson, who may be the most impressive player in the country after two weeks. Jackson has led Louisville to an average of 66 points a game and 754 yards per game. The Cards are averaging 9.9 yards per play.
Jackson is the leader. He has 1,015 total yards, second in the nation. He leads all quarterbacks in rushing and in plays of more than 20 yards.
That puts the pressure on DeMarcus Walker, Josh Sweat, Derrick Nnadi and DeMarcus Christmas. That’s the heart of FSU, Jimbo Fisher’s team.
A good game Saturday, and FSU’s line will be even more touted. Otherwise, it could be trouble.
