Louisville will travel down to Tallahassee Saturday to face off against the Florida State Seminoles. FSU is 1-2 with losses to Boise and Virginia and had to survive a late comeback to Louisiana-Monroe. Allowing comebacks have been the theme for the Seminoles in 2019 as Boise came back to win, LA-Monroe nearly did… and UVA outscored FSU 21-7 in the 4th quarter to comeback and post the 7 point win.

There is a lot of talent in Tallahassee and much has been made about Willie Taggart’s future within the program in Year 2 with FSU. The Seminole offense plays FAST and this week there has been a lot of discussion about the Kendal Briles offense running more with Cam Akers and choosing the spots where James Blackman goes downfield in order to possess the ball and keep the FSU defense off the field.

Some notable stats in this match-up:

  • UofL Rushing Offense 260 ypg vs. FSU Rushing Defense 170.67 ypg
  • UofL Passing Offense 186 ypg vs. FSU Passing Defense 314.3 ypg
  • UofL 1st Downs 21.7 pg vs. FSU 1st Downs Allowed 30.3 pg
  • Time of Possession: UofL avg 29:12.67 vs. FSU 23:10.67
  • UofL Red Zone Trips 10 vs. FSU Red Zone Trips Allowed 19

There are a lot of other stats that really stand out in this match-up and we’ll do some further break downs this week to highlight those.
