Head Coach Jimbo Fisher is entering his fourth season with the Florida State Seminoles, looking to improve upon a 12-2 season in 2012 capped by an Orange Bowl victory over upstart Northern Illinois. FSU loses quarterback E.J. Manuel, a controversially high draft pick by the Buffalo Bills in this year’s NFL Draft. However, this will mean an increased workload for running back Devonta Freeman, who ran at an impressive 5.9 yards per carry clip last year. New quarterback Jameis Winston looked great in the spring game this year as well. While inexperience at the position creates risk for Florida State, the path to bowl eligibility should come pretty easily with games against Bethune-Cookman, Idaho, Boston College, Syracuse, and Nevada. However, tough road games at Florida and Clemson will decide how far the Seminoles go this season. Still, the Seminoles will bank on a defense that allowed just the sixth most points in college football last season. Five-star recruit Matthew Thomas comes in at linebacker and 13 four-star prospects make this the best recruiting class in the ACC.
