3 GAMES TO WATCH
MONDAY AT MIAMI
The Seminoles haven't beaten the Hurricanes in Miami since 1998, losing three in the Orange Bowl and once in the bowl game. This one will set the tone for the season, for both teams.
SEPT. 16 VS. CLEMSON
The Tigers, a trendy pick to win the division, look to make it two straight and three of four against FSU with a win in Tallahassee.
OCT. 21 VS. BOSTON COLLEGE
Fans might be more concerned about the Gators on Nov. 25, but this game might just decide the Atlantic Division and a berth in the ACC Championship Game.
3 STATS TO WATCH
The Seminoles averaged 94.0 yards rushing, 109 out of 117 Division I-A schools and the worst in the Bowden era. They need a far more balanced attack, or redshirt sophomore QB Drew Weatherford will have to do waaaaay too much.
The defense allowed 20 or more in the final nine games, an unprecedented streak. FSU went 4-5 in those games. With seven starters gone, three of whom (LB Ernie Sims, DE Kamerion Wimbley and NG Brodrick Bunkley) were first-round draft picks, it will be up to a largely unknown group to recapture FSU's stinginess.
Weatherford threw 18 last year, 13 coming in Games 6-11. He rebounded dramatically in the ACC finale and the Orange Bowl, both against top-shelf defenses, by throwing just one interception in 78 attempts.
