Why Florida State can cover
Florida State has one of the most prolific offenses in the country. Led by quarterback Jordan Travis, the Seminoles average 55.5 points per game, which ranks fourth in the nation, behind only Oregon, USC and Syracuse. They also rank 11th in the FBS in total offense (524.0 yards per game).
In addition, Florida State has a key playmaker on the outside in receiver Keon Coleman. A 6-foot-4 junior transfer from Michigan State, Coleman has four receiving touchdowns this season, which ranks fifth in the country. He already has more than half the total touchdowns he had last season when he led the Spartans with 58 receptions for 798 yards and seven touchdowns. See which team to pick here.
Why Boston College can cover
Boston College might have found its quarterback in Thomas Castellanos. A transfer from UCF, Castellanos started the season as the Eagles’ backup behind Emmett Morehead but has been the more productive of the two. Castellanos has led the offense to seven touchdowns and two field goals in his 18 drives, compared to Morehead’s one touchdown on four drives. Castellanos started last week’s 31-28 win over Holy Cross.
In addition, Boston College has a much improved rushing attack this season so far. Through two games, the Eagles are averaging 4.8 yards per rush. That’s a significant gain over last season when they averaged just 2.1 yards per rush, ranking last in the country. See which team to pick here.
