From philsteele.com:

LY I liked CU as they were in a great situation. They were off a big win vs Auburn but were at home a 2nd straight week while FSU had just faced #1 Okla in their “Game of the Season” and came up short while also losing their QB and backup FSU QB Trickett got his 1st start on the road. After the game was over, Tiger fans celebrated like they won a national title and they had 26-19 FD and 455-365 yd edges in the 35-30 win but it was still closer than what I expected. FSU has dominated so far this season as expected outscoring their foes 176-3 and last week amassed 385 rush yards avenging their loss to WF last year in a big way 52-0. RB Thompson had 197 rush yards last week (21.8!) and will be facing a CU D that has allowed 180 rush ypg (4.8) TY. The CU off has been impressive so far averaging 518 ypg but the FSU D is allowing just 103 ypg. CU did get WR Watkins back last week in a 41-7 win over Furman and their QB Boyd is avg 249 ypg (73%) with a 6-1 ratio. However, he lines up behind an OL with 3 new starters and 7 underclassman in the 2 deep facing the top D-line in the country on the road. That gives FSU the matchup edge as they continue their Revenge Tour 2012 by playing their “A” game here.
