WVU turnover proves costly
By Heather Dinich
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Finally, Florida State got a momentum-changing play from its defense. Jamie Robinson intercepted Jarrett Brown here early in the second quarter and Florida State was able to score off the turnover. WVU leads, 14-10, but the play gave Florida State some life in this game.
Florida State's running game should be one thing it can count on. Jimbo Fisher needs to keep things simple for rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel, and with a veteran offensive line and talented running backs, it will help take some pressure off of Manuel. So far he's completed 50 percent of his passes. The best defense for Noel Devine & Co. in this game is to keep them off the field, and FSU will need to run the ball and control the clock to do that.
