It's been a while since we have showcased the game of the week but there will not be any as big as the Florida State Seminoles versus the Oklahoma Sooners. Sooner nation is in full blast as the task of maintaining the number one ranking in college football is on the line.
Very few teams have been as impressive as the Noles or the Sooners this season. In fact the only team that has shined as brightly as either of these teams is the LSU Tigers. Both teams do it a different way. Oklahoma does it with a high octane offense and spreading the field out to create mismatches. The Seminoles do it with a stout defense and a running game that will leave your linebacker toothless or with broken ankles if they don't come correct.
Both teams bolster strong defenses and amazing speed. The key to the game will be depth. Also whoever makes the least amount of mistakes will probably win the game. Last year Oklahoma buried the Seminoles with an uptempo offense that drained the Noles depth and left them wanting. It showed Jimbo Fisher that he needed to add more depth and speed to his team and he definitely addressed that situation this offseason as they signed more top recruits that any team in the nation.
This game will be one for the books as I don't think there will be a blowout in this one. My gut tells me that Oklahoma is the better team but I don't want to take the Noles too lightly either. If it was in the budget, no doubt I would be at this one.
My prediction: Oklahoma 31 Florida State 30
