Florida State lost two of its last four games by a combined five points, including a 37-34 setback against third-ranked Clemson last Saturday, but coach Jimbo Fisher likes the fight from his Seminoles.

The Wolfpack was a short field goal away from being 5-1 with a victory over Clemson on Oct. 15, but missed that kick and have tumbled back to .500 with a tough task ahead if they are to get a bowl bid.

Junior running back Dalvin Cook hopes to extend his streak of 100-yard rushing games to six and boasts 1,069 overall with 11 touchdowns on the ground. Freshman quarterback Deondre Francois has had a productive year (2,162 yards passing, 11 TD passes, 60.5 completion percentage), but has been sacked 25 times – six last week.

Sophomore quarterback Ryan Finley threw for a career-high 307 yards last week, but had two interceptions for the third consecutive game. Junior tight end Jaylen Samuels (seven total touchdowns) is the top threat through the air with 34 catches for 325 yards, but was held to one reception last week, and sophomore Stephen Louis has hauled in 21 for 422 yards.

The Seminoles have won three straight against the Wolfpack, including a 34-17 triumph last year, and lead the series 25-11 overall.
