As kickoff looms for the 2013 season opener for the Florida State Seminoles against the ACC newcomers–the Pittsburgh Panthers–we have a few last minute changes.
The FSU defense will have a bit of a different look to it than when the initial depth chart was released. True freshmen Jalen Ramsey and DeMarcus Walker will be taking the field at cornerback and defensive end respectively tonight for the ‘Noles.
#Noles lineup change: Jalen Ramsey starting CB over P.J. Williams & DeMarcus Walker starting DE over Mario Edwards, Jr. Both are true frosh.

Ramsey will be making the start at corner over P.J Williams–who was slated to start at that spot opposite LaMarcus Joyner when the initial depth chart was released. Walker, the young man that Florida State flipped from the Alabama Crimson Tide, will be making his first career start in his first game in place of the highly touted Mario Edwards Jr.
Jalen Ramsey at the corner spot isn’t much of a surprise as Williams was limited in practice this week. However, at this time, there is no word as to what prompted Walker to get the nod over Edwards,
Also of note, the official kickoff time of the game has been pushed back to 8:10 ET due to inclement weather that rolled through Pittsburgh earlier.
