Don’t Turn Ball Over
Miami defenses have historically thrived off generating turnovers. I mentioned Miami plays with a lot of emotion, and they have generated 15 turnovers this season( eight interceptions and seven fumbles recovered).
The bad news is the Miami offense has turned the ball over 17 times, so they have nullified many of good things the defense has done. FSU has done a great job of protecting the ball, only turning the ball over five times.
However, they’ll need to be extra careful Saturday afternoon, as the Miami defense will be looking for every opportunity to take the ball away from the FSU offense. If Miami loses the turnover battle, they typically don’t win.
They are +6 in their six wins and -9 in their three losses. FSU quarterback Jordan Travis is among the best at protecting the ball.
However, FSU running back Lawrance Toafili has fumbled the ball away a couple of times, including on the opening possession against Pittsburgh last week. If FSU wins the turnover battle, they win.
