RB Trey Benson
The offense was difficult to come by last Saturday night versus the Florida Gators. However, one bright spot from the game was redshirt junior running back Trey Benson, who had 19 rushing attempts for 95 yards and three touchdowns.
This has to be the game in which the former Oregon transfer takes the game into his own hands and plays aggressively while is also patient to allow blocks to develop for rushing lanes.
Unfortunately for Benson, Louisville’s rush defense is ranked 11th in the FBS in rushing yards allowed (96.8). This means that head football coach Mike Norvell and the company will have to get creative offensively to create opportunities for him. If Florida State ends up playing true freshman Brock Glenn, it could be even more difficult for Benson to get going. This could be a game where he has to catch quite a bit of passes out of the backfield.
There will likely be a lot of short-yardage gains before the Seminoles can wear down the Cardinals’ defensive unit. Will Benson be able to break free for a long gain to give Florida State momentum?
