What you need to know about Florida State

The Seminoles were able to grind out a solid win over the North Carolina Tar Heels last week, winning 35-25. QB Jordan Travis was a one-man wrecking crew for FSU, throwing for three touchdowns and 145 yards on 13 attempts, in addition to rushing for two more touchdowns and 121 yards. Travis put himself on the highlight reel with a 53-yard TD scramble in the second quarter. 

The Seminoles have won two-straight after dropping their first four games of the 2021 season. The key for FSU on Saturday will be avoiding a let down against an inferior opponent in UMass.

What you need to know about Massachusetts

Meanwhile, the Minutemen netted a 27-13 victory over the Connecticut Huskies last week. Massachusetts' RB Ellis Merriweather was one of the most active players for the team, rushing for two TDs and 171 yards on 39 carries.

UMass has been blown out in four of its last five games, and will need to play a near perfect game to keep this matchup competitive. Look for the Minutemen to lean heavily on their rushing attack on Saturday.
