Let's hope that Santa has a gift left over for the Noles. They are going to need it. The Noles will be without their back up running back Antone Smith, will be starting the less than mobile Drew Weatherford, and will be facing a blitz happy pair of defensive ends for the Bruins.
So how can the Noles win the game against UCLA? First, they will have to have a flawless game. That means an excellent offensive game plan, no dropped passes, and an error free game by Drew Weatherford. It's possible but not probable.
The UCLA Bruins will have the home field advantage and the big "MO". They have won their last three straight games and are wanting to continue that streak with the Emerald Bowl. They have a quarterback who can scramble and two defensive ends who love to blitz. Their defense is not shabby either.
It seems that the one thing that the Noles have going for them is not to be the first team in thirty years to have a losing record.
My Prediction: FSU 14 UCLA 13
