WEEK ONE GAME OF THE WEEK Florida St. Seminoles ( BigKing )VS.Arkansas Razorbacks ( Raidernation ) The 2012 season begins with a bang as the #8 Florida St. Seminoles travel to Razorback Stadium to battle the #7 Arkansas Razorbacks. While not traditional rivals, these two teams have traded both subliminal and overt verbal jabs at each other since talk of the 2012 season began. Both teams enter the game with National Championship hopes for this season, and an early win against a top 10 team would definetely be a good first step. The Seminole's offense will be led by senior quarterback E.J. Manuel. While no one questions Manuel's talent, he has yet to put it all together on the field. It will be important for Manuel to remain healthy throughout the season if FSU wants to compete for a title. Manuel will have a talented core of receivers to target led by 6'6" senior Rodney Smith. Smith's size makes him a matchup nightmare for any corner in the NCAA. The Seminoles will look to sophmore RB Devonta Freeman to carry the load for the Seminole's rushing attack. While young, Freeman is a burner that can go the distance anytime he touches the ball. Defensively, FSU is led by senior defensive end Brandon Jenkins. It will be important for Jenkins to pressure Razorback QB Tyler Wilson, if the Seminoles hope to slow down a potent Razorback attack. The Arkansas Razorbacks come into the 2012 season with not only title hopes, but Heisman hopes for senior quarterback Tyler Wilson. Wilson is one of the top signal callers in Division I with a powerful, accurate arm. Wilson will look to senior WR Cobi Hamilton for big plays in the passing game. Hamilton, at 6'3", is a great combination of size and speed, and he should have a big season with Wilson throwing him the ball. Junior HB Knile Davis will look to take some pressure of the passing game by controling the ball on the ground. On defense, Arkansas looks to senior LB Alonzo Highsmith to lead the biggest question mark for the Razorbacks, their defense. The biggest key for Arkansas may be the health of CB Darius Winston. This postion has little depth, and the Razorbacks can not afford an injury at this postion. Coach BigKing has spent the offseason reminding everyone of his past glory. However, none of that matters now. To quote Janet Jackson, "what have you done for me lately." Regardless of his past victories, all that matters now is what he does in this game on this week. Traveling to Arkansas to face a juggernaut of an offense to open the season is a huge test for any team. While E.J. Manuel is talented, his inability to stay healthy has to be a concern. Meanwhile, Tyler Wilson is coming of an impressive season that he hopes to build on. Arkansas will rely on Wilson, the home crowd, and a couple of key turnovers to take this one in a shoot-out 34-28.
