Week 7 Bold Prediction: Noonie goes for 100 yards and a TD

Keith Gavin is injured. George Campbell is hurt. Auden Tate is banged up. So who’s left at receiver for Florida State? Noonie Murray.  Florida State fans know Murray all too well after his game winning catch in the Orange Bowl:

This seems like an easy prediction to make, given the situation. However, Murray has yet to score a touchdown and is averaging less than 25 receiving yards per game this season. In fact, his only real flash of the season was this 18 yard reception vs. Miami last week:

Noonie has always been criticized for his lack of effort and showing no desire to be on the field unless he is getting targeted. That is definitely a big flaw that needs corrected.  However, in this game I believe Noonie will get the requisite targets to stay focused and engaged throughout the entire game.  As a result, I believe Noonie goes for 100 yards and a TD.
