Week 8 Bold Prediction: Jacques Patrick rushes for 150 yards

Let’s be honest, the only way FSU can win this game is by scoring 30+ points. And the only way they’ve shown they can consistently move the football is on the ground, as freshman QB James Blackman has yet to prove he can be dominant through the air. This being said, I think Jacques Patrick will be relied on heavily on Saturday. Patrick’s experience will be especially important against a team like Louisville who likes to get very creative on defense. Because of this, Patrick will be in the game a lot and that, coupled with the fact that Louisville has already allowed their opponents to rush for over 1000 yards this season (for comparison, FSU’s defense has only allowed 571), will allow Jacques Patrick to have the best game of his career.  I fully expect Patrick to eclipse 150 yards rushing against Louisville.
