TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida State football team takes its three-game winning streak back to where it all started Thursday night: on the road.

Following wins at Duke and at home against Maryland and NC State in consecutive weeks, the Seminoles (5-3, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) will face off against a Boston College (2-6, 1-4) team that is fresh off its first conference win of the season.

Boston College boasts one of the nation’s top defensive players in Luke Keuchly. The talented linebacker has racked up a staggering 130 tackles on the season, which is not only the best in the nation but it is a total that is 14 more than the student-athlete with the second most.

The Eagles may have lost ACC Preseason Player of the Year Montel Harris to a season-ending injury but they likely found an adequate replacement in Rolandan Finch. In the win over Maryland last weekend, Finch ran for 243 yards — the most by any ACC tailback since 2009.
