Duquesne vs FSU Preview

Once a perennial national title contender, Florida State has been down in recent years. The Seminoles can take a significant step toward restoring that narrative on Saturday with a convincing win over the FCS Duquesne Dukes on Saturday.

“It is always important, always a big year for us to keep taking those steps to get Florida State back to the top echelon of college football,” athletic director Michael Alford said via ESPN’s Andrea Adelson.

Alford also reiterated his confidence in FSU head coach Mike Norvell’s work with the program despite a 5-7 record in 2021. Norvell enters his third season at the helm for the Seminoles.

“Mike knows that we have 100 percent faith in where it’s headed. Mike and I have talked about this: We’re setting it up for long-term success, not short-term success,” Alford said per Adelson.

FSU definitely doesn’t want the wrong kind of history to repeat itself. The Seminoles lost to FCS Jacksonville State last year. The Gamecocks scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to pull the 20-17 upset.

Duquesne notably just captured the program’s first-ever FBS upset in 2021, a 28-26 victory of Ohio of the MAC. Even coming off of a losing season, FSU will pose a bigger challenge for the Dukes on Saturday, but the Duquesne players look forward to the chance to take down a bigger college football giant.

“It’s exciting,” Dukes junior defensive back Jeremiah Josephs said via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Jason Mackey. “Everybody is ready. [Florida State] is a bigger school, and people might think that we’re coming in scared. But I feel like our team is bought in. We know we can shock the world. We look at it like an experience and an opportunity.”

Norvell expects his team to not look past the Dukes, which went 7-3 last season and fell short of the FCS playoffs. Notably, the Dukes opened the season with a Power 5 team, TCU, and got thumped 45-3.

“Our guys are excited to play, and being able to play at home, like I mentioned, is something that we’re definitely excited about,” Norvell told the media on Monday, August 22. “And this Duquesne team that’s coming in, it’s a program that’s had a lot of success over the last couple years. Their head coach has been there, I want to say going to 18 years — very disciplined football.”

“They’ve got really quality football players,” Novell added. “I want to say they got seven or eight preseason all-conference players that are returning. This is a team that you know that you can play really good football. And for us, I’m gonna say the same thing next week and the week after, it is about us; it is about us going out there and being able to execute the plan that we have.”
