Cook named midseason All-American

FSU RB Dalvin Cook started slow, but he's had an impressive four-week stretch in which he's rushed for 672 yards and totaled five TDs. He now leads the nation in scrimmage and all-purpose yards. Midseason All-Americans

The offensive line has received a lot of criticism at Florida State, but Jimbo Fisher said the QB pressures aren't all on the unit. He put blame on backs and tight ends, too. He's happy with the progress of his defensive line, which is finally getting healthy and playing up to their potential. Josh Sweat and Derrick Nnadi could have a strong second half.

Florida State could cause chaos

The Seminoles' season has been disappointing, but they have the talent to knock off Clemson. What if that happens, and then the Tigers go on to win the ACC title game? Chaos scenarios

DeMarcus Walker is not concerned where his sacks rank nationally (0:18)

DeMarcus Walker is unconcerned with where his 8.5 sacks ranks nationally -- he didn't know he was second -- because his focus is on Florida State's defense as a whole. The Seminoles have been strong defensively the last two weeks, but next comes Clemson's potent offense.

Florida State center Alec Eberle was sent to the athletics dining room for what he thought was a post-practice refuel. What he walked into was a celebration on behalf of Allstate honoring Eberle's charity work and community service. Eberle helped raise $16,000 for Fanconi anemia, a condition that affects FSU coach Jimbo Fisher's son Ethan.

Both Jimbo Fisher and Dabo Swinney have been good when given extra time to prepare, which both have this week with a bye before the Oct. 29 Clemson-Florida State game. Against FBS teams, Swinney is 7-2 after the bye and 18-5 total when given extra time to prepare (not including 2015 Alabama). Fisher is 15-4 with extra time and 6-2 after bye weeks, with two of those wins coming against Clemson. Both coach's lost after a bye in 2010, but they've combined to lose only two games after a bye since. One of those was when FSU beat Clemson when both came off a bye in 2014.
