Florida State junior RB Jacques Patrick had three carries for 28 yards and two scores in a 77-6 victory over Delaware State on Saturday.

FSU was able to limit Patrick's workload after they jumped out to a 56-6 lead at halftime. He'll get plenty of run next week at Florida.

Florida State freshman QB James Blackman went 11-of-15 for 179 yards and three touchdowns in a 77-6 victory over Delaware State on Saturday.

The Seminoles took out their frustrations on an overmatched FCS program. Delaware State actually got to within 14-6 with 4:04 remaining in the first quarter, but FSU went on to score 63 unanswered points. FSU, now 4-6, incredibly still has a chance to go bowling. They must beat both Florida and UL-Monroe over the next two weeks to do so.

Florida State senior DT Derrick Nnadi is a "mobile tree trunk in the middle of the field, taking on double-teams and clogging inside run lanes," writes's Dane Brugler.

Nnadi (6'0/312) is coming off a big showing against Clemson, recording six tackles. "Nnadi uses his natural leverage and upper-body power to engage, hold his ground and shed, quickly resetting his eyes to find the football and pursue," Brugler wrote. "His smooth hips allows him to break down and quickly redirect in short spaces." Nnadi recently received an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Florida State senior DT Derrick Nnadi received an invitation to participate in the 2018 Senior Bowl.

Nnadi (6'1/300) has been a standout in a year that hasn't featured many for the Seminoles, and has rated highly on Pro Football Focus for his ability to stop the run and pressure the quarterback. If he shows the ability to do so in the Senior Bowl practices/games, he could be one of the first defensive tackles to come off the board come spring.

An NFC director of college panned FSU junior CB Tavarus McFadden.

"I had heard all this talk about Tarvarus McFadden and how his ball skills were the best in college football," he said. "Then I turned the tape on from this year and didn't see it. If you didn't go back and watch (last season's tape), you would have no idea he had ball skills." That's a bizarre thing to say about somebody who had eight interceptions last year, but McFadden has yet to pick off a ball in 2017. "I still believe McFadden has tremendous hands and ball skills, but I have to point people in the direction of his 2016 game tape to back up my claim," analyst Lance Zierlein wrote. "McFadden was my No. 2 cornerback to watch heading into the season, but his lack of ball production has been disappointing."

Florida State freshman RB Cam Akers ran 12 times for just 40 yards in Saturday's 31-14 loss at Clemson.

The freshman sensation was no match for the Tigers rush defense, and the Seminoles managed just 0.9 yards per attempt on 24 runs. There have been all kinds of bright spots for the freshman in an otherwise dreary campaign for Florida State, but this certainly was a low point. He'll bounce back nicely against Delaware State of the FBS next weekend in Tallahassee.

Florida State junior WR Nyqwan Murray (undisclosed) returned to Saturday's game against Clemson.

Murray left for the locker room for evaluation after suffering an injury in the first half. Back at it, now. If there's any lingering concern, FSU will pass along word after the game.

Florida State junior WR Nyqwan Murray left Saturday's game against Clemson with an undisclosed injury.

Murray headed to the locker room after coming down injured -- he looked to be walking a little gingerly -- before returning to the sideline to try to get himself loosened back up. Consider him questionable to return to the contest.

Florida State junior WR Auden Tate (foot) is warming up in advance of Saturday's game against Clemson.

Tate was scratched late prior to last Saturday's win over Syracuse and was listed as questionable for this Clemson contest during the practice week. He's moving well in warmups and all signs at this point are trending toward him giving it a go barring another late scratch.

Florida State junior WR Auden Tate (foot) is questionable for Saturday's contest against Clemson.

Tate was a late scratch against Syracuse last week, and it sounds like he'll be a game-time decision again for the Seminoles. The banged up Florida State offense could have Keith Gavin (hip) return, but if Tate can't go, it could be another big target game for Nyquan Murray against the tough Clemson defense.

Florida State junior RB Jacques Patrick is "good to go" against Clemson on Saturday.

Just a few weeks ago Patrick was viewed as likely out for the season, but after no ligament damage was found in his knee Patrick made a speedy recovery. Patrick will join Cam Akers to lead FSU's backfield.

Florida State is expected to reschedule their canceled game against ULM for December 2.

This game was not expected to be played, so some are concluding it will only happen in the hopes of the 3-5 Seminoles becoming bowl eligible. The game was originally set for September 9.

The Houston Chronicle's Brent Zwerneman told ESPN's Paul Finebaum that Texas A&M has interest in hiring Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher.

Fisher's Florida State squad sits at just 3-5 on the season, but this subpar, injury-riddled campaign has done little to dim his luster as an ace recruiter and coach. For the time being, Aggies HC Kevin Sumlin remains at the helm of the Texas A&M ship. He's guided them to a 5-4 record for the campaign. You can expect to hear Fisher's name brought up a fair amount once the coaching carousel starts up in earnest at the end of the season.

Florida State junior RB Jacques Patrick (knee) practiced on Monday.

Patrick underwent a surgical procedure to remove bone spurs in late October and has sat out the past two games while on the mend. There was some initial fear that he might be forced to miss the rest of the season, but that does not appear like it will be the case. The junior believes that he will be a "full go" for Saturday's game against Clemson. Cam Akers exploded for 199 yards rushing against Syracuse this past weekend and may well see more carries than Patrick against the Tigers even if the latter player is able to take to the field.

The Orlando Sentinel's Safid Deen reports that Florida State redshirt freshman T Josh Ball has been accused of dating violence.

Ball's girlfriend, Sandra Sellers, filed a protective injunction on September 27. In that injunction, she referred to the redshirt freshman as a "violent person." The injunction includes 11 alleged incidents of aggressiveness toward Sellers and/or her property. Florida State issued a statement in which they said that they were aware of the case. Ball remains in good standing with the football team and has not been charged with a crime at this juncture. He's started four consecutive games at left tackle for the Seminoles.
