The Florida State Seminoles aren't testing themselves much with their early season schedule. Fresh off a 69-3 win over Murray State, the Seminoles will play Savannah State. The Tigers lost their first game to Oklahoma State, 84-0.

Florida State relied on a dominant rushing attack to win its first game. The Seminoles scored seven rushing touchdowns and were led by sophomore James Wilder Jr., who had 106 yards and a touchdown.

The defense was also strong. It allowed 156 total yards and forced three turnovers.

There shouldn't be much of an upset watch on in Tallahassee on Saturday. Savannah State has won just two games in the last two seasons. In its loss to Oklahoma State, the Tigers trailed 35-0 after the first quarter.

Game time/date: 6 p.m. ET, Saturday

Location: Doak S. Campbell Stadium, Tallahassee, Fla.

TV Schedule/Streaming: ESPN3/WatchESPN
