Florida State vs. N.C. State 2012: Seminoles go for their sixth consecutive victory on Saturday

Florida State will be looking to limit N.C. State's passing attack led by quarterback Mike Glennon.

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

When the No. 3 Florida State Seminoles travel north to take on the N.C. State Wolfpack this Saturday, they face a difficult task in limiting the effectiveness of quarterback Mike Glennon.

Glennon is a prototypical pocket passer with a rocket arm. He's completing 62 percent of his passes this season and has thrown for 1,422 yards and 10 touchdowns. But the good news is he isn't very mobile when forced outside of the pocket. If the Seminoles cornerbacks can apply pressure on Glennon's receivers, while utilizing their pass rush and make him uncomfortable, Florida State will give themselves a very good chance to win on Saturday.

A victory would give the 'Noles a six-game winning streak this season. Florida State has scored no less than 30 points in any game in 2012 and has blown out four of its last five opponents. With a few more convincing wins, it could turn into a BCS National Championship contender.
