    Yeah, it is shocking to me. Last year's game actually wasn't a blow out until the second half. Even though ratings were up, the game was still terrible.

    I would take that over Florida State-Northern Illinois.

    Let's not forget the thriller between Georgia Tech and Iowa three years ago.

    If FSU had played smashmouth football and used their advantage in size along the LOS to full effect, I'll bet that the NIU fan base would have had a warm feeling down their leg.
