Tallahassee, FL--Let's talk some more numbers as the Seminoles get set for their annual war with the Hurricanes.

The numbers, those that belonged to EJ Manuel Saturday which led to FSU's 51-7 whipping of Boston College Saturday.

27 of 34, 439 yards and 4 touchdowns through the air. All that in stark contrast to the rather conservative play calling that led to the upset loss the week before in Raleigh.

And it appears it was all EJ's idea!

"I want to be aggressive as a quarterback and I told that to coach Fisher." Manuel says. "Obviously he has the final call on what we do as an offense but I told him I wanted to attack these guys and allow our receivers to make plays. That's what they want to do, those guys have been hungry all year, and I've been hungry as well. So he opened it up for us and we had a great game."

Certainly Seminole fans want more of that come Saturday in Miami. Oddsmakers think they'll get it, FSU favored by 19. Game time down there 7 central.
