The Tigers boast one of the top Senior RB’s in the nation in Andre Ellington.

This is a critically important game for both programs. Which prospects shined in the national spotlight and elevated their draft stock? How did Andre Ellington fare against the loaded front seven of FSU and which FSU defender stood out the most? These are all questions answered in my scouting notes.
