In order to be exceptional of defense, you have to have a pretty efficient offense. At least one that doesn’t turn it over. With that in mind, I’m not sold at all on FSU’s offense or QB. He’s a turnover waiting to happen.
Since both play in the ACC, the league itself isn’t very good, but it does have some average to better than average QB’s. I think with all things even, I’d take VT’s defense over FSU’s as far as production goes simply because Logan Thomas and VT’s offense won’t turn it over nearly as much as FSU’s is likely to.
