Will Dalvin Cook run big vs. GA Tech?
LSU's Leonard Fournette is deservedly receiving a ton of attention as the best back in the nation, but Florida State's Dalvin Cook continues to fly under the radar.
Cook and the Seminoles are 5.5-point road favorites tonight versus Georgia Tech at 7:00PM ET. Cook leads the team in rushing with 955 yards on 110 attempts, which is good for an incredible 8.7 yards per carry average. He also has 10 rushing touchdowns on the year, two more than he had all of last season.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag have set the over/under for Cook's rushing yards tonight against the Yellow Jackets at 145.5. Georgia Tech is averaging 178.4 yards a game this year defensively and Cook has gained over 145.5 yards four times this season.
The only team to hold him in check was Boston College, which allowed Cook to rush for only 54 yards on 15 carries. Wake Forest also held him to fewer than 100 yards, but that was because he left the game with a hamstring injury after just two carries. On those two carries, Cook ripped off 94 yards.
