How to watch Idaho vs. Florida State 2013: Preview, TV schedule, odds and more

Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Here's the information you need in order to catch the game between the Vandals and Seminoles.

Enjoy your weekly dose of Jameis Winston while you can Saturday, because he won't need to be on the field for long. The Seminoles are bludgeoning foes to the tune of 7.9 yards per play this season, and they won't find much resistance from a hapless Idaho Vandals team. Winston has taken his leave early against far better teams than this one; this game should start to get ugly quickly.

The Vandals' lone win this year was a two-point squeaker over Temple, which also has just a single victory. Idaho is allowing nearly 46 points per game and 6.9 yards per play. The Vandals will be fortunate if the numbers Saturday end up no worse than that.

The numbers

Rankings and records: Florida State is 10-0 (8-0) on the season and No. 2 behind Alabama in the AP Poll, Coaches Poll and BCS standings. The Seminoles actually might be the best team in the nation, and it appears they will soon have the chance to prove it. The Vandals are 1-9. This is the first meeting between these two teams.

Vegas: FSU opened as a 56-point favorite.

Weather: Partly cloudy skies with a high in the upper 70s. There's a slight chance of rain.

Three names to know

Jameis Winston -- Winston, who now appears to be the frontrunner for the Heisman, ranks second among FBS quarterbacks in both passer rating and yards per attempt. No opponent to date has been able to figure out how to slow him or the FSU offense down.

Dezmon Epps -- The Vandals receiver leads the team with 64 receptions, 802 receiving yards and four touchdown grabs. He's coming off a 175-yard receiving performance, which was his best of the season.

Rashad Greene -- Greene leads the 'Noles with 54 grabs, 860 receiving yards and nine touchdown catches.

Two things at stake

Florida State is close now -- close to winning an ACC title and close to playing for the BCS Championship. There is little at stake for the Seminoles against Idaho save the health of the team. But FSU should be able to get its starters out nice and early, leaving them well rested for their rivalry game at Florida next week.

All nine of Idaho's losses have been by double digits. The Vandals will just have to grit their teeth through the first half and try to gain a little confidence in the late stages against FSU's reserves. That's a depressing outlook, but, well, so it goes.
