Deondre Francois Named as Starter vs Notre Dame

Via The Tallahassee Democrat Redshirt Junior QB Deondre Francois has been named the Seminoles starter when they take on #3 Notre Dame on Saturday. The team was notified after practice on Friday night and reports began to surface of the move by early  Saturday Morning. 

The announcement comes on the heels of HC Willie Taggart announcing on Monday that he would evaluate the QB position after Sophomore James Blackman started in his place during FSU's 47-28 loss to NC State last week. He threw for 421 yards with four touchdowns and an interception while earning ACC Quarterback of the Week honors for his performance. FSU plays #3 Notre Dame at 7:30 PM Saturday Night in Notre Dame Stadium.
