Florida State 10: Week 9 power rankings

10/28/2012

With Chris Thompson -- last week's No. 1 player in our Florida State power rankings -- gone for the season, the Seminoles need others to step up on offense. If Saturday was any indication, that won't be a concern.

Florida State's offense racked up five touchdowns in a dominant win over Duke, and had it not been for four fumbles, it might have been a lot more.

So, with a bye week finally at hand, here's how the power rankings stack up after nine games. (Last week's ranks in parentheses.)

1. Bjoern Werner, DE (2)

Florida State finished without a sack against Duke -- its first sack-free game since 2009 -- but that doesn't mean Duke's quarterbacks were comfortable in the pocket. Werner helped lead the charge, finishing with 3 tackles, including one for a loss, and a QB hurry.
