The Florida State Seminoles enjoyed themselves quite the eventful weekend.
On Thursday, the Oregon Ducks were upset by the Stanford Cardinal, meaning that the ‘Noles should be in a great position to make it to Pasadena to play for the national championship, should they take care of business the rest of the way.
They got off to a good start on Saturday of finishing the year strong by obliterating Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, 59-3. Once again, barely any of the Seminoles’ starters played in the second half as the ‘Noles dominated again.
Now, with only Syracuse, Idaho, Florida and the ACC Championship Game left on the schedule, that trip to Pasadena seems more possible by the week. Win those four, and Florida State will have a chance to win it all on the 20th Anniversary of the 1993 team’s title run.
