FSU football is waiting to see if they will have a football season or not. As of now, the ACC Conference is waiting at least another week to make a decision.
FSU football fans are holding their collective breath as the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be on the brink of canceling the college football season.
Some conferences like the BIG 10 are already planning to play a conference-only schedule which is a devastating move for smaller non-conference schools.
There are several scenarios the ACC is looking at in terms of trying to have a college football season.
However, unlike the BIG 10, it looks as though they wait to see what happens in the next couple of weeks before making a decision public.

I like the move from the conference leaders. It could be delaying the inevitable, but at the same time not announcing a decision doesn’t put them in a corner just yet.
It also gives them time to work on some other possible scenarios aside from conference-only games, which I’m not a fan of.
The conference-only move doesn’t make a lot of sense for the ACC. What sense does it make for FSU to travel to Syracuse but not play Florida?
I understand Syracuse is a conference division opponent, but these are not normal circumstances. I don’t think anyone cares about trying to crown a conference or national champion.
They just want football, and it would be no different than the NCAA Tournament getting canceled.
Also, if conferences are going to play games, it’s going to expose people to the coronavirus period. Maybe they can work out a regional system where teams won’t have to travel so much? There are several teams located in Florida and Georgia the Noles could play.
FSU has already had to cut jobs with other employees and coaches taking pay cuts. Whether football is played or not, a lot of people are going to be hurting one way or another.
