FSU Will Make The College Football Playoff
I predicted FSU to win nine games last year(including a bowl), and they surpassed that by one win. What’s crazy is they left a lot on the table with three losses to ranked opponents by a combined 18 points. I don’t think that’s going to happen this year. Outside of LSU and Clemson, I don’t see many teams as a threat on the schedule.
They should go no worse than 10-2, and if they go 11-1, I don’t see how they could miss making the College Football Playoffs.
They have all of the ingredients to make a big run in 2023. They have a Heisman caliber QB, great running game, triple-option at wide receiver/tight end, and arguably one of the best defensive lines in the ACC. They return both starting linebackers and two of the better cornerbacks in the ACC, plus guys with experience at safety.
If they start the season 4-0, I think you can count on them running the table and making this prediction come true relatively easily.
