FSU football will not play this week as they have a bye and will use that time to get healthy and begin preparations for Virginia Tech in week six. It will be their first home game in three weeks as they look to become a more dominant version of themselves.

It will be their first home game in three weeks as they look to become a more dominant version of themselves.

Although FSU won’t be in action, there are still a few games of interest on the docket this weekend. Here are three games FSU football fans should keep tabs on:

  • Clemson at Syracuse, 12 p.m. on ABC
  • No. 22 Florida at Kentucky, 12 p.m. on ESPN
  • No. 11 Notre Dame at No. 17 Duke, 7:30 p.m. on ABC

Clemson is a -6.5 betting favorite on the road against Syracuse. The Tigers will have to overcome the emotional letdown overtime loss against FSU, while Syracuse has played Clemson tough the last few years. FSU will play Syracuse in a couple of weeks.

Florida will travel to Kentucky as +1 betting underdogs. Kentucky is a solid team and will give FSU fans a solid indicator of how the Florida team is evolving. Can they find some offense against  Mark Stoops led Kentucky defense?

Notre Dame will travel to Duke as -5.5 betting favorites. Some folks believe Duke will be one of the more tougher teams remaining on the FSU football schedule. This game will tell everyone a lot about Duke and if they are good, or Clemson merely beat themselves in the season opener with multiple turnovers.

I like how FSU matches up with all the teams remaining on the schedule. They’ve already faced the best mobile QB they’ll see in Jayden Daniels in the LSU game. They’ve already faced the best defensive front and secondary they’ll face against Clemson. This weekend will be a good time to scout the competition and see where we stack up!
