FSU football is enjoying quite the successful season as they have started with a 5-0 record for the first time since 2015.
Talk about a change in the narrative…
This was a Florida State Seminoles football program that suffered four straight losing seasons from 2018-2021.
The Seminoles now have an opportunity to be bowl eligible as they prepare to take on the Syracuse Orange in sold-out Doak Campbell Stadium in a sleepy noon kickoff.
The Orange are coming off two lopsided losses to Clemson and North Carolina. Head football coach Dino Babers and company are attempting to respond back in a positive manner against the Florida State, who possesses a 20-6 record in their last 26 games.
With Syracuse being 17.5-point underdogs, they should not be a team that Florida State should overlook. The Seminoles have a potential top-25 home matchup against the Duke Blue Devils next Saturday, and cannot be caught looking ahead.
Quarterback Jordan Travis has had a solid 2023 campaign where he has completed 92 of his 145 passes for 1,198 yards and 12 touchdowns with only one interception. The defensive unit of Syracuse is vulnerable against the pass where they ranked 84th in the FBS (allowing 241 passing yards per game).
This should allow a variety of offensive playmakers to get involved on Saturday, especially considering that wide receiver Johnny Wilson’s injury status is up in the air in terms of how much he will play.
ChopChat Staff Score Predictions
Well, well, well… We are back at it again with another edition of the ChopChat staff score predictions. The staff as a whole has a perfect record this season when picking the Seminoles (let’s hope that continues…).
Here is our score predictions:
•Taylor Devers: 42-17 FSU
•Kelvin Hunt: 42-17 FSU
•Jason Zang: 35-7 FSU
•Nick Andre: 31-14 FSU
While I realize that noon kickoffs are unbearable at times, I hope this will be an opportunity where FSU fans can witness an offensive explosion in route to a Seminole victory. Let’s not lose to food…
Beat the fruit!
