No. 5 FSU football will take on the No. 6 Georgia Bulldogs in the Capital One Orange Bowl Saturday at 4 p.m. on ESPN. This game will likely look much different than folks from the Orange Bowl thought, with both teams displaying close to 20 players not playing. The biggest difference for FSU will be on offense. They'll have third-string freshman QB Brock Glenn making his second straight start, but he'll be without the services of FSU's top three receivers, Johnny Wilson, Keon Coleman, and Jaheim Bell. FSU will also be without its top two running backs, Trey Benson and Lawrance Toafili.

FSU will have some semblance of its offensive line in place, according to the FSU depth chart released Tuesday. Most defensive starters will play aside from Jared Verse, Renardo Green, and Akeem Dent. However, those are three of your most important players. We saw how badly the FSU defense fell off when Akeem Dent missed several games with a hamstring injury earlier in the year. Georgia will be without its top receiver and other players that have opted out. Nevertheless, FSU will be +17 betting underdogs going into Saturday's game. Here are three things to look for Saturday afternoon.
