FSU football is now one week away from facing the Georgia Bulldogs in the Orange Bowl on Saturday, December 30th at 4:00 PM EST.
The undefeated ACC champion Florida State Seminoles were snubbed by the College Football Playoff committee where the Alabama Crimson Tide received the number four ranking and will be taking on the Michigan Wolverines in the semifinals. As a "consolation" prize, the Seminoles will be taking on the two-time defending national champion Georgia Bulldogs.
I realize that most fans will view the Orange Bowl as a meaningless game, given that the Seminoles were wrongfully snubbed at the opportunity to compete for a national championship. However, head football coach Mike Norvell always exemplifies the word "response". How will Florida State respond to the level of adversity?
Norvell even mentioned that not getting an opportunity to compete in the College Football Playoff was one of the toughest challenges in his career. However, the good news is that the Seminoles will have a chance to give their younger players significant playing time.
In this article, let's break down three players who I believe will have an elevated level of snaps in the contest.
