Your daily news updates on the Florida State Seminoles and their opponents.

First this

Then the reaction from the crowd. Haha.

The first true F/+ ratings are out for the year. They rate Florida State's performance to date as the 8th best nationally, with the 25th-best offense and the 6th-best defense. Oh, and the 23rd-rated special teams, thanks to dropped punts and blocked punts. This is adjusted for opponent quality, and it is still early.

In futures betting, Florida State is favored by 6 over Florida and 9.5 over Virginia Tech. Both are slightly lower this week than last week. (Sportsbook.ag)
