Florida State at Duke 12:00 PM ET
Watch: ESPN 2/WatchESPN
Weather: Decent weather, but warmer than you would expect. Temperature around 70 at kick, warming to 78 before the game is over. Clear skies, winds N at 4 mph.
The Spread: Florida State opened as an 8 point favorite. The ‘Noles are now favored by 7 to 7.5. Basically, we are looking at Wake Forest! Part Deux. See the rest of Saturday’s spreads here.
Welp, FSU is 1-3 for the first time since an average Friday night out was spent skating in circles listening to the Bee Gees. Awesome. Goals all but technically and actually eliminated: National Championship, ACC Championship, State Championship, beating all rivals. At this point, FSU is playing for bowl eligibility and pride. Also, it would be nice to see young players get lots of reps and game time in the hope this team can be nationally relevant next year.
Florida State at Duke Game Thread
If you haven’t had your fill of football after the FSU game, should probably see how the rest of the country is doing. At least the Gators are bad on AND off the field. If the ‘Noles make a bowl game (well that’s no guarantee, is it) who will they match up against? Oh, ESPN is picking Tennessee? That would be the perfect womp womp exclamation point for 2017. Use this thread to watch and discuss.
Not a single ranked vs ranked game today. So hey, root for a bunch of upsets because EVERYONE SHOULD SUFFER. Dear the entire top 25, lose please (except Navy, you guys are cool) (2:00 AM EDIT: Thank you for getting everything started right, Clemson and Washington State).
