Syracuse at Florida State 3:30 PM ET
Watch: ACC Network (More on How to Watch)
Weather: The ‘Noles will need the sideline heaters. Temperatures will be 38 degrees at kick, warming up to a blistering 42 degrees. It’s a good thing this game is at noon. Mostly sunny skies, breezy with winds SSW at 10 mph.
The Spread: The game opened as a pick. Some money came in on the Eagles as they are now favored between 2 and 2.5 points. Bud Elliot give his plays for the rest of your betting weekend.
LastNoleOfKrypton’s prediction pretty much sums it up:
Freezing temperatures? Check.
Coach fired? Check.
Best defensive players injured? Check.
AJ Dillon coming off a 242-yard performance vs. Syracuse? Check.
I’m under no illusion as to how this game is going to go; I hope I’m wrong, but this is going to be bad.
FSU 21 BC 38
Florida State has real, actual football to play this weekend. It’s ok if you’ve barely though about football after the Sunday firing of now former FSU coach Willie Taggart. It’s strange times for Florida State. Whichever coach takes over in 2020, it will be the 3rd head coach since 2017. And that doesn’t count interim head coach Odell Haggins, TWICE. It’s a time of uncertainty for the Florida State faithful and it might get worse before it gets better. Oh yeah, Go Noles, beat BC.
