A rematch, 3 1⁄2 months later

NCAA Basketball: Florida State at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

It’s been almost 3 12 months since Florida State traveled to Pitt to open the season in the ACC-money-grab round. We’ll forgive the ACC for a game that is costing the Seminoles a shot as a national 1-seed. I’m sure getting several dozen eyes on the new ACC network was worth it.

Now it is the rematch everyone has been waiting for. We’ve talked a lot lately about quick 2-day turnarounds in ACC play. Now we have a 105-day turnaround for game two against a conference opponent.

In the latest podcast (APPLE // SPOTIFY) Matt and Michael broke down this game, including what has changed for each team since early November. Should we expect another borderline unwatchable game while Pitt parades to the free throw line?

Who will win?

Ken Pomeroy FSU 85%

Vegas line FSU -10.5

How-to-watch

The game tips at 8 PM from the Donald L. Tucker Center, and will be broadcast on the fabulous ACC Network.
