Led by QB1 FSU has 15 All-ACC selections on Athlon’s preseason All-ACC team:

A familiar face says FSU can make a College Football Playoff statement in September:

By a small margin FSU has the best odds to win the ACC just ahead of Clemson.

For the first time since 2017, the ACC preseason favorite is not named Clemson. Instead Florida State rides last year’s late momentum and a bevy of returning starters to frontrunner status, according to odds from Caesars Sportsbook. The shift comes as the conference scraps its old divisional structure. In its place, the league will pit the two teams with the best league record against each other in the conference title game.

The other games will be entertaining but Florida State vs. LSU is clearly the prize of the week 1 schedule.

These teams played a thriller last season in New Orleans (won by the Seminoles) that actually wound up launching renaissance seasons for both programs. This time, both come in with massive expectations. I’d expect a much cleaner game than that 2022 matchup, but I hope it’s just as fun.
