The vast majority of college football teams have yet to play a down in 2018, but hey, even though it’s still the preseason for most squads, let’s talk postseason. ESPN recently released its preseason bowl projections, as according to Kyle Bonagura and Mitch Sherman. The best news for fans of Florida State football: neither of them predict a return trip to Shreveport for the ’Noles.
Sherman sees FSU headed for a familiar ACC destination: Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina, the venue that hosts the Belk Bowl on December 29 at noon. He forecasts a matchup with the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
Bonagura has the Seminoles playing later in the bowl schedule— but not quite on New Year’s Day. He thinks Florida State will be sent west to meet up with the Utah Utes in the Sun Bowl, which is contested in El Paso, Texas on December 31 at 2 pm.
