The 4th-ranked Florida State Seminoles are in Pennsylvania to face the Pitt Panthers (2-6, 1-3 ACC) today with a 3:30 p.m. kickoff. The game is being televised on the ESPN network and will mark the 8th-time Florida State has been featured on either ESPN or ABC so far this season.

The Seminoles (8-0, 6-0 ACC) are looking to remain undefeated, clinch a spot in the ACC Championship Game, and try to improve on their #4 ranking in the initial College Football Playoff Rankings.

Pitt will be trying to recover from a 58-7 drubbing at the hands of 12th-ranked Notre Dame last week. Pitt’s lone touchdown in that game came late in the 4th quarter during garbage time, and the Panther defense gave up 380 yards passing, and 535 total yards to the Irish.

This is the 11th meeting between Pitt and Florida State in a series that Pitt leads 6-4 and won the most recent meeting 41-17 at Doak Campbell Stadium in 2020. This is only the third ACC game between Pitt and Florida State and the series is tied at one win apiece.

Florida State is on a roll on offense with a 14 game winning streak, scoring over 30 points in each of those 14 wins, and outscoring their opponents 585-255 during this streak.

The Seminole defense is the only team in the nation forcing more incompletions than completions allowed. The last time a P5 team held its opponents below 50 percent completions in a season was 2018, when Michigan and LSU posted marks of 49.5 and 49.7 percent, respectively. Again, more incompletions than completions allowed by Fuller’s defense.

According to DraftKings, the Seminoles are a 21.5-point favorite against the Pitt Panthers with the over/under set at 50.
