Florida State football has some momentum for the first time in a long while. The Seminoles have won back-to-back ACC games and are coming off their first road win of the Mike Norvell era. The ‘Noles took down the North Carolina Tar Heels 35-25 in Chapel Hill on Saturday. FSU will now get a much needed bye week this week. After that, the UMass Minutemen will head to Tallahassee on Saturday, October 23rd. Today, the ACC announced that game will kickoff at noon and be televised on ACC Network.

They also have a bye week this week. Former Florida State offensive coordinator Walt Bell is the Minutemen’s head coach. It will be the first ever matchup between Florida State and UMass.
