No. 16 Florida State Seminoles football, sitting at 8-3 (5-3 ACC) on the season and currently the second-highest ranked ACC team, has a chance to further bolster its bowl resume this Friday with a rivalry matchup vs. the Florida Gators (6-5, 3-5 SEC).
After North Carolina’s upset to Georgia Tech last weekend, there is a plausible path for the Seminoles to qualify for the Orange Bowl — Clemson has to make the playoff and FSU needs to win out. If the conference champion heads to the playoff, then the highest-ranked ACC team is selected to face off against the highest-ranked non-champion Big Ten or SEC school (or Notre Dame.)
Each week, we’ll be tracking where Florida State is projected to play in the postseason — you can find that below.
