FSU is on a four-game hot streak after steamrolling the Louisana Ragin’ Cajuns 49-17, and the Gators are in a lul, losing to Vanderbilt last weekend 31-24.
The game is officially sold out and has been since late September, with all eyes being on the Seminoles, who look to finish their regular season strong in hopes of securing ten wins when it is all said and done.
Florida leads the series all-time 37-26-2 and is currently on a three-game winning streak against the Noles. This will also be the first time the two head coaches will face off on the gridiron as UF recently hired Billy Napier, who is in his first year at the helm.
FSU is currently a 10-point favorite, according to DraftKings.
A few notes from FSU Sports info:
Florida State has won four straight games by at least 25 points, the longest active streak in the nation and the 2nd-longest streak by any team this season.
Throughout the last four games, FSU has outscored opponents 173-39 and outgained them by over 1,000 yards (1,956-903).
FSU is fourth nationally in passing defense (155.4 pass yards per game allowed) and opponent yards per pass attempt (5.7).
FSU has rushed for at least 200 yards in six straight games, the longest active streak in the nation and one of just two teams with a six-game streak this year. The last time FSU had a longer 200-yard rushing streak was 1987 when FSU ran for over 200 yards in seven consecutive contests.
