The game against the Orange serves as the Seminoles’ conference finale and a chance to achieve another sign of progress in 2022 after securing bowl eligibility last weekend — the Seminoles haven’t won more than four ACC games since 2016 and a 5-3 mark in conference play would firmly solidify the squad amongst the ACC’s top tier.
According to DraftKings, Florida State is a 7-point favorite vs. the Orange.
FSU vs. Syracuse is set for an 8 p.m. kickoff from the JMA Wireless Dome, with the game to be broadcast on the ACC Network.
Ahead of the matchup, Florida State released its projected depth chart, with no changes seen — notably, defensive back Sam McCall is still listed despite a now-deleted post announcing his intention to transfer.
