Florida State football is now ranked No. 16 in the College Football Playoff rankings — the second-highest slotted ACC team, setting up the Seminoles well as the regular season winds down.

Where could FSU be playing in the postseason? No national outlet is currently projecting the Seminoles to the Orange Bowl (should Clemson make the playoffs and FSU beat UF, Florida State would earn the ACC’s autobid) but FSU does have a few high-profile matchup predictions, including vs. the Texas Longhorns in the Cheez-It Bowl.

After practice on Tuesday, head coach Mike Norvell spoke on his senior class, who are set to take the field one final time in Doak Campell Stadium:

“This is a group that will be remembered, that needs to be remembered for what they’ve done, and just the consistency that they’ve shown in trying to get better and being better in getting this program back on track to where we need to be heading and they played a critical, critical role in that.”

Coordinators Adam Fuller and John Papuchis, as well as quarterback Jordan Travis, offensive lineman Dillan Gibbons and linebacker Kalen DeLoach also spoke with the media, talking on the season so far and Friday’s game vs. the Gators.

Florida State great Marvin Jones will be honored during this Friday’s game — from FSU Sports Info:

Florida State University and The National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame announced today that they will jointly honor 2022 College Football Hall of Fame electee Marvin Jones with an NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute, presented by Fidelity Investments®. The Salute will take place this Friday, Nov. 25, during the Seminoles’ home football game against Florida, which will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
