Florida State Football is now ranked 16th in the College Football Playoffs — the second-highest slotted ACC team, which is building up the Seminoles as the regular season draws to a close.
Where could FSU play in the postseason? No national outlet is currently projecting the Seminoles into the Orange Bowl (should Clemson make the playoffs and beat FSU UF, Florida State would get the ACC’s autobid), but FSU has some high-profile matchup predictions, including against the Texas Longhorns in the Cheez It Bowl.
After Tuesday’s practice, head coach Mike Norvell spoke about his senior class, which will take to the field one last time at Doak Campell Stadium:
“This is a group that will be remembered, must be remembered for what they’ve done and just for the persistence they’ve shown to get better and get this program better back on track that we need to go, and they played a crucial, crucial role in that.”
Coordinators Adam Fuller and John Papuchis, along with quarterback Jordan Travis, offense lineman Dillan Gibbons and linebacker Kalen DeLoach also spoke to the media and spoke about the season so far and Friday’s game against 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 the 2022 College Football Hall of Fame inductee Marvin Jones with an NFF Hall of Fame On-Campus Salute presented by Fidelity Investments®. The salute will take place this Friday, November 25, during the Seminoles’ home football game against Florida, which kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC.

Spurrier: I almost feel sorry for Tennessee. They’re not going to win the division… they’re not going to make the Final Four. You’ll just have a slightly better year than average. Someone told me, ‘Tennessee is probably headed for the Citrus Bowl now.'” https://t.co/HTMlLoRzif
