It hasn’t been another season of blowouts for Florida State, but they’ve done enough to do what many of the highest ranked teams haven’t – win. The reigning national champions comes to the Carrier Dome to face a Syracuse team that has lost its last three games. The Seminoles, meanwhile, haven’t lost since the 2012 season.
“There’s a reason why they’ve won 21 in a row: great coaching and great players,” Scott Shafer said. “We have a daunting task in front of us, but we're looking forward to it.”
Syracuse (5-4, 3-2) football is just one win away from locking up a bowl game, but that victory will be hard to get this weekend as the Orange faces 2nd ranked Florida State (9-0, 7-0).
While Florida State may be 38.5 point favorites in the game, ‘Cuse enters this weekend allowing only three points in its last two games. The Orange’s defense has been in great form as SU travels down to Tallahassee.
