ESPN gives final bowl projections for Florida State
ESPN updated its final bowl projections for Florida State on Sunday morning.
Kyle Bonagura and Mark Schlabach are both projecting FSU to appear in the Cheez-It Bowl. Bonagura has the Noles facing Texas Tech while Schlabach predicts they will play against Oklahoma.
The Noles are the second-highest ranked team in the ACC, but are expected to miss out on a New Year’s Six opportunity.
Florida State and Oklahoma have a long history together, which has mostly been dominated by the Sooners. OU has won six games in a row in this series, with FSU’s lone win coming back in 1965. Oklahoma defeated Florida State in the National Championship Game following the 2000 season.
Florida State and Texas Tech have played five times previously, with the Seminoles winning four of those games. However, these programs have not met since 1987.
The Cheez-It Bowl will be played on Dec. 29 at Camping World Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 5:30 p.m. ET.
Florida State will learn its official bowl destination on Sunday afternoon.
