ESPN's FPI predicts outcome in Florida State-Georgia Tech game
Florida State is a big favorite over Georgia Tech this weekend at Doak Campbell Stadium.
The Seminoles trying to snap a three-game losing streak, and ESPN’s Football Power Index expects them to do just that. FPI is giving FSU a 90.9% chance to beat the Yellow Jackets this weekend.
Florida State is coming off of a bye week and has yet to lose to an unranked opponent so far this season. The Noles are 4-0 against teams outside the AP 25.
The bye week came at a good time for Florida State, who is trying to get healthy. Both Fabien Lovett and Treshaun Ward are working their way back from multi-week injuries and could play vs. Georgia Tech.
The Yellow Jackets have serious injury issues of their own to deal with. Quarterback Jeff Sims left the game early last week against Virginia, and may not be full-go against the Seminoles. If he can’t play — or if he’s limited — Georgia Tech is expected to play both Zach Gibson and Zach Pyron in his absence. It would be Pyron’s collegiate debut if he makes an appearance.
Georgia Tech has won two straight games against Florida State. FSU’s last win in this series came in 2014.
Kickoff is at 12:00 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
