ESPN’s SP+ predicts outcome of Florida State's home contest against Syracuse
ESPN’s SP+ has projected the winner of Saturday’s game between Florida State and Syracuse.
The Seminoles boast an unblemished 5-0 record and a 3-0 mark in the ACC. It hasn’t necessiarly been easy — they held off a hard-charging Boston College team in the 4th quarter and were locked in a tight one at Clemson before eventually leaving with a win. They followed it up with a 39-17 win against Virginia Tech out of the open week.
Meanwhile, the Orange are 4-2 and winless in ACC play. It’s their 2nd nationally-ranked opponent in a row; they were blown out by North Carolina in Week 6.
According to the SP+ projection, Florida State will come out on top in this one by a 33-21 score to improve to 6-0. History seems to suggest things being in the Seminoles’ favor: they’ve lost just twice in 15 tries to the Orange, who are 0-7 at Doak Campbell Stadium.
Kickoff from Tallahassee is set for noon ET and will be televised on ABC.
