Florida State learns latest CFP rankings fate after Week 10 win over Pitt
Florida State retained its No. 4 spot in the updated College Football Playoff rankings, which were revealed on Tuesday evening.
The Seminoles stayed in front of No. 5 Washington this week despite the Huskies’ top-25 win over USC in Week 10. Florida State also won over the weekend, albeit in a closer-than-expected 24-7 game against Pittsburgh.
Florida State is joined by Louisville in this week’s rankings at No. 11 nationally. The Cardinals moved up 2 spots after their big win over Virginia Tech in Week 10.
Florida State has already clinched a spot in the ACC Championship Game next month. The Noles are 7-0 in ACC play and can finish off an undefeated record in conference play with a win over Miami on Saturday. FSU has not gone 8-0 in ACC play since the 2014 campaign. That was also the last season in which Florida State reached the College Football Playoff.
FSU’s likely opponent in the ACC Championship Game is Louisville. The Cardinals are the lone one-loss team in the ACC entering Week 11 and will finish their conference slate with meetings vs. Virginia and Miami over the next couple of weeks.
FSU will face Miami at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
