Florida State has only allowed three passing touchdowns all season, which leads the nation. FSU’s pass defense is supported by a strong pass rush and defensive line that has been effective all season long.
The Noles’ defense has powered the team to three straight double-digit victories vs. ACC opposition.
Florida State is 8-0 on the year and can clinch a spot in the ACC Championship Game with a win over Pitt on Saturday. Florida State has not played in the ACC title game since the 2014 season.
FSU’s defense will be taking on a Panthers offense that managed just 7 points in a blowout loss to Notre Dame last week.
Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
