Florida State Seminoles College Football Betting
The Florida State Seminoles control their destiny to make the College Football Playoff. However, the Noles have no margin for error. Head coach Mike Norvell is down to backup QB after a season ending injury to Jordan Travis. Last week, Tate Rodemaker led the Noles to a hard-fought win at Florida to save the season. FSU trailed early in the game, and things were dicey until late in the 4th quarter. Further complicating matters is that Florida State will face an impressive upstart Louisville Cardinals team that has responded to first-year head coach and favorite son/alum Jeff Brohm.

Florida State Seminoles Weekly Recap
Last game, the Florida State Seminoles won 24-15 against the Florida Gators as 6.5-point road favorites. The game went under the total of 49. Florida State has a record of 12-0 straight up, 7-5 against the spread, and 7-5 over/under the total.

Trey Benson tied a career-high with three rushing touchdowns to lead Florida State to a victory over Florida on Saturday night in Gainesville, Fla.
Benson went for 95 yards on 19 carries as the Seminoles leaned on their running game and defense after losing starting quarterback Jordan Travis to a season-ending leg injury last week.
The victory was Florida State's 18th in a row -- the third-longest active streak in the FBS -- and it kept the Seminoles' hopes of making the College Football Playoff alive.
The Gators, who also lost their starting quarterback last week when Graham Mertz suffered a collarbone fracture, came up short of clinching bowl eligibility for the first time since going 4-7 in 2017.
Benson's third score -- a 26-yard touchdown run with 2:48 left in the fourth quarter -- sealed the outcome for Florida State.
Jared Verse recorded 2.5 sacks, and Patrick Payton had two to lead Florida State's defense, which had six sacks.
But getting the win wasn't easy for the Seminoles and Tate Rodemaker, who made his first start this season and completed 12 of 25 passes for 134 yards. Rodemaker did not throw a touchdown pass, but he did not throw an interception, either.
