Florida State Seminoles College Football Betting

Last week, the Florida State Seminoles entered the ACC championship game against the dangerous and capable Louisville Cardinals without their best player. QB Jordan Travis was lost for the year in a meaningless Senior Day win over FCS North Alabama. Thus, Florida State’s College Football Playoff hopes rode on a third-string QB after backup Tate Rodemaker was also lost to injury. Florida State beat Louisville with a powerful defensive effort. But the Seminoles must settle for the Orange Bowl and a date with the Georgia Bulldogs.

Florida State relied on a smothering defense and a two-headed ground attack to defeat Louisville 16-6 in the ACC championship game in Charlotte, N.C.

Now, the Seminoles will await their postseason fate as the College Football Playoff committee weighs where to rank them without their injured star quarterback, Jordan Travis.

With No. 2 quarterback Tate Rodemaker held out Saturday due to a concussion, true freshman Brock Glenn made his first start and completed 8 of 21 passes for 55 yards.

Lawrance Toafili, tabbed as the game's MVP, took ten carries for 118 yards and the game's only touchdown, and Trey Benson added 67 rushing yards for Florida State.

The victory gives Florida State its fifth ACC title and first since 2014.

Meanwhile, Louisville was held to 188 total yards, with Jack Plummer going 14-for-36 for 111 yards and an interception. Braden Fiske had three of Florida State's seven sacks, including one on fourth down with 2:35 to play. Jared Verse recorded two sacks.

The Florida State Seminoles went undefeated in a Power Five conference (ACC) and yet failed to qualify for the College Football Playoff. It is a snub that will never be forgotten.
