College Football Week 14: #13 Florida State Vs. Georgia Tech

Florida v Florida State Georgia Tech v Georgia

#13 Florida State

Georgia Tech

Any hope of getting into the national championship discussion went out the window when Florida pulled away from the Seminoles in the fourth quarter last week. Coaching Georgia Tech has reportedly applied for a waiver to be bowl eligible even if it loses to FSU and falls to 6-7. Georgia Tech is only in this game because Miami is ineligible.
Florida State was doomed by turnovers against the Gators—three interceptions and two lost fumbles cost them the game Offense The Yellow Jackets posted 426 yards against Georgia, as seven players rushed for at least 20 yards.
The ’Noles gave up 24 fourth quarter points last week, but most of them came on very short fields. Still, the 244 yards allowed on the ground are troubling. Defense Georgia Tech’s defense has been porous all season. Every opponent that finished above .500 this season scored at least 40 on GT.
Dustin Hopkins hit two 50+ yard field goals to tie the NCAA record of 87 career field goals. Special Teams Tech’s special teams have been bad, especially when they are kicking the ball.

The winner is

Florida v Florida State
#13 Florida State
4 out of 4

Florida State should have no problem here and should punch its ticket to the Orange Bowl.
