Pick: Florida State -3
Flashes Game Notes
Florida State is the favorite here but not by much. Big total expected because neither of these NCAA Football teams play very good defense. The Seminoles rank #93 in total yards allowed and Syracuse is ranked #103.
Don’t see these defenses doing all that much to stop each other, do you?
Syracuse has the #34 ranked offense in NCAA Football. They average 233 yards via the air and 274.5 on the ground.
Florida State has the #94 ranked offense. They average 276.5 passing yards per game and 114 rushing yards.
Both of these teams struggle against teams who throw the ball. Florida State allows 341 passing yards per game. Syracuse allows 313 passing yards per game. The advantage should go to Syracuse but they really aren’t all that good at passing the football.
Florida State is a top 20 defense against the rush. Their battle with the Syracuse two pronged attack of QB Eric Dungey and RB Moe Neal should be fun to see and probably where the game will be won or lost.
