Florida State (7-3) vs. Syracuse (4-6) Game Preview
Date: Saturday, Nov. 19
Game Time: 3:30 pm
Venue: Carrier Dome, Syracuse, NY
It’s been a disappointing year for Florida State, but there’s still a chance at finishing with a ten-win season if it can beat Florida next week, take the bowl game, and with trophy wins over Ole Miss, South Florida and Miami on the resume. It might not have been what the team was hoping for, but there’s still reason to be proud – if it happens.
Losing to Syracuse, though, would mean the 2016 season was a total disaster.
The Orange aren’t the same without QB Eric Dungey, who went out against Clemson with an apparent concussion, and the offense couldn’t pick up the pace against either the Tigers or last week against NC State.
However, as tough as it might be, there’s still a bowl bid there for the taking by shocking the Seminoles, and then beating Pitt to close things out.
Dungey is still hurt, and there’s just not enough defensive punch to be able hold up against the versatile FSU attack that’s getting big performances out of Deondre Francois – he’s been great over the second half of the year, even if he missed a few too many throws against Clemson – and Dalvin Cook is about to go off. He missed the Syracuse game last year, but this time around he’ll hit the 150 mark without breathing hard.
