TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Although ninth-ranked Florida State is most likely out of the national title picture, the Seminoles head into their bye week with most of their preseason goals at hand if they can avoid being upset a second time.
Florida State (8-1, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) most likely lost its chance at getting to the BCS championship game when it inexplicably blew a 16-point halftime lead at North Carolina State earlier this month. But the Seminoles have rebounded impressively with three ACC straight wins, outscoring their opponents 132-34 in those games.
And thanks to North Carolina’s win last weekend over North Carolina State, the Seminoles have been handed a second chance at winning the ACC championship and a BCS trip to the Orange Bowl, albeit most likely on New Year’s Day.
