Week 7 Viewing Schedule: FSU’s Future Opponents

Week 7 should be an interesting week for football.  This is perhaps Florida State’s most unpredictable season of the Jimbo Fisher era, so embrace it, folks.  FSU technically still has a shot at an ACC Championship bid, if Louisville drops one more game and Clemson loses to FSU and another team.  Although highly unlikely, stranger things have happened. So after your ‘Noles play at 3:30pm, be sure to check out some more college football:

#12 Ole Miss:

Ole Miss has a tough road matchup against #22 Arkansas this week.  This game will be played Saturday at 7 pm on ESPN.  Ole Miss is favored by 7.5 and this win would be a great addition to their resume, and in turn, bolster FSU’s resume.

Charleston Southern:  

Bye week.

#7 Louisville:

Louisville welcomes Duke to Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium at 7 pm on Friday night.  Louisville is favored by 34 points and the game will be broadcasted on ESPN.  Louisville being favored by nearly 5 touchdowns is a testament to how elite their team is.  If they continue to dominate their competition, they could earn an at large playoff bid, regardless of whether they can sneak into the ACC Championship.

South Florida:

South Florida takes on Connecticut at home on CBSS on Saturday night at 7 pm.  USF takes on one of the best FCS teams in the country (one that beat UVA) but is still favored by 18.  USF has looked impressive in every game other than the FSU game and will look to continue that trend this weekend.

North Carolina:  

North Carolina looks to bounce back from the beatdown they took last week at the hands of Virginia Tech.  Luckily they will have a chance to make a statement playing at #16 Miami Saturday at 3:30 pm on ESPN2.  The Tar Heels are 7 point underdogs and are in need of a big win to avoid a disappointing season.

#16 Miami (FL):

Miami welcomes North Carolina to town as they look to bounce back from a disappointing loss to FSU at home last week.  Although Miami is favored by 7, North Carolina is a respectable opponent and Miami must play well to win.  This game will be broadcasted on ESPN2 at 3:30 pm on Saturday.

Wake Forest:

Wake Forest has enjoyed a great 5-1 start to this season.  However, they haven’t faced any competition close to that of the Seminoles this year.  For more in depth analysis, check out our preview.  This game will be played in Tallahassee at 3:30 pm on ESPN. The ‘Noles are 21 point favorites.

#3 Clemson: 

The Tigers take on NC State at home on Saturday at noon.  Clemson is favored by 18 and the game will be broadcasted on ABC. FSU fans need to root for a miracle upset if they are still clinging to ACC Championship hope.

North Carolina State:

NC State goes on the road to Death Valley to take on Clemson on Saturday at noon.  The Wolfpack are 18 point underdogs and the game will be broadcasted on ABC.  FSU fans need to root for a miracle upset if they are still clinging to ACC Championship hope.

 Boston College:

By week.

Syracuse:  

Although Syracuse’s offense looked strong to start the season, it has faltered over the last few weeks, and I don’t expect anything different this Saturday vs. Virginia Tech.  The game will be televised on ESPNU at 3:45 pm.

#18 Florida:

Florida takes on an underrated Missouri team at home on Saturday.  Kickoff is at 4 pm on SECN.  The Gators are getting healthier and starting quarterback Luke Del Rio is expected to play.
