NoleGameday Staff Score Predictions: FSU vs Duke

Florida State takes on Duke tomorrow afternoon with the goal of snapping its first three-game losing streak since 2018. The Blue Devils are on a three-game losing streak of their own after falling to Miami 48-0 last Saturday. Record-wise, these are two of the bottom three teams in the entire conference as we approach the end of the season. Head coach Mike Norvell and his staff will be looking to use this game to get younger players experience and build positive momentum heading into the offseason.

The Seminoles get Jordan Travis back into the fold after he missed the loss to North Carolina State game with a concussion. He’s dealt with a multitude of injuries this season but you can’t doubt his strength and heart. Travis will be looking to skill players like running back Jashaun Corbin and wide receiver Ontaria Wilson to step up without La’Damian Webb and Tamorrion Terry in the line-up. The offensive line will need to be ready to go against a Duke defense that has a solid pass rush.

The Blue Devils have had trouble with turning the ball over throughout the 2020 season and lost four fumbles against the Hurricanes last week. If the FSU defense can step up and force a few turnovers, the chances of winning this game rise exponentially.

Florida State loses this one on the gridiron so the Seminoles can take care of Duke on the hardwood in January.
