Florida State vs. Boston College: College Football Preview

The Florida State Seminoles are gearing up to take on the Boston College Eagles in a highly anticipated college football clash. Scheduled for September 16, 2023, at 9:00 AM in Chestnut Hill, MA, this game will be broadcasted on ABC. 

 

Team Analysis

Florida State Seminoles

Florida State enters this game with a perfect 2-0 record and a potent offense. Quarterback J. Travis has been exceptional, throwing for 517 yards and six touchdowns in just two games. The Seminoles have averaged an impressive 524.0 total yards per game, showcasing their offensive prowess.

In their last game, Florida State faced Southern Miss and secured a resounding 66-13 victory. Travis was outstanding, throwing for 297 yards and four touchdowns. The Seminoles' offense appears unstoppable, averaging 303.5 passing yards per game.

Defensively, Florida State has been solid, allowing an average of 358.5 total yards per game. Their ability to limit opposing offenses while scoring at will makes them a formidable opponent.

 

Boston College Eagles

Boston College holds a 1-1 record and faces a daunting task against the Seminoles. Quarterback T. Castellanos has shown promise, throwing for 339 yards and four touchdowns in two games. However, the Eagles have averaged 358.5 total yards per game, which pales in comparison to Florida State's offensive output.

In their last game, Boston College faced Holy Cross and secured a narrow 31-28 victory. Castellanos had a decent performance, throwing for 214 yards and three touchdowns. However, their struggles against Northern Illinois in the season opener raise questions about their ability to contend with elite teams.

Defensively, the Eagles have allowed an average of 366.0 total yards per game, which could be exploited by Florida State's high-powered offense.

 

Prediction

Florida State enters this game as the overwhelming favorite, and for good reason. Their explosive offense, led by Travis, has been nearly unstoppable, averaging over 500 total yards per game.

While Boston College has shown flashes of potential, they face a daunting challenge against a Seminoles team that seems destined for greatness this season.

Expect Florida State to continue their dominant run, with Travis leading the way. The -24.5 points spread might seem substantial, but given the stark contrast in offensive production and defensive performance, it's a reasonable bet.

If you're considering a bet, taking Florida State to win and cover the -24.5 points spread appears to be a wise choice. The Seminoles' firepower should lead them to a convincing victory in this ACC matchup.

 

Pick: Florida State Seminoles -24.5
