Syracuse (SU) vs. Florida State (FSU) Prediction and Preview

A pair of 3-4 teams will look to get to .500 on Saturday as Florida State plays host to Syracuse at Doak Campbell Stadium.

The Seminoles are coming off a heartbreaking 22-20 loss at Wake Forest. Syracuse, on the other hand, is the only team in the ACC without a conference victory. The Orange fell at home to Pittsburgh last week, 27-20.

Syracuse blew out FSU last season in the Carrier Dome, 30-7, to snap a 10-game losing streak to the Seminoles. The Orange have never won in Tallahassee.

When Syracuse Has the Ball

Syracuse sophomore quarterback Tommy DeVito’s first real extended playing time came last season against FSU, and he excelled in relief of the injured Eric Dungey, going 11-for-16 passing for 144 yards and two total touchdowns. The numbers aren’t bad for DeVito this season, as he has more than 1,600 passing yards to his name with 12 touchdown passes and five interceptions, while completing nearly 64 percent of his throws.
