Florida State (-2.5) vs. Louisville

By Adam Ortega

The Louisville Cardinals will be hosting the Florida State Seminoles. The Seminoles will enter the game 2-0, having most recently defeated LSU. The Cardinals are entering the game with a record of 1-1, coming off a win against UFC after a disappointing opening week loss to conference foe Syracuse Orange. 

The stakes will be high Friday night as two ACC conference teams battle to come out of this football game victorious. Florida State last played on September 4th, 2022, in New Orleans against a veteran coach Brian Kelly who had his LSU Tigers ready. Fortunately for Florida State, they came out of Louisiana with a 24-23 win against LSU. Most impressively, I saw a team who imposed their will physically against a feisty LSU football team.

At quarterback for FSU, Jordan Travis has a sixty-four percent pass completion. In addition, Travis also possesses sneaky speed if he needs to tuck and run. It's been several years since I've seen confidence and swagger in the Seminoles, and they might surprise college football fans this year. With the consistency and poise that FSU showed against LSU, don't expect the Seminoles to be rattled while playing on the road Friday night.

Louisville is a team that I always seem to have a hard time understanding. When you think they'd have great success, they lay an egg. When put under challenging circumstances, they come up golden. The UL Cardinals have Malik Cunningham under center with a 58 percent completion rate. To have a chance to put his team in a position to win, Cunningham will have to find his receivers with great accuracy. With the physicality that FSU has shown this year, the UL Cardinals will need the help of their home fans.

Friday night college football is one of my favorite days of the week. You get to focus on a few games as an appetizer to prepare for a big college football Saturday. In this tilt, and although playing on the road, the Florida State Seminoles have proven that they can win as an underdog on the road. As a slight favorite, I would back them on the spread to win and cover -2.5 at -112.
