The Virginia Cavaliers are still in the hunt for the Coastal Division crown, but they'll first need to defeat the Florida St. Seminoles before a showdown with Virginia Tech.
The Florida St. Seminoles don't have a shot at the ACC title game since the Clemson Tigers are already the Atlantic Division winners, but they can prevent the Virginia Cavaliers from staying in the race for the Coastal Division championship with a victory in Saturday's game.
The Cavaliers are 7-3 and need to defeat the Seminoles this week and the Virginia Tech Hokies to close out the season. It's a tall order. Florida State fans believe the Cavaliers are lucky to be where they are, especially after a so-so game against the Duke Blue Devils.
But Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher isn't overlooking the Cavaliers. He sees a tough game against a physical defensive team that played tough against the Miami Hurricanes, a team the Seminoles just beat. Still, Florida State is favored by 17-1/2 points by the odds makers. This one might not be close.
Game date, time: 7:30 pm ET, Saturday, Nov. 19
Location: Doak Campbell Stadium, Tallahassee FL
TV channel: ESPN2
Spread: Florida State favored by 17-1/2 points
Series history: Florida State leads, 14-2
