Week 11 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a key ACC matchup between the CFB Playoff ranked No. 23 Florida State Seminoles and the Syracuse Orange.
Florida State has bounced back from three-straight ACC losses to win their last two games, including a blowout of state-rival Miami last week, 45-3.
Meanwhile, Syracuse has hit the skids heading into their last home game. The Orange have lost three straight games against winning teams to fall to 6-3. That includes last week's no-show at Pitt when the Orange offense gained just 145 yards in a 19-9 setback.

Florida State vs Syracuse Prediction & Pick
Oddsmakers opened FSU -6 on Sunday, and the total has dropped a few points. A 50% chance of rain is in the forecast, and it will cool down to near 40 degrees Saturday night in Syracuse.
Florida State has rushed for 227 YPG over their last three contests, and QB Jordan Travis has passed for 852 yards and 8 TDs over that stretch. Syracuse has been annihilated on the ground over their last three games, allowing 233 YPG. So while the season average of Syracuse's run defense is 154 YPG, there are concerns in this matchup again.
Adding to Syracuse's issues is the status of QB Garrett Schrader due to an ongoing ankle issue. He missed last week's game at Pitt after being knocked out against Notre Dame. Expect him to play, but not be at 100%. He's at his best when he can move around and run, as he's the team's No. 2 rusher with more than 370 yards and 6 rushing TDs to go with his 14 passing touchdowns.
While the spread has been adjusted based on recent results, the momentum, personnel and stats favor Florida State to earn another win.
Final Score Prediction: Florida State: 30 | Syracuse: 19

Florida State's pass defense ranks No. 1 in the ACC, allowing 165 passing yards per game. Syracuse's pass defense is solid as well, but FSU's offensive pass attack is top 3 in the ACC at 271 passing yards per game.
The 'Noles are No. 5 in the country in yards per play margin and they should continue their climb against the banged-up Orange.
