BTP Pregame Prediction: Florida State

So how’s this thing gonna go? Hopefully not bad...

NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Florida State Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

With two relatively easy (even if not confidence-boosting) wins after the letdown against South Carolina to open the year, the Wolfpack kick off ACC play with a noon tilt in Tallahassee versus the highly ranked Seminoles of Florida State. As per normal, each BTP contributor provides their score prediction below, plus a Twitter-esque 140 character-constrained comment on their predicted outcome. Let’s get to it!


Prediction: 22-30 (L)

Comment: “14-10 NCSU at half. FSU O gets rolling in 2nd half. NCSU goes for 2 late to cut it to a 1 score game, but D can't get the ball back“


Prediction: 28-20 (W)

Comment: “There is no doubt in my mind that we will outplay FSU, it comes down to avoiding mistakes and finishing well. I think we do both“

Steven Muma

Prediction: 17-16 (W)

Comment: “Told my brain to take a break for a minute and just wrote some numbers in there and I'll probably be really wrong but who knows.“


Prediction: 21-28 (L)

Comment: “The defense will break down a few too many times and the Wolfpack won't be able to complete a comeback. I hope I'm wrong.“


Prediction: 21-17 (W)

Comment: “Offense struggles against a superb FSU defense, but should be able score more than FSU's true freshman QB can produce“


Prediction: 21-28 (L)

Comment: “This game will be wildly weird, but ultimately FSU proves to be just too much “


Prediction: 17-34 (L)

Comment: “I’m sorry in advance, but that defense scares the crap out of me, and I don’t see our defense being able to stop the big plays.“

Alec Lower

Prediction: 17-20 (L)

Comment: “NC State does one of those things where it should win but creatively finds a way not to. Alec defenestrates himself.“

BTP Staff Cumulative Prediction: 21-24 (L)
