If Jordan Travis was calling the shots, there's no doubt that unbeaten Florida State would be heavy favorites over Louisville in the 2023 ACC Championship Game on Saturday. However, a bad ankle injury for the Seminoles QB (and former Cardinal) means Tate Rodemaker will start in his place at Bank of America Stadium, narrowing the odds significantly.
Louisville vs Florida State is live on ABC and ESPN3 in the U.S., Sky Sports in the U.K., and Kayo Sports in Australia. Don't worry if you're away — you can watch Louisville vs Florida State from anywhere with a VPN.
In fact, this encounter is beginning to look like a good matchup from the Cardinals' perspective. Rodemaker has only had one game as the Seminoles' starting QB and, understandably, it saw the team's offensive production drop from 38.8 points per game to 24.
And while the Cardinals' pass defense is humdrum, their strength is stopping the run, and Seminoles RB Trey Benson hasn't exactly been setting the world alight. He's hit the 100 rushing yards marker just once this season, which hasn't been an issue with Travis on the field but could be a big one with Rodemaker likely to require a little bit of ground assistance.
Florida State's pass defense has been fearsome, but it's not had anywhere near as much joy against RBs, and the 1,076 rushing yards that Louisville's Jawhar Jordan has put up this season speak for themselves. Expect Jack Plummer to hand it off at near-enough every opportunity.
At the time of publication, Florida State are marginal -1 point favorites according to DraftKings, which illustrates just how central Travis has been to the Seminoles' offense.
