On defense, Amari Gainer leads Florida State with 48 total tackles while Asante Samuel Jr. has a team-high 3 interceptions.
The NC State Wolfpack will try to rebound from back-to-back losses after a 44-41 loss to Miami-Florida last time out.

Florida State is 8-17-3 ATS in their last 28 games against a team with a winning record and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the over is 5-0 in their last 5 road games. NC State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games in November while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 conference games. Florida State is 3-15-1 ATS in the last 19 meetings between these two teams and 0-8-1 ATS in the last 9 meetings between these two teams at NC State.
It’s safe to say that NC State’s had the better season up to this point, but the Wolfpack have been horrendous on the defensive side of the ball over the last couple of games, giving up an average of 46 points to UNC and Miami. Granted, both of those teams are ranked, but FSU needs to win out to have a shot at bowl eligibility this season and I honestly think we have a dogfight on our hands in this game. I’ll take my shot with Florida State and the points in this game.
