FSU football finished with an ACC record that had them third from the bottom this season – where they sit with other bottom feeders from big conferences.
In the first 13 seasons that the FSU football team played as members of the Atlantic Coast Conference, the Seminoles finished outside of first place in the conference just twice – at a time when the league had just nine to 11 teams and was all one giant ground. In the 14 seasons since, including 2018, the Noles have finished lower than second place six times.
Included in that would be the last two seasons where the men in garnet and gold finished sixth and fifth in the Atlantic Division respectively – placing them among the bottom of the Power Five conference and putting them with some other “elite” company across the sport who also didn’t show up this season.
In light of that, we took a look at who the Seminoles would face from the other Power Five conferences if the games were organized by where teams finished in the conference standings – of course, since FSU football was 12th in the ACC last season they won’t face anyone from the Big 12 since that conference still just has 10 teams for some insane reason.
