This Atlantic Coast Conference game between NC State and FSU on Saturday Oct.26th features the homecoming of former and legendary FSU Coach of two national championship teams Bobby BOWDEN and his first return since 2009 and this is the 33rd time these two teams have met and this afternoon’s game is in Tallahassee, Florida.
This is a rematch of the game of 2012 when the FSU team fell apart in the second half and were upset at NC State 17-16 in Raleigh, North Carolina. FSU was troubled but a five week winning streak and ACC Division title was enough to satisfy the Tallahassee fans.
The ACC matchup is the seventh game for both teams with the Seminoles being 6-0 (4-0) and the Wolfpack 3-3! The Seminoles are coming off an upset win over#3 Clemson 51-14 while the Wolfpack had a loss at home to Syracuse 24-10!
Information for the fans who love to Bet on College football at a sportsbook is that NC States new coach Dave Doern who replaced the fired Obrien was formerly the head coach at Northern Illinois and his team lost to the Seminoles in their 1st Bowl appearance in the Orange Bowl. Doern took over the ACC team that went 7-5 last year and was just 4-4 in the ACC matches. In addition he started without a seasoned QB and WR corps and in 2012 the team lost five of its main defensive players including two secondary veterans. Weekly the Pack is improving and there will be a lot of emotion in this game with the Seminoles action to get revenge for their defeat by NC State in 2012!
This is a big game for both teams as the Seminole continue their BCS Bowl aspirations having just this week placed in the No. 2 BCS standing behind No.1 Alabama and in addition this is the Homecoming weekend or so called Bobbie BOWDEN day honoring the former Coach with many events taking place and to top it all off the Seminole will be seeking revenge from last year’s loss to the Wolfpack in Raleigh, so this game will bring back a lot of memories to all parties.
The opening line at SBG Global and many other sportbooks that support thousands of wagering fans, can experience the Seminoles favored at -29 ½ with all odds subject to change as game day gets closer, and fan influence will attribute to movement in the available daily odds. Certainly the Seminoles will be glad to be on home turf and their trip to death valley and the incredible level of crowd noise! With all the activities this weekend at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Florida the sports fans will experience a very excited FSU and noisy fan base! Good Luck to both ACC Opponents.
