Syracuse knew that it was going to have a serious challenge on its hands last weekend when facing Florida State. The Seminoles have eviscerated everyone in their path this season, and oddsmakers had the Orange as more than five touchdown underdogs.
Unfortunately for Syracuse, the Seminoles did what everyone thought they would, and turned the game into a 59-3 blowout. Today, Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer reflected on the loss a bit and had extremely high praise for FSU:
Scott Shafer on Florida State: “That team is the best football team I’ve seen or coached against live in my whole career.”

That’s saying something coming from Shafer, who has been involved in games against some serious opponents (he previously coached at Michigan, Stanford, and Illinois, among other stops). He might be right though — Florida State has been nothing short of spectacular in 2013. It remains to be seen if FSU will make it to the BCS National Championship Game, but right now, not many are betting against the Seminoles.
