Syracuse vs. Florida State takes place in the Carrier Dome, where the Orange have taken down big-name opponents each of the last two years.

Syracuse is 2-0 in year three under Dino Babers. The Orange have been putting up big point totals, but surrendered 42 points against Western Michigan in Week 1, most of which came in a bonkers third quarter.

Florida State wishes it only had one really troubling quarter. The Seminoles were handled at home by Virginia Tech in Week 1, and had to come from behind against Samford last week.

ESPN's FPI prediction for Syracuse vs. Florida State is out.

Syracuse is actually a slight edge at home, even against a team with more talent on paper. FPI gives the Orange a 57-percent chance to win.
