Florida State and Georgia Tech play on Saturday, Oct. 29. The game will be live streamed on fuboTV (free trial).
Florida State looks to snap a three-game slide and push closer toward bowl-eligibility for the first time since the 2017 season, while Georgia Tech is seeking its first three-win month in four years. Both programs could use momentum in what has been up-and-down seasons. The Yellow Jackets are 2-1 under interim coach Brent Key, while the Seminoles opened 4-0 before cooling off with consecutive losses to ranked teams.
The Seminoles’ rush offense averages 204.43 yards per game and is coming off a 206-yard day against Clemson, which has a top-10 rush defense. Trey Benson and Lawrance Toafili have paced an FSU ground game that could be without top rusher Treshaun Ward. Georgia Tech has improved of late in this area but is still allowing 177.43 rushing yards per game, 101st in the FBS.
