It’s been a hard to imagine start of the season for Florida State.
In just four weeks, the Seminoles lost their starting quarterback to a season-ending knee injury, dropped to 0-2 for the first time in 25 years, had a game canceled and another postponed due to Hurricane Irma and fell from No. 3 to unranked in the AP Top 25 poll.
Despite the unfortunate string of bad luck, one Atlantic Coast Conference coach still has confidence the Seminoles can compete with any one in college football.
“Florida State has played two really good teams, and trust me, Florida State is as good as anybody out there, and that will probably prove to be the case by the end of the season,” Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said Wednesday on the ACC’s weekly media teleconference.
Florida State will play Clemson on Nov. 11 at Clemson Memorial Stadium.
