A pair of two-win teams will face off on Saturday afternoon as the Duke Blue Devils will be on the road to take on the Florida State Seminoles in an ACC battle. Both programs have been ravaged by COVID for extended periods of time this season and it’s a miracle that this game is still going on. The Blue Devils were shut out last Saturday by Miami 41-0, while the Seminoles haven’t played in almost a month due to a spike in virus cases within the team.
Duke Blue Devils
Duke will look to rebound after their 41-0 drubbing on Saturday. The Blue Devils have been horrendous in ACC play picking up just one win and eight losses in conference competition.
Junior quarterback Chase Brice isn’t quite living up to the five-star hype he had out of high school. He threw for just 94 yards last week against a very bad Miami pass defense and now has thrown for 2089 yards with nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions on the season.
David Cutcliffe has a pair of running backs he likes to lean on; junior running back Mateo Durant had just 48 yards on the ground against Miami and has rushed for 690 yards with seven touchdowns in total. Senior running back Deon Jackson scampered for 14 yards against the Hurricanes and has 648 rushing yards with four touchdowns this season.
The Blue Devils defense hasn’t been very good this season and has allowed 56 points in two games and at least 24 points or more in the rest of their contests this season. They give up an average of 437.1 scrimmage yards per game which 94th out of 127 teams in the FBS.
Florida State Seminoles
Florida State hasn’t played a game in nearly one month and the last time that they played they lost on the road by 16 points to NC State. Starting quarterback Jordan Travis was injured in the game against the Wolfpack and was set to miss some time, but due to the time off from COVID, he should be able to play in this game.
Travis hasn’t played since November and when he did, he didn’t have the best performance the last time on the field. He threw for 106 yards with an interception and was sacked five times. On the season he’s thrown for 864 yards to go with four touchdowns and five interceptions.
Jordan’s favorite targets are wideouts Ontaria Wilson and Tamorrion Terry who have combined for 621 yards with three touchdown receptions this season. They will face a Blue Devils defense that allowed 304 passing yards last week to half a Miami due to COVID issues and give up an average of 235 passing yards per contest.
The FSU defense hasn’t played in a month and has barely practiced so they could in for a long day on Saturday. When they did play though they allowed an average of 36.1 points and 464 yards of offense per game. They will have to try to cause pressure on Duke if they want a chance at winning this game as they have allowed 36 sacks this season to lead the ACC.

Free Week 15 NCAA Football Prediction:
This game screams over to me. Duke has allowed at least 24 points every single game this season, and even though the Florida State offense has been shaky all season I think they can at least manage 25+ points against this defense. The Seminoles themselves aren’t the greatest team on defense as they allow 36.1 points per game which is ranked 104th out of 127 teams in the country, so Duke should be able to get theirs as well. Give me the over 57 to hit comfortably.
