After defeating ACC rivals Clemson on Saturday, the No. 4 Florida State Seminoles will head to Tampa to take on South Florida. The Bulls are 2-2 on the season, having lost their last two games to Rutgers and Ball State.

The Seminoles have been rolling to start the season. They've averaged just over 56 points per game, while allowing only 10 to their opponents. That scoring output is good for second in the nation, and their offense is currently ranked fourth in total yards. Senior quarterback E.J. Manuel has been extremely efficient in leading the Seminole attack so far this season.

If the Bulls hope to pull off the upset, Tallahassee native B.J. Daniels will need to have a big game. Daniels has thrown for 1,142 yards and nine touchdowns this season, but his 56.6 percent completion rate and six interceptions are a cause for concern for Bulls fans.

The game will be played in Tampa's Raymond James Stadium and is scheduled for 6 p.m. ET on Saturday. ESPN will televise the game, and it will also be streamed on WatchESPN.
