Florida State vs. USF 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Melina Vastola-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Florida State looks to avoid a trap game against USF.

With their national stock rising, the No. 4 Florida State Seminoles take on the South Florida Bulls in a key non-conference showdown at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.

In the Seminoles' first true road test of the season, Florida State will be tested against the Bulls' threatening offensive attack, led by dual-threat quarterback B.J. Daniels, who also happens to be a native of Tallahassee — the Seminoles' stomping grounds.

The 4-0 Seminoles are led by quarterback E.J. Manuel, who has gotten off to a fast start in 2012, as the senior has passed for eight touchdowns against just one interception while passing for 905 yards over his first four games. The Seminoles have also featured a strong running game led by halfbacks Chris Thompson and James Wilder Jr., who have combined for more than 600 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The Bulls feature the 66th-ranked scoring defense, while the Seminoles have scored the second-most points in the country.

Time and Date: Sept. 29, 6 p.m. ET

Location: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Fla.

TV: ESPN

Spread: Florida State is favored by 17 or 17.5 points, depending on book.
