The Florida State Seminoles are riding a five game win streak as they get set to host the Virginia Cavaliers. Virginia is on a hot streak as well, winning five of their last six games, and they're still in the hunt to play in the ACC championship game if things fall into place. The Noles are coming off a win over rival Miami that saw the Noles struggle early on, but their defense has been playing lights out and kept them in the game.

In their history, Virginia has only beaten Florida State twice in the series history. Quarterback Michael Rocco has played efficiently enough to support the Cavs rushing attack led by Perry Jones and Kevin Parks. The Cavs have played well defensively lately as well, allowing just 21.6 points per game. They'll need to contain E.J. Manuel, who is from Virginia, at not let him get going rushing the football and running option.
