FSU has won four straight games by at least 25 points, the longest active streak in the nation and the second-longest streak by any team this season. The 'Noles have outscored their opponents 173-39 during the run and have yet to allow over three points in the first half dating back to October's loss to Clemson.

The Seminoles have already qualified for the postseason but they have an opportunity to improve their bowl projection with a strong finish to the regular season.

Florida State wraps up its 12-game slate with a matchup against the rival Florida Gators on Friday night. The Seminoles and Gators kick off at 7:30 p.m. on ABC in Doak Campbell Stadium.
