Syracuse football wrapped up its 2021 non-conference slate with a thrilling upset win over Liberty inside the Carrier Dome this past Friday night. That victory, by a 24-21 count following a last-second Orange field goal, pushed the ‘Cuse record to 3-1 as the team prepares for Atlantic Coast Conference competition for the duration of its 2021 regular-season calendar.

Once again, running back Sean Tucker was tremendous. Garrett Shrader, the Mississippi State transfer, earned his first career start for the Orange. While he has room for improvement in the passing department, Shrader didn’t throw any interceptions, and he rushed for two scores.

Going up against a prolific Flames offense led by a Heisman Trophy-contending quarterback, the ‘Cuse defense did its part, and then some. Syracuse football made key plays at pivotal moments on defense, and the team’s home conquest of a strong opponent like Liberty provides a huge momentum boost as the Orange looks toward potentially earning a bowl berth in 2021.

Now, the ‘Cuse still has eight games remaining in ACC play, and it all starts with a trip to the Sunshine State this Saturday, Oct. 2, for an afternoon league battle with once-mighty Florida State. The Seminoles, one of the iconic brands in college football for numerous decades, have fallen on tough times of late.

To put it bluntly, FSU has proven dreadful to date in 2021. The Seminoles are 0-4, with their most recent loss, at home, to Louisville, 31-23. Prior to that, Florida State fell to highly ranked Notre Dame, Jacksonville State and Wake Forest. Syracuse football has a prime opportunity this coming Saturday to pick up an ACC road victory against a bad FSU squad.

Syracuse vs. Florida State prediction for week 5

I’m nervous about picking the Orange to beat Florida State on the road. Here’s why. Syracuse football just notched a monumental win in outlasting Liberty in week four. Could there be a let-down effect for the ‘Cuse versus FSU after stunning the Flames? The Seminoles are dreadful, but are they due for a success, particularly since they’re suiting up against Syracuse football on their own turf?

Despite these concerns, I’m going with my gut here, and I think that the Orange will take care of business versus Florida State away from the Hill.
