They made it, at least Duke can say that and hold their heads high, but I don't think the Seminoles onslaught will be very pretty!  No line out yet .......

Question, lets say Ohio State wins the Big 10 Championship, would you rather see them play for the Championship or a 1 loss Auburn team if they win the SEC Championship?

This has to be the highest conference championship line ever, but FSU just saw the best D and athletes they'll face all season in UF so after Winston saw that kind of scheme and talent at SEC speed, this Duke D will look like its in slow motion and he will have a field day picking them apart like he has done with every ACC foe. They will score more than 37 I promise u that the only upside for duke in slowing down this Offense is that it's a 40% chance of rain in the forecast in Charlotte.

Looking ahead I'm a gator fan who lives in Alabama and I actually hate that Alabama lost bc on paper they were the only team I felt that could matchup with FSU team but don't get me wrong I still wanted FSU to win bc it's terrible living in a state with Alabama fans, Auburn fans are not that bad bc they are still shocked with their mouths open for the past few weeks in amazement. Now I just feel like the BCS championship will be pretty much a Seminole party whoever they play. But please be Leary football fans that bama is #4 if both ohio st and Aub lose which is possible, bama can slide right back into the big game and you say no that won't happen well it happen when they snuck back into the big game when they ended playin LSU for the title. VEGAS WANTS BAMA BC IT WOULDVE BEEN A SINGLE DIGIT LINE AND MONEY WOULDVE BEEN MOVING EVERYWHERE.

FSU would steamroll Ohio St and Auburn???   Hahahaha  They may win but I'd be careful assuming FSU is this 80's Nebraska type wrecking machine.  The ACC is a joke.  Clemson was a solid win and that's it.  The rest are pushovers that at least 15 other teams would go undefeated against.  I'm not saying FSU is not deserving, but realistically they still are not a dominant team beyond the others.  I'd actually still bet on Bama above them in a game.  But even if they are the best, they are not head and shoulders above Auburn and Ohio St.  Their resume is full of weak teams and one big win.  I doubt very seriously they's have run the SEC table.  I'd have bet a fortune they'd have a loss by now in that conference.

That being said, they should steamroll Duke.  And actually that says it all about the ACC...they are playing Duke for the damn title.  Wow.

I agree with echelon, the acc is a joke, however i still think fsu is the best team in the country, but it would be very unlikely they'd ever go thru an sec schedule undefeated. Anyways for this game it's gonna be ugly for duke, noles minus whatever , it's not gonna matter. Real ugly real fast for the dukies.

The joke here is OSU,  Giving up 41 to a BAD Mich tm, I don't give a F if it was a "rivalry" gm.  There are At least 5 tms that would beat them.  FSU, Bama, Aub, Mo, Ok St & probably SCar & Stanford.

Terrible matchup for a conference championship game.  But it doesn't change that FSU is excellent running and throwing the ball against anyone, Florida is not a pushover defense.  Noles are also solid on defense and was able to totally shut down a pretty good Clemson offense that was at home.  Add a Groza finalist as the FG kicker and they are the total package.  Duke is a nice story but just an average team that has performed inconsistently. 

Weather may be the deciding factor in whether I take FSU and give the points or not.  There is nothing that would encourage me to bet on Duke, even if the line goes to 38.

noles dont want history to repeat itself like last year. noles will win but will conserve their players. incase bama does sneak back in as #2, noles win but duke cover. 

devils +28.5

It goes to show you to take the OVER on any team that plays against Ohio State.  I don't know about this saturday though, since MSU has a pretty solid defense.  MSU doesn't score a lot of points as well.  If OSU does sneak past MSU, the OVER for the BCS will be the pick. 
      People are trippin' when they say the ACC is a joke.  Teams in the ACC aren't any worse than Big 10.  The only difference is that FSU is so dominant that they make all of the ACC look like high school varsity squads.  Florida is by far the best defense FSU faced this year and FSU picked them apart.  As far as this saturday, it'll be FSU all day.  I would even go so far as to say that the game will be over half way through 2nd Quarter. FSU will cover by half-time.

When I hear people say the ACC is a joke, thats fine but did FSU obliterate every team in their conference on schedule and went 9-2 ATS and one of those ATS losses is when jimbo put the threes in the 3rd qt against NC State to conserve the starters for Miami the following week. I've been arguing this all day with Auburn fans here in Alabama. 2 Miracles plays and you are here, ok the 109 return is not a miracle but its quite unbelievable and yes a win is a win but to me how you win matters more in my eyes. Not to mention we will see how Auburn's #100 ranked pass defense does against Mizzou wide out attack even tho Mizzou still does not have the best QB in NCAA which does make a difference in Winston and if you dont believe me in QB play ask Auburn when they had Cam Newton!!

I am leaning to the blue devils. I can see the noles getting out to a big early lead maybe covering early. when they see they have it in the bag will they bench the starters to keep from having someone injured and possibly missing the big game. then duke putting up a couple garbage scores to cover.

Based on the State Attorney's statement yesterday, it is 95%+ all charges will be dropped today, that may give FSU even more adrenaline for blowing Duke out.  Average margin of victory in conference games for FSU is 39 points per game, for Duke it is 4 points per game.  Mismatch, imo, question is just how much.  I wouldn't take Duke with 35 but still not sure I want to lay 30.  I will either play FSU or not bet this one at all.

Florida State has and continues to be my #1 with Missouri #2.

Let's just go back to the bowl tie-ins and vote after the bowls!

Of course FSU roles.

Duke is a nice story but I got to with most of y'all and say that FSU puts up 50+.  Duke's offense doesn't have the firepower to stay up with this team, and I really think that FSU may make this one ugly.

FSU has had one game all season that they won by under 20 points and that was at Boston College.  Pitt beat Duke by 3 and FSU beat Pitt by 28.

If Duke keeps this within 20 points that would be a great effort.  I have seen Duke play.  They have got some talented players.  I just don't think the front lines can hold up very well for 4 quarters.
