After coming close to going undefeated for two consecutive seasons, the Florida State Seminoles are entering the 2015-16 season on a rare losing streak of one game, as their back-to-back National Championship hopes were dashed by the Oregon Ducks last season in the first-ever College Football Playoff.
This season, with Jameis Winston gone—former Heisman Trophy winner, National Championship winner and No. 1 pick in the 2015 NFL Draft—the Seminoles have 28-1 odds to win the National Championship, according to multiple websites who keep track of betting line information.
Teams listed in front of Florida State are Michigan State, LSU and Clemson, which are all listed at 25-1. Clemson is in the ACC conference with Florida State, as those two teams have the best chance of representing the conference. Closely behind Florida State is Georgia, Oklahoma, Stanford and UCLA, all with 33-1 odds to win it all.
With the season fast approaching, below are prices for Florida State tickets on the secondary market, provided by TiqIQ.com, to a few of their toughest obstacles in trying to return to the College Football Playoff.
