FSU No. 6 In ESPN's Too Early Top-25

Florida State comes in at No. 6 In ESPN's Too-Early Top-25.

Florida State is coming off a rebuilding year in 2015 where they won 10 games, didn't lose a home game, beat their in state rivals, and finished in the Top-15 of the AP Poll. Now 2016 is on the horizon, and ESPN put out their way too early Top-25. The Seminoles come in at No. 6, and is the second highest rated ACC team behind Clemson at No. 1.

Here is what ESPN had to say about the 2016 Seminoles:

"After winning a national championship in 2013 and reaching the College Football Playoff in '14, it was a bit of a rebuilding campaign for the Seminoles this past season. But FSU might be ready to challenge Clemson in the ACC, especially with every starter expected back on offense. The biggest question heading into spring practice: Can redshirt freshman Deondre Francois challenge quarterback Sean Maguire for the starting job? On defense, the Seminoles will have to replace two starting linebackers and two starting defensive backs. FSU opens the 2016 season against Ole Miss in Orlando, Florida, and it will also play Clemson and North Carolina at home during ACC play."

North Carolina at No. 17 and Louisville at No. 24 round out the ACC teams in the Top-25. To see the full article click here.
