When: Nov. 24

Where: Doak Campbell Stadium, Tallahassee, Fla.

Why it’s No. 17: This in-state game isn’t as sexy as it was in the 1990s, but it’s still a great rivalry. FSU should be in contention for an ACC title, while Florida is trying to get back to the top of the rough-and-tumble SEC after two down seasons.

Series History: Florida leads 33-21-2

Rivalry on scale of 1-100: 100. Gators and ‘Noles may share family ties on Thanksgiving, but don’t be surprised if a few drumsticks are thrown across the table while talking about the upcoming Saturday game. Students and alumni from these two schools don’t like each other.
