For the majority of the season, Michigan had its eyes on the College Football Playoff. There is likely a bit of a letdown effect for the Wolverines as they head to the Orange Bowl rather than playing for a title. The Seminoles finished their season on a high note.

Freshman quarterback Deondre Francois has almost a full season under his belt. Meanwhile, Michigan quarterback Wilton Speight battled injuries to close out the season. Heavy likes Florida State to pull off the upset as the Seminoles take advantage of a disappointed Michigan team.

Heavy’s Pick: Florida State 24 Michigan 21. Florida State +7. Under on the Point Total.
