5 Bold Predictions for Florida State-Georgia Tech

Florida State hasn't lost a game in a little over two years and it's becoming somewhat ridiculous that no one has been able to take down the mighty college football giants despite all of the close games this year. The Seminoles will have to get past the strong run game of Georgia Tech in order to remain perfect and head to the first ever College Football Playoff.

Let's take a look at five bold predictions for the ACC title game.

If you're Jameis Winston, you have to be itching to prove all of the doubters wrong -- especially after a four-interception performance against Florida. The sophomore quarterback and reigning Heisman winner will get back to his old form, tossing five touchdown passes and no picks.

Sure, this team already averages over 300 yards on the ground per game this year, but it's the percentage of offensive output that comes on the ground that will be the real bold prediction. Don't be surprised if Georgia Tech relies on the run more than usual with DeAndre Smelter out, accounting for 90 percent of the offensive yardage.

This will be a great all-around offensive game for the Seminoles as Winston sees success and now freshman running back Dalvin Cook does, too. The young ball-carrier will rush for over 150 yards and reach the endzone on one occasion -- this is just the start of the Cook era in Tallahassee.

Justin Thomas has been a solid dual-threat quarterback all season, but he has not gotten that many opportunities to pass the ball. That won't change with Smelter -- his leading receiver who has double the receptions and triple the yardage of the next closest target -- out for the game with a torn ACL. Thomas will find himself running the ball 15-20 times while handing the ball off the rest of the way.

I don't know how they do it, but the Seminoles seem to have a knack for sneaking out of tight games with a win this year. This one will be no different as the game will be decided by less than 10 points and Florida State fans will once again be holding their breaths until the final ticks of the clock.
