Florida State Football: Power Ranking 2014 Schedule from Easiest to Toughest
USA TODAY Sports
FSU won the 2013 national title with a perfect season. Can the Seminoles do it again, but this time against a tougher schedule?

The 2014 Florida State football schedule is a far cry from the 2013 version that drew criticism from analysts and fans.

Toss out Bethune-Cookman, Nevada and Idaho on the nonconference slate. In are Oklahoma State, Citadel and Notre Dame (Florida is the mainstay, of course). The Seminoles now have one of the toughest nonconference schedules in the nation, with The Oklahoman's Berry Tramel ranking FSU's No. 1.

While it may be a tough schedule, it's not inconceivable for FSU to go 12-0 and play for the ACC title. The Seminoles gain a few schedule breaks, earning bye weeks before the ACC opener at home against Clemson on Sept. 20 and before a Thursday night game at Louisville on Oct. 30.

Still, state rivals will be waiting in November. FSU will have to win again at Miami on Nov. 15 and then defeat Florida at home on Nov. 29 to have a chance to repeat as national champions.

Let's take a look at FSU's schedule from the easiest opponent to the toughest.
