How South Carolina Wins: South Carolina has just been dismantled by Auburn during the SEC title game and will look to regroup against Florida State.
They've been somewhat inconsistent this year, looking great at times during their takedown of defending national champs Alabama, and have also looked horrible in their loss against unranked Kentucky and in their most recent game against Auburn.
But this game—a bowl game against a top ACC opponent—is just as important, and they'll come out to play.
How Florida State Wins: Christian Ponder's health is still up in the air; with him, they're definitely a much stronger football team. However, Florida State also needs much better running out of their backfield in this matchup for them to find any kind of success.
Prediction: South Carolina 24, Florida State 17
