Orange Bowl Classic Features Two Underrated Teams

The Oklahoma State Cowboys and the 19th-ranked Florida State Seminoles will meet in the Orange Bowl Classic on Saturday when they battle at BB&T Center.

Florida State is one of only six unbeaten NCAA Division I programs left in the nation. Their 9-0 record will be put to the test against a good OSU Cowboys team.

Oddsmakers opened the Seminoles as -6.5-point favorites versus the Cowboys, while the game’s total opened at 154. The line is now FSU -6 and the total has dropped to 152.

In their last action, Florida State was a 72-53 winner at home against the Tulane Green Wave. They covered the -13.5-point spread as favorites.

The victory extended Florida State’s home winning streak to 25 games dating back to the 2015-16 season. The Seminoles are beating opponents by an average of 20 points during their fast start. They are led by guard Terance Mann, who is average 15.6 points.

The 9-0 start is also historic for the school. Only one Florida State team has had a better beginning to the season — the 2003-04 team, which went 10-0 before losing a game.

Cowboys Look for Fresh Start in Orange Bowl Classic

Oklahoma State was a 78-66 loser in their most recent outing at home against Wichita State Shockers. They failed to cover the +5.5-point spread as underdogs.

The Cowboys are looking for a morale boost after having a tough week following the dismissal of two players. Guard Davon Dillard and freshman guard Zack Dawson were dismissed from the team Wednesday. They were kicked off the team as they “failed to meet unspecified standards set by the program.”

Both players had actually already been suspended prior to the season for unknown reasons. They missed a total of six games between the two of them.

Before the Wichita State loss the Cowboys had won four straight games. Their only other defeat came against No. 16 Texas A&M on Nov. 20.

The Cowboys are led by guard Jeffrey Carroll with 12.7 points per game. Oklahoma State is also expecting to have 6-foot-11 forward Yankuba Sima eligible and playing for the first time this season. He is a transfer from St. John’s.
