Florida State University’s football schedule for the 2024 season is looking particularly favorable, notably due to an arrangement of home games and strategically placed bye weeks following their most challenging matchups. This advantageous schedule comes amidst the backdrop of a potentially destabilizing lawsuit within the ACC, but it appears Florida State may have been given a beneficial draw this year.
FSU’s Head Coach Mike Norvell shared his enthusiasm for the upcoming season’s home game lineup during a conversation on Sirius radio. Stressing the importance of performing well at home, Norvell’s optimism is palpable as he gears up for the year.
In a rather surprising sports betting turn, former LSU wide receiver Kayshon Boutte found himself on the losing end after betting on his performance against LSU. His wager of surpassing 82.5 yards and scoring a touchdown did not pan out, highlighting the unpredictability of sports betting.
Florida State is also making headlines off the field with efforts to build its “Tribe25” by recruiting full-time FSU students to join the #NoleFamily in their recruiting office. The drive to strengthen the team’s future is clear and inviting applications until February 2.

FSU’s basketball teams are having mixed fortunes; while the men’s team has seen success winning six of their last seven games, the women’s team is experiencing a slump and is urged to revisit their earlier season form to meet their established standards.
The Florida State softball team is continuing its run of excellence, having been predicted by coaches to top the ACC for the 11th consecutive season. Their dominance is further underscored by placing a conference-leading five players on the All-ACC Preseason Team, a testament to the depth and quality within their ranks.
In the broader sports landscape, newly-appointed head coach of the Atlanta Falcons, Raheim Morris, is reportedly in search of a quarterback, a move that follows a trend of teams seeking to revitalize their rosters for the 2024 season.
