Dabo Swinney wanting his arch rival to win against his alma mater?!? BLASPHEMY!
Dabo Swinney on if he's pulling for his alma mater Alabama or conference foe FSU in the opener "I'm pulling for the Noles."— Matt Connolly (@MattatTheState) July 13, 2017
When you think about it though it makes perfect sense. When the Tigers take on Florida State on November 11, they want the Seminoles to be as highly-ranked as possible. A win against No. 1 FSU would be catapult up the credibility list or a notch in the "good loss" column.
