Vegas says the Noles by 10 1/2
The Seminoles lost QB EJ Manuel to the NFL draft, but waiting in the wings is sensational redshirt freshman Jameis Winston. Drawing comparisons to Robert Griffin III, the nation's top quarterback recruit in 2012, he has the makings of a dual-threat star. And he's got plenty of returning talent on both sides of the ball to help him ease into the starting role.
For Pittsburgh, 2013 figures to be a rebuilding year, and will have to learn the ins and outs of a new conference in the ACC with multiple holes to fill. The defense should be fine and keep the team competitive, but the offense is a major concern.
The Panthers lose both of their leading rushers from last year's team, and QB Tino Sunseri is replaced by Tom Savage, a senior transfer from Arizona who hasn't played in a game since 2009. Florida State is a brutal first assignment for the inexperienced senior.
