Update 8:06 p.m. Rodemaker is out, and Brock Glenn is in.

Update Saturday, 11:55 a.m. Tate Rodemaker’s father Alan said on sports radio Saturday morning that his son is “50/50” to play today against Louisville. FSU is a 1-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook as of now.

The Florida State Seminoles are taking an undefeated 12-0 record into the 2023 ACC Championship Game. They will face Louisville on Saturday, December 2 with kickoff set for 8 p.m. ET from Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina on ABC.

Florida State found much of its success from quarterback Jordan Travis, but he suffered a season-ending injury two weeks ago against North Alabama. Junior quarterback Tate Rodemaker took over under center and has kept the winning streak alive. Rodemaker took a big hit against the win against Florida last week and was slow to get up.

Freshman quarterback Brock Glenn entered the game, but only played a handful of snaps. Rodemaker was allowed back in the game, and running back Trey Benson capped off a scoring drive with a 26-yard touchdown to clinch the victory for the ‘Noles.

While not officially announced, there are rumors that Rodemaker is in concussion protocol and will not be able to play against Louisville. Notably, the line for the game has moved a point in favor of Louisville in the last 24 hours. The Seminoles are now favored by only 1.5 points at DraftKings Sportsbook.

At this point, everything surrounding the FSU quarterback on Saturday is pure speculation. The Noles are keeping the injury designation close to the chest, which isn’t surprising. If Rodemaker can’t play, there will be a freshman quarterback under center for the championship game. It is likeliest to be Glenn followed by AJ Duffy.
