Florida State vs Georgia preview

They should rename the 2023 Orange Bowl the Uncomforta-Bowl (or Load-of-Bowl) in honor of the hoopla triggered by the CFP Selection Committee's tenuous decision to rank both Florida State and Georgia outside the top four, and it's safe to say the the clash at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday will go down in college football infamy.

To recap, the Seminoles made unwanted history as the first unbeaten Power 5 conference champion to miss out on the playoffs. The Bulldogs, meanwhile, were on a 29-game winning streak – including back-to-back national championships – before losing the SEC title game by a field goal. That solitary defeat dropped them from No.1 to No.6 in the rankings.

Starting QB Jordan Travis' leg break is what bumped Florida State down the pecking order, and such has been the strength of feeling around the Seminoles' sub that the ACC Player of the Year has even felt moved to apologise for the timing of his injury. Despite impressing, backup Tate Rodemaker hasn't had enough minutes to win the jury over, though a concussion means that FSU's QB3 Brock Glenn may need to take the reins on Saturday.

The good news for Glenn is that the Seminoles defense has restricted opponents to 20 points or fewer in nine straight games. That said, during that stretch they haven't come up against an offense helmed by Carson Beck, Brock Bowers and Ladd McConkey.

Florida State vs Georgia live stream: watch in the US without cable


College football fans can watch Florida State vs Georgia on ESPN in the US, with kick-off set for 4pm ET / 1pm PT on Saturday afternoon.

How to watch Florida State vs Georgia without cable:

If you don't have ESPN on cable, fear not. A subscription to the OTT streaming service Sling TV would get you access to 41 of this season's 43 Bowl games. 

Sling Orange carries ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3, and usually costs $40. Sling Blue carries Fox and NBC in select markets, and usually costs $45 per month.

The combined Sling Orange + Blue plan, meanwhile, gets you all of the channels above for $60. Whichever plan you choose, you'll get a discount on your first month if you're a new user.

The only relevant channels missing from Sling's lineup are CBS and CW Network, which are showing a single Bowl game each. 

A costlier alternative is Fubo, which includes ESPN, CBS, ABC, Fox, NBC, ESPN2 and more than 150 other top channels in its base-level Pro plan, but not CW Network. 

A subscription costs $74.99 per month but you'll get $20 off your first month

If you subscribe to Sling TV, FuboTV, or any other US streaming service and find yourself unable to access coverage because you're out of the country, consider using a VPN as outlined below - we rate ExpressVPN as the best of the best.

How to watch Florida State vs Georgia from outside your country

We've set out how you can live stream Florida State vs Georgia in a number of countries around the world. However, if you're away travelling for pleasure or for work, you probably won't be able to tune in like you normally would at home. This is the result of geo-blocking – best understood as digital borders that restrict certain services and content to specific parts of the world.

You can get around these digital borders by using one of the best VPNs, which can also offer robust protection from cybercriminals and government snooping. They're really easy to use too.
