The Seminoles finished 13-1 and won their first ACC Championship in nine years, beating Miami and Florida. That success will be seen at the Florida Capitol in the coming days as the new year begins. Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Saturday that the Capitol will be lit up in blue and gold on Jan. 2 to celebrate the achievements of FSU and the number.
