The availability of Florida State quarterback Tate Rodemaker in the Atlantic Coast Conference title game will be a game-day decision, ESPN reported Friday.

The No. 4 Seminoles (12-0) meet No. 14 Louisville (10-2) on Saturday in Charlotte, N.C., with both the conference crown and a possible selection to the College Football Playoff at stake.

Rodemaker assumed the starting job when Jordan Travis suffered a serious leg injury in the game against North Alabama on Nov. 18. While Florida State has not announced that Rodemaker sustained a concussion, he took a shot to the head last weekend in a 24-15 win over Florida. He left that game but did return.

ESPN reported that Rodemaker hasn’t been a full practice participant this week. A Florida State spokesperson told ESPN that the Seminoles and Rodemaker are going “through the process” to “see what that means for Saturday.”

If Rodemaker can’t play, freshman Brock Glenn would step in. Glenn has seen limited action and is 2-of-4 passing for 35 yards. He also has carried the ball six times for 37 yards and a touchdown.

Rodemaker is 32-for-56 for 510 yards with five touchdowns and no interceptions in nine games.

With the past decade dominated by Clemson, Florida State has not won the ACC title since 2014. Pitt (2021) was the only team other the Clemson to win the ACC championship since 2014.
