The Seminoles buried Colorado in the last round, but the big question mark hanging over the team is its tendency to concede turnovers. They did it 15 times against the Buffaloes but got away with it, though there’s no way that the Wolverines will be as accommodating as Colorado.
The 2018 runners-up cruised past Texas Southern and LSU in the first two rounds, and a place in the Elite 8 is a basic expectation.
However, March Madness is known for shock results as much as it is for producing future NBA stars, and in order to progress the Wolverines are going to have to find a way to check Florida State’s growing momentum.
Follow our guide below to tune into a March Madness live stream and watch Michigan vs Florida State online from anywhere – including some great ways to watch March Madness free online in certain countries, if you draw up the right play.
