Rankings from AP Poll

The 2016 Florida State Seminoles football team represented Florida State University in the sport of American football during the 2016 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The Seminoles competed in the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference and were led by seventh-year head coach Jimbo Fisher. Home games were played at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Florida.

In 2015, the Seminoles won 10 games and appeared in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Safety Jalen Ramsey and kicker Roberto Aguayo went on to be selected in the NFL Draft.

Prior to the start of the 2016 season, Dalvin Cook, Derwin James, Roderick Johnson and DeMarcus Walker were named pre-season All-Americans.[1] In the pre-season media poll, Florida State was picked to finish second in the ACC Atlantic and Dalvin Cook was picked as runner-up for ACC Player of the Year[2] while Cook, Roderick Johnson, Travis Rudolph, DeMarcus Walker, and Derwin James were named to the pre-season All-ACC team.[3]

Florida State finished the regular season with nine wins and was picked to play in the Orange Bowl, a fifth straight appearance in a major bowl game, where they defeated Michigan to finish with double digit wins for the fifth straight season and secure a top ten finish in the polls. During the season, the Seminoles notched their seventh consecutive win over Miami and their fourth consecutive win over Florida, making this senior class the first to go unbeaten against their rivals. Defensive end DeMarcus Walker and running back Dalvin Cook were named consensus All-Americans.[4]

The season was documented on Showtime's A Season with Florida State Football.[5]
