Florida State and Michigan will meet Friday night in the Orange Bowl. Some Michigan fans will argue that the Wolverines deserve to be playing the following night in the College Football Playoff.
And it sounds like at least one Seminoles player agrees.
Florida State cornerback Marquez White told reporters Tuesday that he thought Michigan got cheated out of a call in its double-overtime loss at Ohio State last month.

In arguably the most controversial call of the season, Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett was ruled to have enough yardage for a first down on a clunky 4th-and-1 run in the second overtime.
If Barrett was short, the game was over. Instead, the Buckeyes won the game on the very next play.
“The Spot” will be debated long after the 2016 season concludes, but it seems like there will be people on both sidelines of the Orange Bowl who think Barrett was short.
