For the seconds after Clemson's Chandler Catanzaro banged home a 50-yard field goal, the Tigers and their fans allowed themselves to believe they were in control of a game that had them leading a powerhouse Florida State team by 10 points.
Throughout most of the first three quarters of Saturday's top ten matchup, the Clemson offense was rolling. The well-oiled machine was putting up points so consistently that it was easy to brush off the fact that their defense was basically nonexistent.
It seemed like as soon as Catanzaro finished celebrating that kick, Florida State was down at Clemson's side of the field. Three Florida State possessions and three Florida State touchdowns later, the game had a markedly different feel to it.
Clemson never really had the game "in the bag" so to speak, but had they done things differently, they would have been in a position to put Florida State away. There were at least five things that went wrong for the Tigers during this game that will hopefully be fixed before they travel to Boston College for next week's tilt.
