If you had asked me who would win this game at the beginning of the season, I would have said Clemson, without a doubt.
If you had asked me after Week 2, I would have said Clemson, with a little hesitation.
If you had asked me after Week 4, I would have said Clemson, a little less cautiously.
Now, after six weeks, after Boston College gave FSU and Clemson both scares and seeing how each team struggled with them, after seeing the flaws in both teams and also the strengths, I have to go with Florida State.
This is not a biased decision, it simply is one based on the facts. FSU ranks 3rd overall in the NCAA for points per game (53.6) and points allowed (12), while Clemson ranks 18th (40.8) and 10th (16.2). In just about every positional matchup, it seems the 'Noles have the edge, something not many people saw coming.
It's going to be a hard fought game from both teams, but somebody's national title hopes are going to die on Saturday night, and it seems that it'll be Clemson's for the second year in the row.
Final Score: FSU 44, Clemson 31
