Florida State 30, Clemson 35 Final
It is an ACC showdown between a pair of Top 25 teams.
The winner will take a huge step forward in the race to represent the Atlantic Division in the ACC title game.
The two teams enter this weekend’s pivotal matchup with emotions ranging on opposite ends of the spectrum.
Florida State is coming off a disappointing 23-13 loss to top-ranked Oklahoma, where they went toe-to-toe with the nation’s best team, but left with dashed national title dreams and a host of injuries to key contributors.
Meanwhile, Clemson ended the nation’s longest winning streak with a 38-24 victory over defending national champion Auburn.
The Tigers are looking to score consecutive wins over ranked opponents for the first time since 2005.
Will Florida State’s EJ Manuel be under center for the Seminoles after being knocked out of the Oklahoma game with a shoulder injury, or will backup Clint Trickett make the first start of his career in Death Valley?
Will Clemson’s new offense finally meet its match against a rugged ‘Noles defense that gave the Sooners' fits?
We will find out as this matchup gets underway tomorrow afternoon.
