Florida State vs. Clemson: Game Preview With TV Schedule





The Clemson Tigers are creeping up on the top spot in the nation. The veteran crew of players as well as Dabo Swinney have to get past two more tough tests and an undefeated season will be theirs. However, this week will be the Tigers’ toughest test of the season thus far and an ACC title will be on the line.

On the other side of the field, the Florida State Seminoles will be traveling to Clemson to take on those talented Tigers in what looks to be the biggest game of the season in the ACC. It will likely live up to the hype as the Tigers and Seminoles are so evenly-matched — this game will likely go down to the wire.

Clemson and Florida State can both say they have one of the best quarterbacks in the nation leading their respective team. The Tigers’ quarterback has a bit of an advantage, however. Tajh Boyd has the experience needed to win big games like this and he has some weapons to assist him in leading the Tigers to a 7-0 record with a win this week. Boyd is a Heisman contender and that’s evidenced by his 1,783 passing yards and 15 touchdowns through the air along with his 187 rush yards and five scores on the ground. Boyd gets to pass to one of the best receivers in the nation: Sammy Watkins. The junior wide out has 36 catches for 582 yards and four touchdowns on the year. The only weakness in this offense is the run game.

Florida State also has one of the top quarterbacks in the nation in Jameis Winston. However, like I said earlier, Winston is a redshirt freshman and doesn’t have the experience that Boyd does in order to win a big game like this on the road. Winston makes up for that lack of experience with a ridiculous amount of talent. He has 1,441 yards and 17 touchdowns while completing over 73 percent of his passes. Wide outs Kenny Shaw and Rashad Greene have combined for 873 yards and eight touchdowns on 46 catches this season for the 18th best passing attack in the country.

Defensively, Florida State has one of the better units in the conference. The Seminoles rank third in the nation in their ability to keep teams out of the endzone, allowing just 12 points per game to go along with just 276.8 yards per game. Clemson allows just 16.2 points per game to go along with 344.8 yards per game.

Florida State will travel to Clemson to take on the Tigers at 8 p.m. EST on Saturday, Oct. 19. The game will be broadcasted on ABC.

PREDICTION: Florida State 34, Clemson 31
