The Clemson Tigers will host ACC rival Florida State this Saturday.
Clemson is coming off a 56-41 victory over NC State improving their record to 8-0. Clemson was tested by NC State but overcame them late. Quarterback Deshaun Watson had a big game completing 23 out of his 30 passes for 383 yards and 5 touchdowns and no interceptions. Watson also added 14 carries for 54 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Running back Wayne Gallman recorded 31 carries for 172 yards and 1 touchdown. Wide Receiver Hunter Renfrow led the Tigers with 4 catches for 93 yards and 1 touchdown. Receiver Charone Peake also added 3 receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown. Clemson will face one of their toughest tests of the season this weekend against Florida State.
Florida State is coming off a big 45-21 win over the Syracuse Orange. This was a big win for the Seminoles playing with out Everett Golson or Dalvin Cook. Quarterback Sean Maguire completed 23 out of his 35 passes for 348 yards and 3 touchdowns with no interceptions. Running back Jacques Patrick carried the ball 24 times for 162 yards and 3 touchdowns. Wide Receiver Travis Rudolph led the Seminoles with 5 catches for 191 yards and 3 touchdowns. Receiver Jesus Wilson also added 6 receptions for 69 yards and no touchdowns. Florida State will need to be prepared for Clemson as it is a must win game for them.
Florida State is 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 games following a win. The Seminoles are 0-4 against the spread in their last 4 games following a win of more than 20 points. Clemson is 5-1 against the spread vs. a team with a winning record. The Tigers are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games in November.
It will be interesting to see which quarterback FSU decides to start this weekend. FSU will be fired up for this game but Clemson will be just as fired up. Clemson has been on a tear lately and will try to get one of their biggest wins of the season. I think the Clemson offense will end up being to much for Florida State in the end. Clemson was embarrased last time these two teams met in Clemson, so look for them to get revenge. Take Clemson to cover at home.
