CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - After No. 3 Clemson's great escape against Boston College, the Tigers can finally focus on No. 5 Florida State and the Atlantic Coast Conference's first top-five showdown in eight years.
While the Seminoles (5-0, 3-0) had the week off, Clemson needed two fourth-quarter scores to rally past Boston College and set up its second high-profile game in the season's first two months.
The Tigers (6-0, 4-0) started the year with a 38-35 win over then fifth-ranked Georgia in front of a packed Death Valley.
Next Saturday is the ACC's highest-ranked game since 2005 when fifth-ranked Miami topped No. 3 Virginia Tech, 27-7.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said the Tigers will be ready.
