Florida State finally got a win on the road to help get themselves back to their winning ways. Now they host Clemson, who has won back-to-back games, but that was against some of the lesser competition in the ACC. Clemson isn’t a team that will put up a big number offensively, which won’t work against FSU. The Seminoles are still very strong at home and should be able to run right past the Tigers.
