Dabo Swinney and the No. 2 ranked Clemson Tigers (7-0) took down ACC rival NC State in the “Textile Bowl” last week, and look to continue churning through their regular season slate when they travel to take on the Florida State Seminoles (4-3) in Tallahassee on Saturday afternoon.

The Tigers and Wolfpack entered last week’s game undefeated, but it was the Tigers’ high-powered offense led by true freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence that ultimately overwhelmed the Wolfpack. Lawrence — in his best game of the season — completed 26 of 39 passes for 308 yards and a touchdown. Sophomore running back Travis Etienne added three touchdowns on the ground.
Willie Taggart’s head coaching tenure at Florida State got off to a rocky start. Since a 1-2 start, the Seminoles have settled and won three of their past four games, only falling to Miami in a one-point loss two weeks ago, due to the improved play of Deandre Francois.
Francois tossed three interceptions in the season opener against Virginia Tech, but since has totaled three interceptions in the Seminoles’ last six games. Francois has thrown for 300-plus yards and completed 60% of his passes in all but one Florida State win; against Louisville, francois completed 59.3% of his passes for 294 yards, yet threw for four touchdowns.
Swinney knows the Seminoles are dangerous now that they shook off the cobwebs which plagued them at the start of the season.
“They’re really starting to hit their stride. This is a dangerous football team that is figuring out their identity and buying into what Willie is trying to get them to do. But we’re excited about it. It’s always a great place to go play a ballgame.”
Florida State has struggled in conference, with all three losses to ACC teams; the Seminoles are 2-3 in conference overall. Clemson has won the past four three meetings in the series.
