#5 Florida State vs. #3 Clemson

Clemson vs Florida StateThe match up Saturday is #5 Florida State traveling to Death Valley to take on #3 Clemson in a match up of top 5 teams. The winner of this game will probably have a good chance to get the BCS National Championship. In last years match up E.J. Manuel helped Florida State top Clemson 49-37. This year Clemson would like to get revenge and keep their national championship hopes alive.

Clemson is lead by senior quarterback Tajh Boyd. Boyd has thrown for 1783 yards with 5 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. He has also rushed for 187 yards on 66 carries and 5 touchdowns. He also helped Clemson knock off #5 Georgia in the first game of the year and he would like to do the same here to Florida State. The Tigers leading rusher is Roderick McDowell. McDowell has ran for 385 yards on 78 carries and is yet to score a touchdown. Boyd’s main receiving target is Sammy Watkins. Watkins has caught 36 passes for 582 yards and 4 touchdowns.

On the other side Florida State is lead by red shirt freshman Jameis Winston. Winston has completed 90 of 123 passes for 1441 yards with 17 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Florida States leading rushers are Devonta Freeman who has rushed for 385 yards and 3 touchdowns off of 54 carries. Their other main running back is Carlos Williams. Williams has rushed for 244 yards on 28 carries with 6 touchdowns.Winston’s main receiving target is Kenny Shaw and Rashad Greene. Each one has caught 23 passes while Shaw has 466 yards and 3 touchdowns, Greene has 407 yards and 5 touchdowns.

 

Keys To The Game

For Florida State:
1. Can they keep playing like they did in their last game? They put up 63 points on then ranked #25 Maryland. Florida State’s defense also did not allow any points.
2. Can they slow down Sammy Watkins? Watkins has caught 36 passes for 582 yards and 4 touchdowns. So can the Seminoles defense slow him down?
3. Can Winston play like he did last game? He threw for 393 yards and 5 touchdowns against Maryland.

For Clemson:
1. Can the Tigers D slow down the freshman Heisman hopeful Winston?
2. Can Tajh Boyd keep finding receiver down field? Boyd has thrown touchdown passes of 40,60,75 and 95 yards.
3. Will this be the game Roderick McDowell finally scores a touchdown?

 

My Prediction

Behind their home fans Clemson jumps out to an early 10-0 lead. But Jameis Winston finds Kenny Shaw on a 45 yard touchdown strike to close the gap 10-7. Tajh Boyd comes right back down and throws a bullet to Sammy Watkins for a 25 yard touchdown to increase their lead back to ten 17-7. Right before the 1st half ends Florida State gets a field goal to make the score 17-10 halftime. In the 2nd half both defenses tighten up as each team allows a touchdown to make the score 24-17 at the end of the 3rd. In the 4th quarter Florida State closes the gap by getting a field goal to make the score 24-20. Both teams get a touchdown after that to bring the score 31-27. With 1:45 left in the game Florida State gets the ball back and has a chance to take the lead. They drive down the field and on 4th down at the 30 yard line with 20 seconds left in the game, Jameis Winston’s pass gets swatted down to secure the victory for Clemson.

Final Score

Clemson: 31
Florida State: 27
