Florida State is looking at taking control in the ACC, and to do that a win at Clemson is the way to do it. Clemson has to respond in this game or they will lose the second ACC game of the season and we are only in week 4.
Clemson did not secure any high-calibre receivers through the transfer portal over the last week or so.
Has Clemson decided to utilize the transfer portal? No. This has left head coach Dabo Swinney under heavy fire, and with good reason.
Did Clemson start to show its offensive brilliance against Charleston Southern and Florida Atlantic, producing big plays downfield? Sort of. However, Clemson remains dead last in the Atlantic Coast Conference when it comes to yards per completion.
Have the turnover issues that were exposed in its opening loss to Duke been entirely addressed by Clemson? Not exactly, as evidenced by three giveaways over the last two weeks.
Did Clemson manage to channel its NFL defensive talent into its backfield? Sort of, but not quite; both games had two sacks each.
Florida State’s offensive line remains effective at keeping defenses away from Jordan Travis on an ongoing basis despite issues at Boston College.
Yes, passing efficiency has improved over time while the running game remains strong enough to score enough touchdowns, and the defense has held up well on third downs.
There’s cause to worry about the Boston College game.
Florida State may have prepared for Boston College, but it did not appear that way as the Seminoles struggled to win on the road.
This Seminole team is outstanding. Are they being overpraised due to an impressive second half against LSU? Perhaps a little. But regardless, this Seminole squad remains competitive enough that its success cannot be ignored.
FSU should have lost to Boston College but was spared by 18 penalties, while Clemson has only committed ten flags over three games so far this season.
Clemson may not be producing as many explosive plays on either side of the ball as expected, but they have remained competitive throughout this season. They appear more relaxed now.
Overall, the defense has been outstanding over the first three games; there could be exceptions and caveats, but had Clemson not faltered inside the redzone, things could have gone in a much different direction.
Florida State is the better team, and they have more explosive weapons than Clemson. Florida State 31 Clemson 27.
