We're a little over an hour from the first top-five match up of the college football season. The third-ranked Clemson Tigers and fifth-ranked Florida State Seminoles are set to square off in a game that will have major ramifications for both the Atlantic Coast Conference and the national championship race.
Clemson has the homefield advtantage and recent history on their side -- the Seminoles are 0-for-their-last-five in trips to Death Valley -- but Florida State claims none of that matters.
“Of course we don’t think about that because that’s not our team that hasn’t won in the last [five trips up to Clemson]," said Jameis Winston. "This is a new team. I didn’t even know that statistic. We don’t look at predictions, like I said we’re just doing the same gameplan trying to go out there and win.”
Come midnight the ACC should have its front-runner and the rest of the nation should have a better idea whether or not the conference is for real.
Here's your game capsule:
