Florida State (5-0) at Clemson (6-0) 8:00 PM ET
Watch: ABC, National Broadcast
The Spread: Florida State is a 3 point favorite.
The Weather: Mostly clear, around 62 at kickoff. Light winds. Should be a great fall night for football.
The 'Noles have met every challenge this year with an avalanche of offense. From an opening game in Pittsburgh, down early to Boston College, a ranked Maryland team, each challenge has been brushed aside.
Freshman phenom Jameis Winston has led the 'Noles' offensive onslaught. However, Death Valley is perhaps the most difficult challenge of the season. Winston will need another excellent performance against a much improved Clemson defense to leave with a win.
The defense showed what is capable of against Maryland. Against a spread team, new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt earned his first spiked baseball. Clemson has a lot more talent than Maryland including senior QB Tajh Boyd and WR Sammy Watkins. The 'Nole defense doesn't have to shut down the Clemson offense, just limit it.

Plenty of other football to watch to keep your brain occupied until the game starts.* At noon, catch a Georgia team that is reeling from a ridiculous amount of injuries. They are only a 7 point favorite over Vanderbilt. In a battle of backup QBs, the Gators are leaving their comfort zone (basically anything north of Knoxville) to play new conference foe Missouri. Missouri's starting QB went down for the year in the Tigers upset win over Georgia last week.
We've got two ranked match-ups in the afternoon slot. Stanford, upset last week by Utah, looks to recover against undefeated UCLA. Auburn is improved from last year, but enough to upset Texas A&M and Manziel? The Tigers might make it interesting, for a little while.
