USA Today - No. 5 Florida State dominates No. 4 Clemson

Dan Wolken, USA TODAY Sports

"They had stacked elite recruiting classes on top of one another, re-established their identity as a dominant defense and even won an Atlantic Coast Conference title last season. And still, Florida State had been the forgotten program in the national title chase the first half of this year."

Neil White, The State

"Fumbles, interceptions, missed tackles, blown assignments, even an ejection...The comedy of errors wasn’t so funny for third-ranked Clemson in a blowout 51-14 loss to No. 5 Florida State on Saturday night.
