Saturday night update:

It’s official: FSU vs. Clemson will kickoff at 3:30 pm.


Florida State entered its first bye week of the season after winning two consecutive ACC games for the first time since 2016. The bye week couldn’t come at a better time for the Seminoles as Florida State will have two weeks to prepare and get healthy before heading into hostile Death Valley. After surviving an upset scare against UNC, 21-20 the No. 2 Clemson Tigers (5-0, 3-0 ACC) will also reap the benefit of having two weeks to prepare to face Florida State.

On Monday morning, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced the Tigers will host Florida State at either 3:30 p.m. or 7:30 p.m. on Oct 12th. ESPN has exercised a six-day hold and the final time will be determined after the October 5th games, but it has been determined that the contest will be televised on ABC.

As soon as the final game time is announced we will update this article, so be sure to check back for updates.
