ESPN GameDay picks for Clemson-FSU


by - Assoc. Editor -

The ACC showdown between No. 2 Clemson and Florida State at Doak Campbell Stadium will start at noon on Saturday.

The Tigers (7-0) are currently a 17-point favorite with 49.5 over/under against the Seminoles (4-3) and ESPN's Football Power Index has Clemson as a 91.5% road favorite.

Florida State has lost five straight games against ranked opponents.

ESPN’s College GameDay panel weighed in with their predictions live in Jacksonville, Florida:

Desmond Howard picked Clemson: Clemson defense is going to get after the Seminoles defense. I got Clemson in a real dogfight. Clemson has too much offense.

Celebrity guest picker Evander Holyfield picked Clemson.

Kirk Herbstreit picked Clemson: I see Lawrence with big plays in the air. Florida State hangs around but give me Clemson.

Lee Corso picked Clemson: The Noles cover.

David Pollack picked Clemson: This (Trevor Lawrence) is why Clemson is the second best team in the country.

The Clemson flags were front and center during the show:

Here is an ESPN breakdown of Trevor Lawrence's play last week:
