|Saturday, October 27, 2018, 11:55 AM- -|
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:
Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence is doing a great job vs the blitz. NC State blitzed him 22 times; his QBR was nearly perfect on those plays, 98 out of 100. Pretty good for a true freshman!
