Clemson on ESPN's Upset Watch against FSU

The giant bullseye on Clemson's back has now gotten larger with the #1 national ranking released on Tuesday night.

ESPN's Andrea Adelson has the #1 Tigers on upset alert against the #16 Seminoles in Death Valley this weekend.

"Does putting Clemson on this list mean the Tigers are going to lose? No. It means they are going to face their toughest remaining test in the regular season, against a team that has had their number the past three seasons," Adelson said. "Since 2012, Clemson is 0-3 against Florida State and 25-1 against the rest of the ACC. Just because the Seminoles have struggled in a few games does not make this any less of a challenge. Especially with a player named Dalvin Cook on their sideline. Clemson went into the 2013 meeting the higher-ranked team and lost. By all accounts, the Tigers are a more mature team than they were back then. But this game is the ultimate measuring stick. If Clemson wins as expected, the Tigers will clinch a spot in the ACC title game and become an overwhelming favorite to make the College Football Playoff. If Clemson loses, it will be another season filled with "what ifs."

The home team has won 11 of the last 13 games in the series.
