ESPN's Brian Griese writes that the winner of the Clemson-FSU game could win the BCS title game. Also, he thinks that the ACC is closing the gap on the SEC's run of national championships.

I have called six games as an analyst for ESPN this season involving SEC or ACC teams and have seen the following teams up close and personal: Texas A&M, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Missouri from the SEC, and FSU, Miami, Maryland, Georgia Tech and North Carolina from the ACC. (I have not yet seen Alabama, LSU or Clemson in person.)

My impression after the first half of the season is that the distance between the SEC's elite teams and the ACC's elite teams is diminishing. There's no question in my mind that Clemson and FSU can compete with the best teams in the SEC, and the winner of Saturday night's Seminoles-Tigers matchup could not only make it to the BCS title game but win it once it gets there.
