In the win over the Wolfpack, Seminoles QB Alex Hornibrook posted 316 yards and three touchdowns, and Cam Akers added 83 yards and a score. Ontaria Wilson was the top receiver for FSU there with 91 yards and a TD from four grabs. 

Over on the Clemson side, they’re rolling along at 5-0 thus far. The Tigers have taken out Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Syracuse, Charlotte and North Carolina so far. 

In the 21-20 victory over UNC, Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence posted 206 yards and a TD, while Travis Etienne had 67 yards and a score rushing. Tee Higgins had a monster receiving game with 129 yards and a TD off six catches there. 

The Seminoles are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four conference games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 after an ATS win. Florida State is 5-11-3 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 1-4-1 ATS in their last six road games. 

Meanwhile, the Tigers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four in October and 4-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss. Clemson is 4-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 6-2 ATS in their last eight overall. 

The Seminoles seem to have settled in a little bit with their last two wins, dispatching Louisville 35-24 and NC State 31-13. It’s a solid turnaround following just the one OT win in their first three games. 

Still, statistically Clemson is obviously going to look incredibly lopsided here, and even with a rightfully lopsided line I don’t think the Tigers will have too much trouble dispatching a lesser team here—even after a bad game. I’m still going Clemson.
