Clemson Vs. Florida State: Tomahawk Nation Predicts Seminoles Victory

Tomahawk Nation posted a thorough preview for Saturday night's game of the week between the Florida St. Seminoles and the Clemson Tigers. In that preview, the writer broke down the matchups on both sides. According to the writer, the matchup between the Seminoles offense and the Tigers defense may be the big difference in this game, because the Tigers are still in transition with their defense:

Clemson is keeping the 4-3 front they used with Steele but changing the secondary to show more cover-3 than the cover-1 or cover-4 they ran under Steele. Venables expects his linebackers to attack down hill which is unlike Steele's more read and react based defense.

Some of the Clemson players have had difficulties adjusting to the new individual roles. This could give the Seminoles the advantage they need to win their biggest test of the season right now. In the end, Tomahawk Nation predicts that the Seminoles will win Saturday's game by two touchdowns.

In its simplest form the game looks like this. Clemson's offense and Florida State's defense are both excellent, the special teams seem pretty close, and FSU's offense looks to be a good bit better than Clemson's defense.

Score Prediction: FSU 38 Clemson 23
