Duke vs. Florida State 2012: Game time, TV schedule, odds and more

Melina Vastola-US PRESSWIRE

E.J. Manuel will look to air it out against the up-and-coming Duke Blue Devils on Saturday.

The Florida State Seminoles and Duke Blue Devils will clash in a match-up of ACC rivals on Saturday afternoon in Doak Campbell Stadium.

Florida State (7-1, 4-1) has been terrific all season, save for one slip-up against the North Carolina State Wolfpack in which they blew a late fourth quarter lead. Quarterback E.J. Manuel is one of the best players in the nation and on the short list of Heisman hopefuls, throwing for 2,033 yards and 14 touchdowns on the campaign.

Perhaps just as impressive, Jimbo Fisher's defense looks like a top unit. This year, the group ranks fifth in the country allowing only 12.6 points per game.

In the most recent meeting between these two teams back on Oct. 15, 2011, the Seminoles dismantled the Blue Devils 41-16 at Wallace Wade Stadium.

On the other side, Duke (6-2, 3-1) is enjoying its best season in quite a while. The Blue Devils are leading the Coastal division within the ACC, holding a half-game lead over the Miami Hurricanes.

In their last game, Duke barely squeaked by the North Carolina Tar Heels 33-30 at home.

Duke also has already clinched bowl eligibility for the first time since 1994 under fifth-year head coach David Cutcliffe.
