No. 10 Clemson will visit Tallahassee, Florida to face No. 4 Florida State on Saturday for the game of the week -- at least by ESPN Gameday's standards -- and a spot in the ACC title game and possibly the BCS Championship could hang in the balance. Both squads are 3-0 after facing a collection of FCS cupcakes and weak FBS talent (Auburn, Wake Forest).

The first order of business for FSU will be to find a way to answer Sammy Watkins, who marked a stunning freshman campaign last year with seven catches, two big touchdowns and 141 total yards in a 35-30 Tigers win in Death Valley. Clemson would go on to win the division and conference en route to a BCS bowl berth. A year prior, FSU won on a game-winning field goal from Dustin Hopkins.
