Head-to-Head: Florida State vs Clemson
Florida State and Clemson have faced off several times in recent memory, but the Tigers have left victorious after each of the last seven times. They’ve covered the spread in each of the last five. The last time the Seminoles beat the Tigers was in 2014 – when Sean McGuire filled in for Jameis Winston at quarterback to help Florida State to a 23-17 win.
Unless the lines drastically change, this will be the first meeting between these teams since that 2014 game where the Seminoles enter as the favorite to win. Florida State is 3-0 this season after closing the 2022 season with six consecutive wins, and they currently occupy a high position in both the AP Top 25 (3) and Coaches Poll (4).
Clemson’s public perception is far more tenuous, with a 7-28 loss to Duke in Week 1 still hanging on their stock like an anchor. After closing 2022 with a 3-3 record in six games they were favored to win, the Tigers aren’t nearly as highly regarded as they were during their playoff runs only a couple of seasons ago. A win on Saturday could quickly restore their image, but a loss will probably drop the Tigers from the playoff conversation for another year.

Florida State vs Clemson Predictions
While a Clemson win wouldn’t be overly shocking, Florida State has made a compelling case so far that this is their season to run the ACC. Despite that, Clemson boasts an incredibly impressive home record – prior to a 30-31 loss to South Carolina last season, the Tigers’ last home loss was a 42-43 loss to Pittsburgh in 2016. Traveling to Clemson and leaving with a win would be an incredibly emphatic statement by the Seminoles that they’re a championship contender this season.
Many fans will look at the Tigers’ home record, the potential payout of taking them given the status of the odds, and make their bet. History can be instructive, but it’s important for bettors to not be a prisoner of it. FSU is favored to win, despite their opponent and location, for a reason.
Prediction: Florida State -2.5
