CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson coach Dabo Swinney says his ninth-ranked Tigers are more even with No. 3 Florida State than the lopsided score in Saturday's meeting indicates. Swinney said Tuesday after watching film of the 51-14 trouncing, he believes if the teams played 10 times, "We'd probably win five, they'd probably win five." Swinney says he isn't taking away from the Seminoles' dominating performance. Florida State put up a record number of points for opponents at Death Valley. And while Swinney says there were a couple of areas the Seminoles "were a bit ahead" of his Tigers, he believes Florida State just caught Clemson on a bad night. Clemson and Florida State aren't scheduled to play again until next season. The Tigers (6-1, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) play at Maryland (5-2, 1-2) Saturday.
