The best Top 25 matchup in college football this week features a pair of top 10 teams in Tallahassee on Saturday night. The No. 4 Florida State Seminoles will be out for revenge when they take on the No. 10 Clemson Tigers at home.

FSU has only given up 3 points all year. Sammy Watkins is looking to change that.
