A monumental showdown is set in the Atlantic Coast Conference next weekend (Saturday, 8:00 pm Eastern ABC), when the Clemson Tigers host the Florida State Seminoles in a top five clash carrying with it national title implications. Without question, this game is a matchup that college football fans and outside observers should be sure to tune in to. It features two explosive offenses possessing the ability to light up the scoreboard orchestrated by quarterbacks who have played their way well into the Heisman Trophy conversation. Clemson is led by senior signal-caller Tajh Boyd, who operates the Tigers up-tempo attack at peak efficiency and who vaulted himself up to the forefront of the Heisman race with his impressive performance in the Tigers’ season-opening triumph over the Georgia Bulldogs. Boyd’s counterpart residing in Tallahassee is redshirt freshman Jameis Winston, a bona-fide prodigy who has amazed all his outside viewers across the country with his astounding talent and composure in the pocket. With the two hooking up this weekend, the showdown promises to treat fans and observers to a highly entertaining battle of juggernaut offenses. The fast approaching collision between the Tigers and Seminoles could potentially turn out to be the best game up to this point in the young college football season. Much is riding on the line when these two powers highlighted by phenomenal field generals square off in Death Valley Memorial Stadium. At stake undoubtedly is the opportunity for the victor to claim superiority within the conference. Additionally the winner of this game will have also cleared possibly the most daunting impediment standing in the way of an undefeated regular season the rest of the way; so the winner inches that much closer to a potential trip to Pasadena for a berth in the BCS title game. The page has been turned to game week for the greatly anticipated meeting of heavyweights Clemson and FSU this weekend. The looming matchup promises to significantly impact championship races both nationally and within the conference. Goals and aspirations run extremely high on both opposing sides, and this game should carry with it lofty both individual and team implications. All the inevitable hype and anticipation sure to be shown to this matchup is extremely justifiable, as it promises to be one of the best of the year. 1 total views, 1 views today
