We hardly ever discussed ACC football on this blog.
That’s about to change.
We thought Clemson was the class of the ACC, and headed towards a national title opportunity. Florida State on the other hand was the team that always fell short somehow. Clemson, frankly was expected to at least compete in this game.
Florida State trounced Clemson, 51-14 to vault to the head of the ACC and jump up into membership of legitimate national title contenders. Winston was amazing, throwing for 444 yards and 3 touchdowns in the rout. It’s an impressive road win for Florida State, considering the Tigers were ranked third in the nation coming into the game. Meanwhile, Winston increased his chances of getting strong Heisman consideration.
A lot of people suggest Ohio State could jump up into the national championship conversation by going undefeated. I suspect Ohio State is behind the undefeated teams and some one-loss squads in actual chances of going to the national championship game. They are going to need some help, which based on previous performance, most of college football fans don’t want them to get.
