Picks: Seminoles will top Tigers
Predicting Week 8's biggest games, including FSU-Clemson and UCLA-Stanford
Each week during the 2013 college football season, I will offer up my picks and scores for the biggest games, in addition to a handful of other key matchups.
Week 7 is in the books and my picks went 7-2, giving me an overall record of 50-13.
After a week that featured three of the biggest upsets this season -- with Stanford, Georgia and Oklahoma losing -- this week has one of the top games of the year in addition to several other high-stakes matchups.
No. 5 Florida State Seminoles at No. 3 Clemson Tigers
Saturday at 8 p.m. ET, ABC
The game of the week and possibly the entire month of October takes place Saturday as the winner here stakes a claim for not only an ACC title but also a possible berth in the BCS title game.
The home team has won six straight in this series and the Tigers have dominated the Seminoles in Death Valley, winning the past five matchups by an average of 10 points per game. However, last year Florida State came out on top 49-37 as the Noles had a huge 667-426 yard edge.
