The early lines out of Las Vegas Monday list 21st ranked Clemson as a three point underdog to 11th ranked Florida State this weekend. The Tigers are coming off a win over defending national champion Auburn Saturday. The Seminoles lost at home to top ranked Oklahoma in a competitive game.
The key injury to following in the Clemson-F.S.U. game is the injury to Noles quarterback E.J. Manuel’s shoulder. He left in the third quarter of Saturday night’s loss to the Sooners and his status is uncertain for this weekend’s game.
Clemson (3-0) and Florida State (2-1) will kick off at 3:30 Saturday in Death Valley. The game will be televised by ESPN.
EARLY PICK: Florida State wins straight up over Clemson.
