The Clemson Tigers went into Saturday’s showdown with FSU the third ranked team in all the land, with legitimate conference, and even national championship aspirations. They left Death Valley Saturday night demoralized following their 51-14 dismantling at the hands of the Seminoles in front of a national audience curious as to who the top dog in the ACC was.
The Tiger offense turned the football over a season high total of 4 times. Tight end Stanton Seckinger fumbled on the first play from scrimmage that FSU quickly capitalized on, and Tiger quarterback Tajh Boyd threw for 2 interceptions and also had a fumble returned for a touchdown in the game.
In a battle built up as maybe the biggest game in ACC history, led by two Heisman trophy contending quarterbacks, Boyd finished 17-37 for 156 yards and the turnovers.
Earlier today Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris addressed the Florida State game, and talked about how he plans on getting the Tiger offense back on track in time for Maryland.
