Florida State-Clemson game becoming a rivalry


Miami Herald Writer

On Saturday when No. 5 Florida State and No. 3 Clemson square off it will be more than just a big game for the Atlantic Coast Conference, it will be a rivalry game.

“I think it’s become a rivalry, because it’s a very important Atlantic Division contest, I mean, there’s no doubt. It is a rivalry because of the importance and how good both teams are,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. “Like I say, you have a rivalry, it’s usually when both teams are very competitive and both teams have success and it will decide something, and this has definitely become that in my opinion.”

Meanwhile, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney was exceptionally complimentary of FSU during the ACC’s weekly coaches teleconference.

“These guys, it’s a great football team, and as I said in my press conference here, very well could be the best team in the country, who knows,” Swinney said. “Very talented offense, defense, kicker is having a great year and quarterback is playing at an incredible level.”
