What Clemson football needs to show against Florida State

clemson football

Clemson football held the No. 1 spot in the AP Top 25 poll, until it lost to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. At 7-1, Dabo Swinney’s team still holds the No. 4 rank in the nation. Another shaky performance could begin shifting the Tigers out of range for the College Football Playoff. Clemson needs a big game this weekend against the struggling Florida State Seminoles. Luckily for the Tigers, Trevor Lawrence is returning from his battle with COVID-19. The future No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft traveled with the team to South Bend two weeks ago, but the conference didn’t clear him in time to play. Lawrence is an emotional leader for the Tigers, and he should provide them

Pitt football picks up big win at Florida State

pitt football

Pitt football finally ended its four-game skid last Saturday, picking up a convincing 41-17 win over the Florida State Seminoles. This was the Panthers' first double-digit victory since their week one pummeling of Austin Peay and looked to have things back on track on both sides of the ball. The offense, which was struggling immensely without senior quarterback Kenny Pickett, was able to get the ball moving both through the air and on the ground. Pickett looked as good as ever throwing the ball, completing 21 of 27 passes for 210 yards. While he looked great throwing the ball, he seemed less comfortable running with the ball, carrying it only three times. While he didn’t take off with the ball as

Notre Dame football defeats yet another No. 1 team from the south

Notre Dame football

Undoubtedly, Notre Dame football played a game to remember on Saturday night. Defeating No. 1 Clemson 47-40 in double overtime, the Irish shocked the nation. The euphoric feeling was surely felt throughout Notre Dame's campus, as well as in Irish fans globally. A dream became a reality for Notre Dame football, as Clemson had been favored to win this game for quite some time and had not lost an ACC matchup since 2017. Ironically enough, this is not the first time the Irish have defeated a No. 1 team from the south. Notre Dame is now 3-0, as before it defeated Miami in 1988 and Florida State in 1993. Not only that, but these three victories occurred in South Bend and

Notre Dame football: Final thoughts on a win over Florida State

Notre Dame football

After almost three weeks with no action, Notre Dame football took the field once again in South Bend on Saturday. The visiting team was the Florida State Seminoles, a competitor that was not new to the Irish. There were not many concerns whether this would be a close game, as Notre Dame had quite the advantage being ranked a top five team. The concern was how Notre Dame would handle being under the lights after a long break due to COVID-19 infections. Presumed to have a lot of potential this year, the Irish have only had two games before FSU to show their skills. Although both were wins, there were a lot of areas on the field that needed work. Regarding

Is Florida State considered a rival to Notre Dame football?

Notre Dame football

Although Florida State might not have the talent to beat Notre Dame football this year, it seems as if there is always a feeling of tension when these two teams meet. Some say they are rivals, some claim the competition is not comparable. Regardless of your view, there is no doubt there have been memorable games between these two football teams. I thought it would be intriguing to take a trip down memory lane and revisit the two games some would say are the most historical matchups between Florida State and Notre Dame. "Game of the Century" Not only was this the first time ESPN's College GameDay took the road, but this game was undoubtedly the biggest meet up these two teams

What we know about Miami football amid bye week

Miami football is 3-0 and ranked No. 8 in the latest college football AP poll. As the Hurricanes take a week of R&R, I'd like to think it'll be more recovery and regrouping, rather than rest and relaxation. Coming off its bye week, Miami is set to kick off against the ACC and college football's top-ranked team - the Clemson Tigers on Saturday, Oct. 10. This will be the Hurricanes' third straight primetime appearance. Nonetheless, lets not get caught up in the hype. What do we know about this football team so far? The search is over This offense has tallied up 130 points in its past three games. There is a lot of work still needed before we can start questioning
