Florida State-Clemson Line

The Florida State-Clemson line was coming in at Tigers -2.5 after opening as a -3 underdog.  Clemson is ranked number 21, Florida State is ranked number 11.  It is Clemson that comes into this game undefeated.

Florida State's rally from a 10-point halftime deficit fell short last week in a 23-13 home defeat to top-ranked Oklahoma.

The line on this game has changed drastically following the injury of Seminoles quarterback EJ Manuel.

On Monday, coach Jimbo Fisher said an MRI revealed no structural damage.
"We'll see how it goes," Fisher said. "It's a concern. You've got to make sure it doesn't affect (his) throwing motion."
