ESPN's FPI predicts outcome of major Florida State vs. Clemson matchup
ESPN’s FPI is projecting the outcome of every game on the Week 4 college football slate. In the ACC, that includes the major matchup between Florida State and Clemson in a game that could produce implications for the league title.
Heading into the matchup, Mike Norvell’s squad is expected to be the favorite after a 3-0 start. The FPI is currently giving the Seminoles a 57.3% chance of taking home the win while on the road against Clemson.
Entering the season, a number of analysts expected FSU and Clemson to meet twice in the season. The first matchup, of course, coming in Week 4 and the second expected matchup being the ACC Championship Game.
To start the season, the Seminoles have looked every bit of an ACC and national title contender with a 3-0 record and a dominant Week 1 win over LSU. While a road trip to Boston College looked shaky in Week 3, all indications point to an FSU team looking ahead to Clemson.
As for Dabo Swinney and the Tigers, things have not gone smoothly with a blowout loss to Duke in the season opener. Wins over Charleston Southern and FAU have righted the ship, but those games are a far cry from a top-5 opponent.
Saturday’s game is set for a 12 p.m. ET kickoff on ABC.
