Week 9 of the college football season sees the Florida State Seminoles taking on the Clemson Tigers.
The Seminoles are coming off of a win and the Tigers are coming off of a loss.
I first saw the Tigers favored by 10.5 points and that number is now at 9.5. I have seen the total stay right around 47.5.
Florida State Seminoles
I have said this before. The only thing that Florida state has going for them is name recognition. Simply put, they are not a very good football team.
The Seminoles won their cupcake game last week against UMASS by a score of 59-3. They did exactly what they had to do against a team that is totally inept and lacks talent.
In the victory last week, Jordan Travis was 5/10 for 123 yards. Chubba Purdy was 5/5 for 98 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Last Saturday was all about the running game. Four running backs had more than 50 yards on the ground. We will see how well they run the ball against a good defense in Clemson.
The defense has not been great for them this year. It is hard to judge their performance when they do not play a real school. Given how bad the offense has been for Clemson, this unit could have a good day on Saturday.
Clemson is not the team that we have been used to seeing the last multiple years. They are a very flawed team at the moment. If they cannot beat Florida State, they are even worse than I thought.
The Tigers lost to the Pitt Panthers last Saturday by a score of 27-17. In past years, Clemson would have wiped the floor with Pitt. How times have changed.
DJ Uiagalelei continues to be ineffective. Last week, he was 12/25 for 128 yards and 2 interceptions. He got benched in the game.
Because the quarterback play has been so dreadful, this team has had to really rely on the running game. Will Shipley had 10 carries for 52 yards against Pitt. I look for him to have a good day against an FSU defense that is not that great.
For as bad as the offense has been for this team, the defense has not been the issue. This unit is keeping their team in games. It is just hard when you get no production from the offense. It puts an awful lot of pressure on the defense.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
In past years, this would be a much sexier matchup. Given how bad these teams have played this year, I am not sure how good of a game it will be.
I will go with the Seminoles getting 9.5 points here.
4* Free Week 9 NCAA Betting Pick:
Even with how poorly the Tigers have played this year, they still are the better team here and I do think they will win.
With that said, I am not sold on them covering this number of 9.5. Clemson, yes the Clemson Tigers, are 0-7 against the spread this year. I do not see that trend changing in this one.
The main reason I like Florida State to keep this thing close is that I just cannot envision the Tigers getting a huge lead and not looking back. Clemson is not the type of team to blow someone out right now.
Give me Florida State as a dog on the road.
