This time next week it’ll all be over. If the Seminoles win, then the path to the national title looks a lot brighter. There will be excitement surrounding the next game against NC State, but it’ll be nothing like this one. NC State week won’t be Clemson week.

The Tigers will play host to the college football world for the second time this season ahead of their matchup with Florida State.

ESPN College GameDay is coming back to Clemson, as the undefeated Tigers host a showdown with Florida State next Saturday. GameDay opened the 2013 season at Clemson for the Tigers’ win over Georgia.

GameDay hasn’t been to the same site twice in a season since 2007, when they went to both Oregon and LSU twice. It makes sense why they’re returning, as the matchup between the Tigers and the Seminoles will be between two teams with legitimate national title aspirations. The loser will have those aspirations go up in smoke, while the winner will have gotten past the biggest obstacle on their schedule.

This will be only the third time GameDay has gone to Clemson, and they’re 2-0 as hosts. However, they’ve lost each of the other five times they’ve appeared in College GameDay games. Florida State, meanwhile, is 11-14 all time in GameDay host site games.

TALLAHASSEE — As a wide-eyed freshman, Adrian McPherson stood inside Clemson’s Memorial Stadium, soaking in the spectacle around him.

It was the former Florida State quarterback’s first and only trip to Death Valley, but it was all he needed to grasp the intensity of the then budding rivalry.

“I thought Death Valley was the toughest place to play, because you’re sitting down in that hole and they get on top of you, so you can literally hear nothing,” said McPherson, whose FSU career was cut short by off-the-field problems.

FSU beat Clemson 41-27 in the 2001 contest, which McPherson described as a “dog fight.” It was the last time the Seminoles won at Memorial Stadium.

FSU-Clemson may not have the same allure as FSU-Miami or FSU-Florida, but the annual matchup between the ACC foes has developed into a quality rivalry that often has strong implications on national standings.

The next chapter of the rivalry is one of the most highly anticipated games so far this college football season. No. 3 Clemson (6-0, 4-0 ACC) hosts No. 5 FSU (5-0, 3-0) Saturday, and the game will air on ABC. ESPN’s College GameDay will host its show on the Clemson campus.

“The biggest thing is that the rivalry has grown because Clemson has been playing very well over the last couple of years,” said McPherson, who plays for the Tampa Bay Storm of the Arena Football League. “I don’t think it’s been bigger than this year, 3 and 5 going at it.

“When you look at it now, Florida State-Miami is a rivalry, but not like it was. … Florida is always going to be that tough, tough rivalry, but these last couple of years, they’ve been lower in those top 25 standings.
It’s arguable that Clemson has taken on that Miami-FSU [rivalry], because they’ve been so good lately.”

The Seminoles lead the series 18-8, but Clemson has won six of the past 10 meetings since snapping FSU’s 11-game win streak in 2003.

The rivalry has slowly evolved, forged from close contests between kin and matchups that have ultimately derailed conference championship, or even national championship, hopes.

“I always felt like it was a rivalry, even when Bobby Bowden [was coaching at FSU] and he had his kid over there, it’s always been a big game at Florida State,” said FSU linebacker Christian Jones, who is well versed in the rivalry after watching his older brother and father play for FSU. “Especially up there in Death Valley. I think it’s awesome playing up there. They have a live fan base and have some good players up there, too.”

Bowden’s son, Tommy, took over as Clemson’s head coach in 1999 and the annual matchup between FSU and Clemson became known as the Bowden Bowl.

Dabo Swinney replaced Tommy Bowden in 2008 and Jimbo Fisher took over for Bobby Bowden in 2010. With the new coaches, FSU-Clemson has only intensified as both programs have sustained high levels of success. FSU won on a last-second field goal in 2010 and Clemson held off a late FSU rally to win 35-30 in 2011. The Seminoles were ranked No. 4 when they beat No. 10 Clemson 49-37 in last year’s game.

“It’s no intimidation or anything like that. We want the big stage, we want the big games like that, with the bright lights,” FSU safety Terrence Brooks said of facing Clemson. “We want all people to be tuned in because you shouldn’t shy away from that.

“That should be something that gets you going, that [makes you want] to play even better. I had this one marked down. I’m ready to go.”

The week has been circled since the schedule was released so many months ago. It’s finally here. This is it. This is Clemson week.

No it’s not the day the Seminoles play them. The team isn’t hours away before kickoff. The Tigers aren’t about to touch their rock and run down that hill.
But does that mean there still isn’t reason to celebrate?

In a couple days, the Seminoles will be playing in their first AP top five matchup since 2011 vs. Oklahoma, and with two true Heisman trophy contenders at quarterback for both teams, the winning team will be propelled right into national championship contention. The atmosphere and electricity surrounding it is unlike any other game in recent memory.

In a year where people thought that Florida State would be in the midst of a rebuilding year, where they would be relegated to number two in the ACC behind Clemson, waiting to prepare for a national championship run in 2014.

This was supposed to be Clemson’s year, but instead we’re on the precipice of what very well may be the biggest ACC game ever. With Stanford losing in an upset to Utah, and the SEC and Pac-12 in good position to cannibalize each other, the winner of this game will be on the fast track to Pasadena. ESPN’s College Gameday will be in Death Valley 2.0 for the second time this season, and for the second straight year for the FSU-Clemson game.

Next Sunday, one of these fan bases will be thinking championship, and the other one will be in absolute shambles.

It leads me to question, why wait till Saturday to celebrate?

All over social media there will be posts of “Why can’t Saturday come sooner?” There will be people sitting in classes wondering why the week is going by so slow.

At this same time though, the Seminoles will be getting more TV coverage than Miley Cyrus. Everyone will be giving their opinions of who should win and why.

Promotional videos will come out of nowhere and articles like this will be gracing over every sports website, magazine and newspaper.

Embrace this. Embrace all of it.

Don’t wish it was Saturday. Soak in all that is Clemson week. Allow the electricity and excitement to build up so by Saturday you’re legitimately bleeding garnet and gold.
This time next week it’ll all be over. If the Seminoles win, then the path to the national title looks a lot brighter. There will be excitement surrounding the next game against NC State, but it’ll be nothing like this one. NC State week won’t be Clemson week.

On the other hand, if the Seminoles lose ( *knocks on wood* ) then the balloon of a possible national title winning season will deflate and go swirling away. Clemson is a good team and a loss to them in Death Valley is a high, if not a likely, possibility.

That reason alone should make you want to embrace the week leading up to the game. It’s going to be a crazy week and win or lose come game time, next week won’t be anything like it. Each day that goes by is one day closer to game day, but it also is another day closer to the end of one the biggest weeks in recent FSU football history.

So until then don’t wish it was Saturday. Be happy that Saturday is days away. Embrace it because soon it will all be gone.

There aren’t as many historical games like that with Miami. There isn’t the constant trash talk that takes place with the University of Florida.

But in recent history, there hasn’t been a bigger rival for the Seminoles than the Clemson Tigers, and it’s continuing to grow.

2011 was supposed to be the year that Florida State was finally “back” and would compete for an ACC Title, a BCS Berth and maybe a National Championship. A loss to Oklahoma may have ended the National Championship talks, but the following week’s loss to Clemson cemented that and put the Seminoles in a hole that they couldn’t climb out of for an ACC Title and BCS Berth.

Florida State players and fans alike had to spend the rest of the season watching as Clemson made it all the way to No. 5 in the nation, became the darlings of the ACC and laid claim to the ACC Title and BCS Bowl Berth that the Seminoles so highly coveted.

In 2012, No. 4 Florida State was pitted against No. 10 Clemson The campaign saw a huge role reversal as Florida State scored 28 unanswered points in the second half of the Clemson matchup to eventually claim the victory, 49-37. The game, a back-and-forth affair, was probably the greatest performance by the Seminoles in a game of that magnitude in a long time.

With the victory, the Seminoles went on to claim all they missed out on the year before, claiming the ACC Title, a BCS Berth and a BCS Bowl win.

Clemson and Florida State have brought themselves back to national prominence and their recent games have shown to be ones with heavy conference and BCS implications. This year, the story is still the same, yet very different. The two schools are still nationally prominent and the game will help shape the conference champion favorite again, but for the first time in the series’ history it is a top five matchup featuring two top Heisman contenders. The hype surrounding it has led College Gameday to return to the same school within six weeks for the first time in its history and has been tagged with monikers such as “the greatest game in ACC history.” That alongside message boards, Twitter and ESPN’s seemingly constant coverage of the matchup has only fed the tension between the two schools.

Seeds of the rivalry began many years ago with a one of the most famous plays in FSU history called the “puntrooskie”. It was 1988, and the game featured the No. 10 Seminoles and a No. 3 Clemson team poised to make a run at the national championship. The Seminoles tied at 21, faked a punt and Leroy Butler ran the ball 78-yards to set up the game winning 19-yard field goal with 32 seconds left, crushing the Tigers title hopes.

The golden years, which were the 90s, saw Florida State beat Clemson 11 consecutive times from 1992-2002. Despite the dominance, it still gave fans such memorable match-ups as the first couple Bowden Bowls (in which Bobby faced off against his son Tommy when he was the head coach of Clemson). The Bowdens played each other nine times while serving as the head coach of the opposing schools, with dad Bobby winning the series with five victories.

Since 2002 though and the 11 straight victories, Clemson has actually taken control of the series with six victories to FSU’s four in the past ten years. The home team has won each of the last six games, with the Seminoles last victory in Death Valley coming in 2001.

On Saturday, Florida State will be looking to reverse that trend, add another classic game to the series’ history and continue to grow the rivalry and possibly put it on par with that of Miami and UF.
