The Florida State Seminoles will face the Clemson Tigers in week four of the 2011 College Football Season. Both teams are coming off big week three games. The Seminoles lost to the Oklahoma Sooners, the current number one team in the country, and the Tigers defeated the Auburn Tigers, the 2010 BCS National Champions and holder of the nations longest win streak at 17. This game will be decided by whether FSU is able to bounce back after their big home loss or is Clemson able to build on last weeks game to get big back to back victories. This game is also more important for each team in regards to the ACC Title. The winner can start their in-conference play with a win and get one step closer to meeting in the Championship game
