Week 11 ACC College Football Picks: How The Clemson-Florida St. Game Affects Maryland

The Game: Clemson Tigers Vs. Florida St. Seminoles

Where It Will Be Played: Sunny Tallahassee, Florida

When: Saturday, 8 p.m.

Where you Can See It: ABC if you are in that market, ESPN3 everywhere else

The Odds: Florida St. favored by 7.5

What It Means For Maryland: The Terps at 3-2 currently sit in second place behind the Seminoles, who are 4-2 in the division, while Clemson is just a touch back at 3-3. If you're wearing a Maryland jersey, you want Clemson to beat Florida St.. It will bring Clemson a little bit closer to the Terps, but it will also knock the Seminoles down a little bit. As long as the Terps win out though, the winner of this game won't be able to catch them.

Prediction: Clemson is too inconsistent, and they will be missing their starting running back Andre Ellington. Florida St. has been playing relatively well since they got blown out in Oklahoma, but they are by no means a safe bet. At the end of the day however, I still think that the Seminoles are just a more talented team then the Tigers, and the home field advantage will certainly help. I've got the Seminoles 31-17 over Clemson.
