In news that should not really surprise anyone, it was just officially announced that next week’s edition of ESPN’s College GameDay will set themselves up in Death Valley for the huge top-ten showdown between the Clemson Tigers and the Florida State Seminoles.

Florida State, ranked eighth in the nation currently, is sitting on a bye this week after their 63-0 trouncing of Maryland last week. It will be the first tough test for their dynamic redshirt freshman QB Jameis Winston, who has taken the college football world by storm.
This was almost in danger of not happening, though, due to Clemson having a bit of trouble with Boston College today at home. However, they were able to hold off the persistent Eagles squad and currently hold a 24-14 lead with under a minute to go.
So now, Florida State will trot into Death Valley next week, where they were upset two years ago, with their unscathed record and their star quarterback, and Clemson will follow suit, creating yet another ‘Game of the Year.’
This will mark the second time this season that ESPN’s flagship college football show will be in Clemson, following their appearance in Week 1 for the Tigers’ battle with the Georgia Bulldogs.
