An open date was put to good use as Clemson tries to get healthy for the stretch run.

A banged-up Tiger squad lost in double-overtime at Notre Dame two Saturdays ago and will look to bounce back Saturday when they play at Florida State.

Clemson will be ranked fourth in both the Associated Press Top 25 and the Coaches Poll when they kick it off Saturday in Tallahassee.

In the coaches poll, Alabama is still at the top as the Tide received 57 first place votes. Notre Dame (3 first place votes) holds down the second spot followed by Ohio State, Clemson and Florida.

In the AP poll, Alabama had 60 first place votes with Notre Dame and Ohio State following with one first place vote. After Clemson sits Texas A&M in fifth place.
