This is the first Face Off podcast of the 2012 season, a new feature to preview some of the biggest games on the schedule. Nicholas Cage and John Travolta did not respond to my email requests, and John Woo responded with GIF's of explosions. So I was pleased to welcome Coley Harvey, Florida State reporter for the Orlando Sentinel, and Travis Sawchik, who covers Clemson for the Charleston Post and Courier, to the podcast to help me break down the Top- 10 tilt between the Tigers and Seminoles on Saturday night.
First, you get a preview from each writer as they direct what their team needs to focus on when Clemson has the ball. Then we swap sides at halftime as Travis and Coley give their keys to the game when Florida State has the ball. I also asked each writer to give one under-the-radar player who could impact the game, as well as their game prediction.
In a hurry? Check the contents below for specific topics.
