TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Clemson Tigers have been one of the most dominant football programs in the ACC and the country over the past five years.

The Tigers are coming off a bye week, and for the first time since being diagnosed with COVID-19 earlier this month, quarterback Trevor Lawrence will make his return on Saturday.

Playing the Tigers is a tough task for anyone. For a Florida State squad trying to find an identity, it's even more of a tall task.

The Seminoles enter Saturday's match-up a 34.5 point underdog, but that doesn't intimidate head coach Mike Norvell one bit.

"Even though nobody on the outside gives us much of a chance for this week or at this year in a lot of aspects, but the message is continuing to believe in the process," said Norvell. "Continue to believe in yourself. At the end of the day, we'll get three and a half hours to go play the game on Saturday. I've been able to live that throughout my coaching career, my playing career, and in some aspects of my life in some of those areas. That's what this is all about. It's about doing things people don't think you can do."

Saturday's match-up with the Tigers is set for a noon kick inside Doak Campbell Stadium.
