Teams that disappointed played in South Carolina on Saturday in an ACC clash. Florida State visited Clemson.
And if you think those teams have come up poorly for the 2021 season, imagine how those Seminole supporters felt after this play.
Clemson led 24-20 and Florida State needed a miracle.
The same kind of miracle bettors who had the Tigers and had given 9.5 points needed.
Off the play went and FSU decided to try and lateral its way to an incomparable victory.
What happened, instead, was the mother of all covers — translate that into bad beat who had money on FSU plus 9.5 points.
The play unfolds and the Seminoles’ backward passes are going perilously in the wrong direction.
The final one becomes a total disaster as Clemson’s Barrett Carter recovers the ball and is knocked into the end zone for the touchdown that makes it 30-20. There was no PAT in case you were concerned.
Yes, the Tigers won by 10 and if you had 9.5 points … you lost.
