Clemson has a Week 3 matchup against Florida Atlantic. As you might expect, however, almost everyone is looking toward the Tigers’ Week 4 matchup with Florida State in Death Valley.
No matter how either team might perform before the matchup, Clemson-Florida State is a massive game in the ACC. If this game isn’t the biggest in the ACC each year, it is one of the top five.
That is why the game time for this season’s matchup between the two ACC powerhouses has fans angry, confused and frustrated. The ACC announced the game is set for a noon kickoff, which is not what people were expecting.
Here are some of the reactions to the game time that were posted to X, formerly known as Twitter:
It’ll be noon against the Noles in Death Valley.

Florida State and Clemson kickoff off at Noon objectively stinks.
— Matt Connolly (@MattConnollyOn3) September 11, 2023
Making Clemson a noon game is criminal
— Barstool FSU (@FSU_Barstool) September 11, 2023
Wow… Clemson vs FSU is a noon game….

Clemson will host FSU at noon on Saturday, Sept. 23, the ACC has announced.
I already know fans aren’t going to be happy about that one…

FSU Clemson fans getting a moon kick for potentially the biggest ACC match up of the year is pretty bad. I’m sure they are loving the ACC so much more after getting that time slot. https://t.co/O0UZadRw3Q

Prior to Clemson’s opener and FSU’s triumph over LSU, you reasonably assumed the Tigers and Seminoles were destined for a top ten clash on primetime.
Now? The top five Seminoles will face the unranked Tigers at noon on Sep. 23rd.
How quickly things can change.
