CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Get ready for the first College Football Playoff game when No. 5 Florida State and No. 3 Clemson meet on Saturday.
While the four-team chase for the BCS title doesn't start until 2014, the playoffs will probably look and feel very much like Saturday night's Atlantic Coast Conference showdown between the Seminoles (5-0) and Tigers (6-0) in a jam-packed stadium, ESPN College GameDay will be on campus with a track to the national title game at stake.
There will even be at least one playoff selection committee member on hand: Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich.
Tigers quarterback Tajh Boyd and Florida State's Jameis Winston say their teams are keeping the frenzied atmosphere in perspective as they get ready for the ACC's first matchup of top-five teams since 2005.
