Manuel, Boyd take center stage for FSU-Clemson
EJ Manuel of Florida State and longtime friend Tajh Boyd of Clemson have known each other since middle school and now the top rated passers in the Atlantic Coast Conference headed into a top-10 matchup on Saturday.
Boyd got the best of things last year in Clemson's 35-30 win, while Manuel watched from the sidelines with a shoulder injury. Both players and teams are expected to be near full strength when No. 4 Florida State hosts the 10th-ranked Tigers.
Boyd, however, will have to contend with Florida State's defense that ranks first nationally in virtually every category.
