The usually highly-anticipated ACC contest between Florida State and Clemson will have a start time and network by Sunday. According to a release from the conference, the game has been deemed a 6-day hold.

Clemson has defeated FSU in each of the last two years and will look to run that streak to three on Nov. 11 as the Seminoles invade the place known as Death Valley. The Tigers defeated FSU in Tallahassee last season by a 37-34 score and by a 23-13 margin in 2015 during the Seminoles’ last trip to Clemson.

Clemson hasn’t defeated FSU in three straight seasons since doing so from 2005-07 and is one of just two ACC schools ever to beat the Seminoles three years in a row. The winner of the annual FSU-Clemson game has gone on to win the ACC Atlantic in each year since 2009. Only the Tigers have a chance to keep that streak alive.

Both teams will look to pick up wins this week as the 2-5 Seminoles play host to a Syracuse team, who handed Clemson its only loss of the year. The sixth-ranked and 7-1 Tigers will play at N.C. State on Saturday in a battle for first place in the Atlantic division.
