It is unclear the extent of what happened, and it doesn't seem like anyone got the brush-up on video. Still, it's hard to see how this happens, especially from Florida State's side. Many were quick to say as much, considering the 59-10 Clemson win.

Star freshman Trevor Lawrence had one of the best games of his young career against Florida State in the win.

He completed 20-of-37 passes for 314 yards and four touchdowns, without an interception.

FSU was held to just 247 yards, and failed to break even on the ground. The Seminoles posted -21 yards rushing.
