FSU Falls to Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - C.J. Spiller had a career-high 165 yards
rushing and his 20th touchdown of at least 50 yards and Clemson
took its biggest step yet toward an Atlantic Coast Conference title
with a 40-24 victory over Florida State on Saturday night.

Spiller, the Tigers' star senior, caught a 58-yard TD pass from
Kyle Parker and, with 312 all-purpose yards, surpassed the school
record of 310 he set in Clemson's 40-37 overtime win at Miami two
weeks ago.

He also closed Clemson's fifth victory over the Seminoles in the
past seven meetings with a high-stepping, 5-yard scoring run as the
orange-clad fans shook Death Valley.

Spiller and the Tigers (6-3, 4-2) are now in control of the ACC's Atlantic Division with games against North Carolina State and Virginia left.
