Turnovers a factor early

CLEMSON, S.C. -- What goes around comes around here in Death Valley. After returning an interception for a touchdown, Florida State let the Tigers back in the game with a turnover of their own, as a forced fumble by Kavell Conner lead to a two-play, 48-yard scoring drive. C.J. Spiller was able to punch it in on a two-point conversion, and the Tigers now trail, 17-14. It was the first two-point conversion of Spiller's career. There's not much he can't do, really.
Two plays before that, FSU fumbled, but left guard Rodney Hudson recovered it. This is an even game so far because both teams are making similar mistakes, and have the speed and talent to help compensate for them with big plays. Whichever team makes fewer errors and comes up with the key defensive stops will come out on top in the fourth quarter.
