Wake Forest returns from its holiday break to host Xavier in the Skip Prosser Classic, a 10-year series to honor the late head coach of both programs. The teams have split the previous two Skip Prosser Classic meetings with each winning at home.
The game is the third of five consecutive games away from Tallahassee which sees the Seminoles play in five different states in a span of 18 days. It is the first true road game of the season for Florida State.
Thursday, Jan. 3 conference play resumes. Clemson has won four of their past six games overall, and look to wrestle control of the series with Miami, which sits at 5-5 all-time. Miami won their second straight in the series last season, 68-47, in Coral Gables.
No. 14 Clemson beat No. 8 LSU, 25-24, in the Chick-fil-A Bowl thanks to a last-second 37-yard field goal by Chandler Catanzaro. Quarterback Tajh Boyd was named the MVP for his three touchdown performance.
