While the No. 11 Clemson Tigers shouldn't have much trouble handling the FCS Furman Paladins on Saturday after beating true opponents in Auburn and Ball State, the game will be notable anyway as it will feature the Tigers' offense with its most dynamic weapon back in the lineup.

After serving his two-game suspension for an offseason drug arrest, Sammy Watkins will make his 2012 debut against Furman. Watkins became only the third true freshman to ever be named to the AP first-team All-American team after recording 82 passes for 1,219 yards and 12 touchdowns in his first season at Clemson.

Outside of that, though, the Paladins are expected to be a simple tune-up for Clemson as they prepare for the far more potent No. 5 Florida State Seminoles on the road in the subsequent week.

Game time, TV channel: 3 p.m. ET, RSN and ESPN3
