The ACC released its hype video for the top ten match-up between No.10 Louisville and No.2 Florida State

The ACC has released its official hype video for Cards v Noles

There is going to be a lot written and said during the coming days about the importance and magnitude of Saturday's contest between host Louisville and Florida State.

The impact it will have on the ACC Atlantic Division race is huge.  The winner between the No. 2 Seminoles and the No. 10 Cardinals has an excellent first step in claiming the division crown and reaching the the ACC Championship game in Charlotte, N.C.. Win that game and you're most likely spending the first days on the New Year in the College Football Playoff.

The game also features a pair of Heisman Trophy candidates in Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson and Florida State running back Dalvin Cook.  Jackson, a sophomore, has created headlines from coast-to-coast during the first two weeks of the season.  While only playing a bit over five quarters in two blowout victories, Jackson has established new school records and a new ACC mark for offensive yards in a game.  Cook, who finished seventh in last season's Heisman race, leads the Seminoles with 174 yards on 34 carries with a pair of touchdowns.

Due to the game's potential impact on the College Football Playoff, a victory for either program is significant.  The result so key that ESPN GameDay will ascend on the Derby City of a football game for the first time ever.  The networks top crew - Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit and Sam Ponder - will be behind the mics.

With multiple national championships on its resume, most recently in 2013, Florida State has played in such games many times.  For Louisville, not so much.  The Cardinals have played in a few big games, including the top five matchup against West Virginia in 20016, but this is a rare chance to jump into the national title discussion.  A win would certainly further harden the cement of its modern-winning foundation and firmly keep the rapidly rising program in on the 'collision course' track.
