Clemson's Dabo Swinney believes there's strength in diversity.
So does Florida State's Jimbo Fisher.
Both coaches take their philosophy on the recruiting trail and back it up with game-day performance.
So far this season, 19 players have caught passes for the Tigers, including a school-record 11 who have notched touchdown receptions. A dozen players have carried the football on rushing plays, and, in all, 13 offensive players have scored touchdowns.
Florida State, meanwhile, has 11 touchdown scorers so far this season.
"It's a philosophy that we have - the more playmakers you have, the tougher it is for the defense to concentrate on just one guy," Swinney said. "When you have multiple guys who can make plays, it creates the balance you want on your team and the competiveness you want in your practice environment."
Clemson's playmaking arsenal has advanced to the point that Swinney says he no longer pays attention to who's in the game at a particular time.
"There was a time when certain guys, like C.J. Spiller, had to be everywhere," he said. "We weren't going to win unless they were where they needed to be, to give us a chance. Now we're pretty comfortable with who we substitute.
"That's what makes us so difficult to handle. Sammy (Watkins) is going to get his touches, but he's also the best decoy we've got. He's the bait. They bite on that one, and that creates opportunities for other people."
Swinney says he expects the Tigers' game against the Seminoles on Saturday to come down to "a few plays - a few guys making plays."
"We don't win this game if our playmakers don't make plays," Swinney said. "From Tajh Boyd to Sammy Watkins to Martavis Bryant to Adam Humphries to Cat (Chandler Catanzaro). When the Heat show up, if LeBron (James) doesn't play, they don't have a very good chance of winning.
"That's just the name of the game. Your best players have to play great for you win games like this. Everybody's got a role, and some guys' roles are bigger than others. That's just part of it.
"It was the same way in the Georgia game. We don't win that game if our playmakers don't make plays."
Swinney said Florida States puts its playmakers into positions that afford them a variety of opportunities, and that quarterback Jameis Winston has shown that he can execute in all phases.
"With Jameis, they really don't do anything different from what they've always done," Swinney said. "We'll see a lot of screens, they'll run the heck out of the football, and there will be a lot of play-action and a good amount of drop-back. They'll take some shots down the field, and if you play off, they'll throw it underneath you on crossing routes. They have quarterback runs built into what they do, and they'll run a little bit of option.
"It's all the same things they were doing four years ago. They just do a good job at it."
Swinney doesn't put much stock in rankings or point spreads, and he says he won't be using Clemson's status as a three-point underdog as a motivational tool.
"I guess whoever comes up with that stuff thinks that Florida State is a better team," Swinney says. "But I really don't think any of that matters. At the end of the day, it all comes down to executing on the field. This is a toss-up, if you ask me.
"It's just like the Clemson-Georgia game. You have two great teams, both want to win, and both have great aspirations. Being an underdog or a favorite is no factor. We know they're a great team and we have great respect for them. And I know that they know we're a good football team.
"We just need to go play well."
