The Clemson Tigers look to remain undefeated by winning their 15th straight home game. Deshaun Watson is completing 70.3 percent of his passes for 1,936 yards, 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Watson has nine touchdown passes in his last three games. Artavis Scott and Deon Cain have combined for 836 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Charone Peake has 19 receptions. The Clemson Tigers ground game is averaging 218.1 yards per contest, and Wayne Gallman leads the way with 874 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, Clemson is allowing 17.6 points and 278.1 yards per game. Ben Boulware leads the Tigers with 49 tackles, Cordrea Tankersley has three interceptions and Shaq Lawson has 6.5 sacks. Jabril Robinson and Zach Riggs are questionable.
The Seminoles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 7-16 ATS in their last 23 games overall. The Tigers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in November and 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Seminoles are 1-8 ATS in their last 9 meetings in Clemson and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 meetings overall.
This line is crazy to me, as the Florida State Seminoles are actually the more talented team and has speed everywhere you look to keep Clemson on its toes. I look for Delvin Cook to have a monster game and for the Noles to hang, if not win outright.
