The Clemson Tigers and the North Carolina Tar Heels will match up on the college football circuit Saturday.
Clemson rolls into here at 4-0 on the year. The Tigers have so far taken out Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Syracuse and Charlotte.
In the 49ers game, Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence had 94 yards and two touchdowns. Travis Etienne led the rush on 61 yards and a score while Joseph Ngata led the receivers on 60 yards and a TD.
Over on the UNC side, they’re 2-2 this year. The Tar Heels posted wins over South Carolina and Miami (FL) to open up but then fell to Wake Forest and App State in their last two games.
In the Mountaineers game, North Carolina QB Sam Howell put up 323 yards, three touchdowns and two picks, while Javonte Williams had 94 rush yards. Dazz Newsome led the receivers on 88 yards and a TD.
Clemson is 7-0 ATS in their last seven road games and 8-1 ATS in their last nine conference games. The Tigers are 5-1 ATS in their last six after a straight-up win and 4-1 ATS in their last five on grass.
Meanwhile, the Heels are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games and 9-4 in their last 13 conference games. UNC is 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 in September and 1-4 ATS in their last five after a straight-up loss.
Clemson had a comfy 38-3 lead at halftime against Charlotte, so they got playing time for a lot of lower-tier guys (and still played well). That makes a score of 93-16 over their last two games.
As for NC, they’ve blown some opportunities over their last two games, and all of them have been close. I don’t think this one will be, so I’m going Clemson.
