Florida State at #2 Clemson, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC If this game were to be played for just one quarter, I’d consider taking the points with Florida State. Unfortunately for the Seminoles and their fans, four quarters will be played Saturday . Florida State's season has been defined by hot starts followed by monumental letdowns, and nothing would surprise me if this game followed suit. Despite Florida State’s disappointing year, the Seminoles still have talent, and since [...]
The game of the year in the ACC takes place Saturday afternoon. Overall it’s a sad state of affairs for the ACC in 2019. The conference has so little respect nationally that some pundits are foolishly theorizing that an undefeated Clemson team could be left out of the College Football Playoff.
In Week 11, Clemson takes on North Carolina State as 32 point favorites. It’s been a theme throughout the season that Clemson lines are almost obscenely high, but they’ve proven fully capable of covering them on the strength of their offense. In order to cover high lines an outstanding ability to score points is necessary. Clemson is third in the country in yards per game and sixth in points per game, and this is with the throttle coming off well before the full four quarters are complete.
While Florida State has been disappointing this season, the Seminoles have still shown more signs of life recently than Syracuse. Look for them to make a late-season push toward a bowl game.
Can Louisville keep it close or even spring a shocking upset, or will Clemson roll for the second straight week?
Georgia lost its first game of the season Saturday, but the real loser may have been Notre Dame, which fell to the Bulldogs earlier in the season. That was just one of the lessons we learned during Week 7 of the college football season.
The college football action was hot this past weekend, and we learned a few things. What we once thought was a two-team chase for the national championship just got a little more interesting and a new Heisman Trophy contender emerged.
Notre Dame lost a heartbreaker last week 23-17 at Georgia, and the letdown angle is in play as they return home to face the 18th ranked Virginia Cavaliers. With a 4-0 record, Virginia comes to South Bend for their biggest game of the year thus far, while Notre Dame just lost theirs. The main question is, how will Notre Dame Bounce back?
Clemson finds itself as a massive favorite in conference play again this week when it goes on the road again to take on North Carolina. When evaluating historical norms it seems absurd for a team to so consistently be such a big favorite in-conference, and yet this Clemson team is just different. They are massive favorites to win the ACC and will be double-digit favorites in every game they play this year.
Things are moving along smoothly in Death Valley, and with a remaining schedule that looks quite easy, there aren't any signs the Tigers will slow down. As Clemson enters Week 4 they find themselves 41.5 point favorites against Charlotte.
