The Tigers are going to have a disappointing season, according to CBS.
Clemson is going to have a disappointing football season this fall.
That’s what CBS is predicting, anyway.
CBS has made over/under picks for all of the ACC’s teams and it has the reigning national champions going under their win total set by Vegas.
Clemson’s total is set at 9.5, so CBS is predicting the Tigers will win no more than 9 games.
Clemson — 9.5 (Under): The amount of breaks it takes to win 28-of-30 games requires some sort of return to the mean. Clemson will have the best defensive line in the country but the reboot of the offensive personnel and a schedule that includes Florida State, Louisville, Auburn and a road trip to NC State. And it’s in that NC State game that I think we’ll see one of a few breaks go the other way. Remember, it was last season when the Wolfpack had a 33-yard field goal centered up to beat Clemson in Death Valley before a stunning miss allowed the Tigers to continue their title run with an overtime win.
Clemson opens its 2017 season on Saturday, Sept. 2 against Kent State.
The Tigers’ 2017 schedule includes games against Auburn, @Louisville, Florida State and @South Carolina.
