The Clemson Tigers look to keep their 24-game winning streak alive as they travel to Raleigh to take on the NC State Wolfpack in ACC action.
Clemson is one of seven remaining undefeated teams in FBS, but was left on the outside looking in on the first College Football Playoff poll. But with No. 1 Ohio State playing No. 4 Penn State, and No. 2 LSU playing No. 3 Alabama soon, the Tigers just need to keep winning to get into the top four. That shouldn't be too difficult this week, as the Tigers take on the Wolfpack.
NC State has nosedived this year after reaching bowl games in each of the last five seasons. They play three of their last four games at home, which should help matters, but their scoring troubles are matched only by their inability to stop other teams from scoring.
The betting line indicates a pretty easy blowout in favor of the Tigers, even with the team hitting the road.
Here are the details for the game:
Game Time: 7:30 PM ET
Announcers: Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Maria Taylor
There's little doubt that Clemson will be in the College Football Playoff if they go undefeated in the regular season and win the ACC title. But their final two games of the season are a little more intimidating now than they were at the start of the season.
Wake Forest is arguably the second-best team in the ACC, and would replace Clemson in the ACC title game by winning out and picking up a massive upset of the Tigers in the process. South Carolina, which Clemson faces in the season finale, has already knocked off Georgia, suggesting that they have upset potential in them as well.
The Tigers have little room for error in the final weeks, so if there are any things that need polishing, this would be the game to get them corrected.
