ESPN’s updated “Football Power Index” updated Wednesday.
Included in the FPI are projected results for every game on a team’s schedule.
Here’s what ESPN is predicting for every Clemson game this season. The percentage attached for each game is the win probability versus the respective opponent.
Saturday, Sept. 2 vs. Kent State: Win (99%)
Saturday, Sept. 9 vs. Auburn: Win (53%)
Saturday, Sept. 16 @ Louisville: Win (56%)
Saturday, Sept. 23 vs. Boston College: Win (95%)
