ESPN's Desmond Howard Is Placing This Top 10 Team On "Upset Alert"

Desmond Howard gives his take on ESPN.

There were several top 25 upsets during the fourth week of the 2018 college football season. Will the same be true in Week 5?

We're a couple of hours away from finding out.

ESPN college football analyst Desmond Howard appeared on SportsCenter this morning and was asked if any of the top teams are "vulnerable" heading into today's games.

His answer: No. 3 Clemson.

The Tigers, which officially made a quarterback change this week, are set to host undefeated Syracuse. Kickoff is set for noon on ABC.

These two teams provided college football with one of the biggest upsets of the 2017 season, as the Orange knocked off the Tigers at the Carrier Dome last fall.

This year, Clemson is going with five-star freshman Trevor Lawrence at quarterback. Dabo Swinney officially announced the change earlier this week. It prompted a transfer from veteran quarterback Kelly Bryant.

Howard thinks that the quarterback change and last season's upset could make Clemson "vulnerable" this afternoon.

We'll find out soon.

Clemson and Syracuse are set to kick off at noon on ABC.
