The #2 team in the nation was tested in Week 1, but will get a chance to return home for what should be a rather easy game.
However, Troy has other things on their mind, as they enter play as huge underdogs against Clemson, hoping to shock the world here.
Troy certainly didn’t face the same level of competition last week, but they opened their season quite impressively.
Troy took it to Austin Peay with a 57-17 route.
The Trojans do have some small history to build off of. It was 2011 when Troy came to town and actually led the game 16-13 at the break.
For them to have any chance at sticking around here, their first task will be to get the running game going early.
Jordan Chunn finished last game with 161 yards on just 13 carriers. He’ll attempt to set the tone and tempo here early on. If he can get himself going and keep that clock ticking, it’s just more time to keep this Clemson offense off the field.
Defensively, just avoiding the big play will be a start. Clemson figures to take plenty of deep shots against this secondary. Not allowing receivers to get by them and forcing Clemson into some third down and long situations is a must.
#2 Clemson Tigers
Clemson is going to play every possession this season with a bit of a chip on their shoulders.
After falling just short in the National Championship last year, there is zero room for error with this team. Getting back there is not just the goal, it’s winning it.
There will be zero moral victories for this Clemson team and Dabo Swinney.
That all almost came to a crashing halt in Week 1, but the Tigers held off Auburn 19-13 to grab their first win of the season. However, backers weren’t pleased as they failed to cover the 7.5 point spread.
While Deshaun Watson gets all the attention his supporting cast really gets the job done. Last week, Wayne Gallman put up 123 yards on the ground and had some big time runs to move the chains.
Clemson shouldn’t endure many problems here, but this would be an ideal spot to go up a lot early and get the starters some bench time.
Clemson will pick the tempo up early and really look to get Watson some shots deep down field to receiver Mike Williams, who comes in off a giant Week 1 performance.
