While they haven’t been blowing people away of late, Clemson is leaving no doubt that they should be the number one ranked team in the country. They will have two more games plus the ACC Championship to further establish that proof.
Standing in front of them this week is a struggling Wake Forest team that hasn’t won since a 3-0 victory at Boston College on October 10th. An upset over Clemson could be a slight saving point of the season, but Wake Forest has been so poor that it seems unimaginable.
Even the most creative or optimistic fan would have a difficult time imagining a scenario where Wake Forest wins this game at Clemson.
The Demon Deacons are averaging just 17.5 points per game. On the flip side, they’re only allowing 23.5 points per game.
However, they will be up against one of the most, if not the most, complete team in the country. Clemson has been dominant on both sides of the ball – particularly at home. That doesn’t bode well for the Demon Deacons.
Wake Forest is averaging just 11.6 points per game on the road. They managed just 7 last week against Notre Dame – a defense that is good but not great.
Wake Forest has to hope that Clemson overlooks them and they can keep it respectable in a sort of trap game for the Tigers.
But, that seems highly unlikely as the Tigers are beginning to sense how close that College Football Playoff berth is.
The committee has committed to Clemson as their number one team for a few weeks now and the Tigers only chance of falling out of that spot is with a loss. An unconvincing win this week likely will still keep them there – regardless of other results.
However, Dabo Swinney’s group shouldn’t be getting complacent. They had a little bit of a scare last week at Syracuse but nothing too serious. It might have been just enough to wake them up and make sure they keep their focus on what is in front of them.
DeShaun Watson is doing everything he can to not only keep Clemson undefeated but to shoot himself into the Heisman conversation. He has accumulated 3200 yards of total offense and has 28 total touchdowns to just 8 interceptions.
Watson has four rushing touchdowns in the last five games and last week, the Wake Forest defense allowed two rushing touchdowns to dual-threat Notre Dame quarterback DeShone Kizer.
The key for Clemson will be to not overlook Wake Forest on their quest for an ACC and National Championship. The strength of the Clemson defense combined with the weakness of the Wake Forest offense should be enough to force this one out of hand.
