The Clemson Tigers will host the Boston College Eagles this Saturday in Death Valley. The Eagles will enter on the heels of their fourth straight win, while Clemson uncharacteristically enters after their second early loss of the season.
HISTORY: The Tigers and the Eagles have crossed paths in every season since 2005. Clemson leads the all-time series 19-9-2, and they’ve won ten straight.
Boston College Eagles
Boston College football looks like it could be back. After three straight wins to begin the season, BC survived their first real test when they took down Missouri at home.
Senior quarterback Dennis Grosel had his best game of the season against Mizzou, going 18-29 for 175 passing yards with two touchdowns. He’ll have to do much more if he wants to take down this group of Tigers, but the ground game has done the heavy lifting for the Eagles.
Redshirt sophomore Pat Garwo III is coming off of the best outing of his career, rushing for 275 yards and two touchdowns against Mizzou. He’s among the ACC leaders with 413 yards on 60 carries and four touchdowns.
Zay Flowers leads the team in receiving with 18 catches for 275 yards and two touchdowns. Freshmen wideout Jaden Williams has scored in both of the last two games.
Boston College will enter this game with a run defense physical enough to compete with Clemson. The Eagles haven’t allowed a 100-yard rusher all season.
Clemson is coming off of their second loss of the season, and they could potentially wander into uncharted territory. After struggling to defeat Georgia Tech at home, Clemson loss to NC State in double overtime last weekend, 27-21.
D.J. Uiagalelei didn’t yield the best results throughout the first month of the season. He tossed multiple touchdowns for the first time this season in the loss to NC State, but the sophomore signal caller only finished with 111 passing yards. The Tigers inability to push the ball and move through the air is alarming.
Freshman WIll Shipley’s injury won’t help matters. After breaking out with an 88-yard, two-score performance against Georgia Tech, the first-year running back is slated to miss a month. Kobe Pace will be the next man up, and he’s gained 93 yards on the season.
Justyn Ross leads the receiving core with 22 catches for 216 yards and three touchdowns. Junior wideout Joseph Ngata has caught 13 passes for 222 yards.
Clemson fought hard on the defensive end on the road against NC State, despite losing two key pieces during the game, only allowing 14 points in regulation.
Free Week 5 NCAA Football Pick
This contest puts Clemson in an early season must-win situation. It could also turn into a spot for them to respond in. The Tigers need a win now, and with an undefeated, yet manageable Boston College team set to come to town, Dabo’s team should take care of business.
4* Free Week 5 NCAA Betting Pick: Clemson -15.5
Now the Tigers are indeed 0-4 against the spread so far this year, and while this 17-point margin seems manageable, they haven’t shown much offensively through the first month of the season. This is still Clemson football though, and we will trust their pedigree here.
It could turn out to be a gift for bettors and a way for Clemson to get back on track. Take their game spread, and eye the under as it could be another physical ACC contest.
