The #2 Clemson Tigers go back home to face off against ACC opponent Boston College on Saturday night. The Clemson Tigers are undefeated on the season and look to gain some style points over Boston College. BC comes in 4-3 with some great wins on their resume, but also some really bad losses.
No one can quite figure out which Boston College is showing up each matchup in 2019. Clemson is rolling and sophomore quarterback Trevor Lawrence seems to have finally found his stride in his second year.
This is a very important matchup for both teams for very different reasons. Clemson is looking to get into the College Football Playoff and keep their winning streak alive while Boston College is attempting to knock on the door of the ACC Championship.
Boston College Eagles
Boston College has had one of the most up and down years so far in 2019. While the Eagles offense seems to be one that the BC fans could be proud of, the defense has been brutal. Giving up 28 points a game and almost 500 yards on defense, the Eagles have struggled to stop just about anyone.
To make matters worse this week, Boston College’s starting quarterback Anthony Brown went down last week with a season-ending knee injury. This should heavily impact the chances of an upset and the Eagle’s ability to score.
While averaging almost 35 points a game on offense, we will see a new look Boston College offense on the field in Clemson. BC will try and control the clock and go more on the ground to stop the Clemson offense from getting too many possessions to try and take this road win.
The number one preseason team in the country the Clemson Tigers have looked unusually vulnerable in their first seven games. Granted, the Tigers have won all of their games in the first eight weeks. The Clemson offense and especially Trevor Lawrence have looked unusually human with interceptions that have been uncharacteristic for the true sophomore.
Lawrence came into the season with some of the highest expectations in the country. A favorite to win the Heisman trophy and favorites to also win the College Football Playoff as well. Lawrence has thrown eight interceptions and has only thrown for 1500 yards in seven games.
While these numbers are still fantastic for anyone, the expectations have not quite been met for the Clemson offense. Against a sub-par Boston College team that is banged up, we may see Lawrence and company turn that around.

Free Week 9 NCAA Football Pick
Clemson has a ton on the line as they host Boston College. It would be rare to see the Tigers stumble even a little against a team that has way less talent and has their starting quarterback out for the season. We should see Clemson really roll on Saturday and continue their winning ways.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Clemson -33.5.
Pessimistic would be the best way to describe having a huge spread like this with Clemson having to cover at home. With the timely injuries that will help Clemson and the offense finally starting to come around like they did last year, the Tigers should wrap this one up.
Expect the Tigers to dominate BC and come away with a huge victory.
