The #3 team in the nation comes in off their biggest win of the season.
Now, Clemson will look to avoid a let down when they take on the Boston College Eagles on Friday night, from Massachusetts.
#3 Clemson Tigers
The Tigers coughed up a 28-10 halftime lead and found themselves trailing late in the 4th quarter.
QB Deshaun Watson may have had his Heisman moment when he led the Tigers down the field and capped the game winning drive with just 3:14 to go when he found WR Jordan Leggett for a 31 yard touchdown pass.
Up by 6, the Tigers still needed a stop inside the 10 as they forced Louisville to turn it over on downs with an open field tackle with just seconds remaining.
Clemson has the signature win now and will look to avoid any sort of let down here, on the road against a much weaker Boston College team.
The good news for Clemson is that they already have some tough road experiences under their belts. They have already had to go on the road to Auburn and Georgia Tech.
While they failed to cover against Auburn they blew Georgia Tech out, covering the 10.5 point spread.
Looking ahead is the only realistic chance of the Tigers losing. Clemson will play NC State next week, the only team currently within striking distance.
The win over Louisville essentially puts them 2 games up on them thanks to tie breaking rules.
Boston College Eagles
The Eagles have already fell twice within conference play and now have to deal with one of the top teams in the nation on Friday.
Boston College has won back to back games, but the opposition talent level has been rather weak. They took down Wagner and Buffalo, but will now finish off with 6 of their last 7 against ACC participants.
The Eagles offense hasn’t been overwhelming anybody this season, but they are a much more balanced type than they’ve been in the past.
Boston College averages 172.6 pass yards per game, while rushing for 163.
They’ll lean on their impressive defense here, that ranks tops in a lot of categories. The Eagles rank 1st in total yards against (202), pass yards against (124), and 7th in rush yards against (78).

Still, Clemson is far more faster and more physical than Boston College. Look for them to wear them down in the 1st half and pull away in the 2nd half.
