Clemson is looking like a strong candidate to return to the playoffs, but this might be their toughest remaining test with Florida State struggling.
This is the first conference game for Virginia Tech. Their strong defense just might make them the leading contenders in the ACC Coastal.
Clemson won the the title a year ago and are looking great this season. It is amazing how different they are though. They are averaging close to 300ypg on the ground and given up next to nothing on defense.
Kelly Bryant is not Deshaun Watson. He might be a better athlete though and on this team they can overcome his imperfections.
The defensive line is better than most in the NFL. They are the reason the Tigers are in the top 12 in all major defensive categories but it is not like there are a bunch of chumps behind them.
The Hokies have a decent win over West Virginia in the opener but since then they have not really played anybody. That all changes starting this week.
The Virginia Tech defense has not been as good as Clemson’s but their numbers are good, especially where it matters the most – they are 6th in points allowed at 10ppg.
The offense has been a bright spot. They are very balanced and freshman QB Josh Jackson has looked great. His athleticism and patience and definitely going to be tested in this one.

There is lots of evidence that this could be a real defensive battle. Whoever is able to get 7s instead of 3s could easily be the winner and there might not be a lot of those.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Clemson -7
College football is funny sometimes. Games that are really close can wind up looking anything but. I think this will be one of those with Clemson the beneficiary.
Look for the Tigers and Hokies to be caught up in a defensive battle with the Tigers making a couple of explosive plays late that put the game out of reach.
