Clemson’s home loss as double digit favorites last week appeared to be damaging to their playoff hopes but this week’s rankings proved much different.
Part of that is credit to Pittsburgh but some of that is just awareness of how good Clemson can be. The Tigers obviously can’t afford another loss this week against a pesky Wake Forest team.
Based off of the rankings this week, the Tigers still appear to control their own destiny and will need to take care of business on the road this week against a pesky Wake Forest team.
Obviously, the Tigers have been very impressive thus far and are deserving of their ranking. This isn’t about if they will win – they should be able to do that – but what is the bet in this game?
The Wake Forest defense slowed down Louisville last week in the first half so Clemson will be aware of their defensive talent. The offense for Wake Forest though is very weak.
Pittsburgh put up 43 points last week on Clemson but that is credit to James Conner and Nate Peterman. Both are experienced and talented offensive playmakers which was evident last week.
However, Clemson ‘s defense will likely feel insulted after allowing that many points and I expect them to be playing angry this week.
While Clemson should control their own destiny, they can’t give the committee any reason to think they aren’t deserving by putting an unconvincing performance together this week.
While the Demon Deacon may be able to slow them down some, the defense should help the offense in this one for Clemson. Expect the Tigers to be smothering the Demon Deacon offense.
Wake Forest Demon Deacons
The Demon Deacons are 6-4 for a reason – their defense has been very good. They are allowing just 21 points per game and only 381 total yards per game.
Clemson’s offense will present its challenges as it is very dynamic but Wake Forest was able to keep Heisman candidate Lamar Jackson in check for at least a half last week.
Maintaining that defensive performance proved to be too difficult over the course of a full game as their offense failed to get too much going.
Both their run game and pass game have been inconsistent and there are few game changers in the Demon Deacon offense.
They will be relying on their defense once again in this game but will be facing the most angry Clemson team of the season.
The Tigers have been poised to make the playoff from the start but after losing last week, they feel threatened.
The Demon Deacons will now be tasked with being the team to potentially ruin the party for the Tigers.
