Both teams are where they want to be. The Duke Blue Devils are going bowling and they have seven wins on the year. Clemson also is where they want to be as a potential playoff team.
Duke Blue Devils
The Duke Blue Devils have had a really good year. That road win against Northwestern in September looks better and better. On the other side losing to Virginia Tech was a it of an ugly loss as the season goes on.
Nevertheless, the Blue Devils have won their fair share of games, but they have three conference losses and I’m sure they would have liked to have won the Coastal division.
Statistically, Duke has been well-rounded on both sides of the ball. Duke ranks 57th in total yards, 54th in passing yards, 60th in rushing yards, and 48th in points scored.
Defensively, Duke is 69th in total yards, 33th in passing yards, and 49th in points scored. They do struggle in the run game and I would look for the Tigers to take advantage of that as Duke ranks 108th in rushing yards.
Clemson is one of the best teams in the nation. There’s not a whole lot more there needs to be said. Clemson, on both sides of the ball, is one of the best in nation when you look at the eye test and statistically.
Clemson ranks offensively 8th in total yards, 28th in passing yards, 11th in rushing yards, and 5th in points scoring. On the defensive side of the ball they are 3rd in total yards, 8th in passing yards, 4th in rushing yards, and 2nd in points scoring.
So, basically, they are a playoff team on both sides of the ball. Sure, they haven’t played the stiffest of competition, but they’ve made their opponents look like they don’t belong and that’s all you can ask for.

Duke will be up against it. Clemson is obviously rolling and they are looking to make a statement as we head into deep November. Clemson has been peaking and they should continue their hot play at home against Duke.
A fifty burger is very likely which would be their third in their last four games. I’ll take Clemson to win by more than four touchdowns.
