Clemson was amazing last week, destroying Georgia Tech on the road.
Syracuse beat that same Georgia Tech team too but the spread is bigger with them coming to Clemson this weekend.
Syracuse did give the Tigers a little trouble a few seasons back but I am not expecting much of that on Saturday.
For Syracuse, you have to wonder where rock bottom is. Last week they not only lost at home to Liberty, but the Flames were the favourite in the game.
QB Randy Culpepper was getting the start with Tommy Devito our for the rest of the season at quarterback. He threw for three TDs with just one pick.
They were able to move the ball on the ground too. Freshman running back Sean Tucker had his second 100+ yard game of this season with 111 against Liberty. They will need to move try and control the clock to keep Clemson off the field.
They Syracuse defense was shredded against Liberty giving up over 500 yards. They ran for over 300 yards which is kind of a scary thought.
Scary because Clemson just scored over 70 points and has the best running back in the country.
I am still trying to process what we saw from Clemson last week. Being dominant is nothing new, but it was next level against Georgia Tech.
Trevor Lawrence threw his first interception in a year but that was just a minor speedbump as he rolled up over 400 yards and 5 TDs even though he barely played more than a half.
On defense, they held Georgia Tech to just 204 yards. They allowed only two third-down conversions all game long. This group can be just as dominant as the offense.
Scoring 73 points in a game is super impressive, but it hardly seemed like Clemson was pressing. Assuming they are interested in this spot we might be something similar.

This is a huge line, how could it not be after what we saw last week. That is a lot of points to give up with Clemson.

There has to be some regression with the Tigers in this one right. That seems likely but they could still score in the 50s and cover this one.
Even if they run more this week, using Etienne, that does not mean the offense is going to be any less explosive. He could have one of those games where he has 11 carries for 190 yards or someting.
