The Line: Clemson Tigers -47
The Wofford Terriers and the Clemson Tigers will match up on the college football gridiron Saturday.
Wofford is sitting at 5-2 on the year. The Terriers have fallen to SC State and Samford but taken out Gardner-Webb, VMI, East Tennessee State, WCU and Chattanooga since.
In the win over the Mocs, Wofford QB Joe Newman posted 134 yards, while Blake Morgan managed 82 rush yards. Newman was also effective on the ground with 66 yards and three scores.
Over on the Clemson side, they’re unblemished at 8-0 so far. The Tigers have taken out Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Syracuse, Charlotte, UNC, Florida State, Louisville and Boston College this season.
In the blowout win over BC, Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence managed 275 yards with three scores, and Travis Etienne managed 109 rush yards with three scores. Diondre Overton led the receivers there with 119 yards and three scores on three catches.
The Terriers are 4-0 ATS in their last four after a straight-up win and 4-1 ATS in their last five after posting less than 275 total yards in their previous game. Wofford is also 4-1 ATS in their last five after posting less than 170 yards passing in their previous game.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 4-0 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 5-1 ATS in their last six home games. Clemson is 4-0 ATS in their last four after posting more than 280 yards passing in their previous game.
Wofford’s win over the Mocs wasn't exactly the prettiest thing in the world, but they got the W and are sitting on a five-game win streak after a sketchy opening pair. The Terriers have been scoring well in their streak, posting at least 35 points in each game.
Then there’s Clemson, who has made a habit of destroying teams this season (outside of the UNC scare, that is). Still, all things considered I like Wofford’s offensive potential just enough for them to eke into a cover in this one, so long as they don’t come in overwhelmed.
