The Clemson Tigers and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish face off in the ACC Championship game at Bank of America Stadium.

When these two squads faced off earlier this year it was the Fighting Irish who won, but the Tigers were without Trevor Lawrence. 

The only loss this season for Clemson was against Notre Dame, but they know with a win in this game they are in the college football playoffs. On the season, Clemson is averaging 46 points per game while their defense is giving up 18.3 points per game. Clemson is averaging 504.3 yards per game. Trevor Lawrence has thrown for 2431 yards, 20 touchdowns, and three interceptions. On defense this year Clemson is giving up 18.3 points per game and if they want to come away with a victory the defense is going to need to step up. In the first game against Notre Dame they gave up 47 points and they need to be strong.

On the other side of this matchup is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish who have a perfect record, but they might not be guaranteed a spot in the college football playoff depending on how this game goes. This is going to be a tougher test going against Lawrence and in the first game they gave up 40 points and they need the defense to be better. Notre Dame on the season is giving up 17.1 points per game. Under center for Notre Dame is Ian Book who has thrown for 2381 yards, 15 touchdowns, and two interceptions. Notre Dame is averaging 235 yards per game on the ground and they also need to control the game with that. 

Clemson is 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 games on grass. The under is 6-2 in Notre Dame’s last 8 games on grass.

Clemson has Trevor Lawrence in this one, but I still think Notre Dame’s offense will keep it close. I think Clemson will still find a way to win the game, but Notre Dame will keep it close. Back Notre Dame to cover the spread. This game should be within six points.
