The Clemson Tigers will head on the road to face the NC State Wolfpack this Saturday in an FBS college football matchup. The Tigers have won the last eight games between these two programs.

Clemson is now 2-1 after a 14-8 win over Georgia Tech last week. It was a defensive struggle, as neither team managed over 300 yards of total offense. D.J. Uiagalelei was 18/25 for just 126 yards passing. They were able to get some good production on the ground, racking up 158 and two scores in the game. Will Shipley had both touchdowns for the Tigers. Georgia Tech is averaging 174 yards per game on the ground, but the Clemson front seven limited them to under 100 yards in the game. To start the season, Clemson is averaging 22 points per game and is allowing just seven to the opposition. They have averaged 188.7 yards through the air, and 134 rushing yards per game.

NC State is coming off of a 45-7 win at home against the Furman Paladins last time out. They racked up 505 yards of total offense. Devin Leary threw for 259 yards and three scores in the game. Zonovan Knight only needed 11 carries to accumulate 104 yards and a score on the ground. On defense, they limited the Paladins to under 200 yards of total offense. To start the year, NC State is averaging 33.3 points per game and allowing 10.3 to the opposition. Leary ranks 31st in the nation with 794 passing yards this season.

Clemson is 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games, 8-2 on the money line, and the over is 5-5.

NC State is 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games, 7-3 on the money line, and the over is 4-6.

This will be NC State’s biggest test of the year thus far. Clemson has arguably the best defense in the nation, but the Wolfpack have done a good job limiting their opponents to start the year. They have yet to face an offensive line like the Tigers though, so it will be interesting to see if they can slow them down. However, the smart money is on Clemson, as they shut down one of the better offenses in Georgia earlier in the season. It will be unlikely that NC State will be able to move the ball consistently, so Clemson should be able to run the ball and cash in on some short fields. Give me the Tigers to cover.
