Clemson has started the season slow on offense, but will look to turn things around against a Louisiana Tech defense that has been gashed so far this year. I have not been very impressed with Clemson this season, but they are the much better team in this matchup. Louisiana Tech will not be able to hold up on defense to keep the game within a score or two, but I like them to keep it within 33 points.
