12. Wake Forest

Yes, I know what you’re thinking, where is Wofford, where is Appalachian State? Wake Forest is a FBS opponent and they would easily beat Wofford, or even a mid-major FBS team like Appalachian State. To that I would say, yes, most likely Wake Forest can beat Wofford or App State, but I would not say they do it 10 out of 10 times. The Demon Deacons finished the season 3-9 overall last season, with losses to Louisiana Monroe and Utah State. The only conference win from Wake Forest came when they defeated Virginia Tech 6-3 in double overtime in, what may have been, the most boring game of the 2014 football season.

The Demon Deacons return quarterback John Wolford and they should have a pretty decent defense, but they lack play makers on the offensive side of the ball and, while their defense may keep a game close for a half, they will not be able to continually shutdown an explosive offense like that of the Tigers’. I don’t see anyway possible, even with injury, Clemson loses this game in Death Valley, especially since this game will be in late November, a time where the Tigers should be playing some of their best football.
