1. Ian Book vs. Clemson’s secondary
Really, the game will come down to this.
Ian Book vs. the Clemson secondary. Can the Tigers find a way to slow down the Notre Dame passing game?
Even if Dexter Lawrence can’t play Saturday, I don’t expect the Irish to have very much success on the ground. That means Notre Dame will have to throw the ball.
If the secondary of Clemson can hold up, the Tigers will be able to take care of the Irish.
If they can’t, the defense will have a rough day.
