The Clemson football team will look to rebound this Saturday afternoon when in-state FCS opponent S.C. State comes to Death Valley.
The Tigers are coming off their second-straight loss– if you count last season– and they will be looking to get back in the win column this weekend. But, it’s not just about getting back in the win column.
Clemson should obviously win this game. This afternoon will be more about developing depth and chemistry while fixing the problems that were apparent last weekend.
Three bold predictions for Clemson football against the S.C. State Bulldogs
1. D.J. Uiagalelei throws five touchdowns to five different receivers
D.J. Uiagalelei didn’t have the type of game that we had hope for to start out the 2021 season, but that doesn’t mean he won’t improve from Week 1 to Week 2.
Uiagalelei has been in the film room all week and the Tigers are going to give him chances to develop. The result? He’s going to have a big day.
Our first bold prediction is that Uiagalelei will throw five touchdown passes to five different receivers. If he throws five touchdowns, he would join an exclusive group that includes just a handful of Tiger quarterbacks all-time including Trevor Lawrence, Tajh Boyd, Deshaun Watson and Cullen Harper to throw five touchdown passes in a game.
To connect with five different receivers, though. That would be impressive, even if it’s against S.C. State.
