Prediction: Clemson Football at Miami
It’s not unusual for an offense with an inexperienced quarterback, inconsistent offensive line and relies on young receivers to have a bad day. What they don’t want is to have to bad days in a row.
The return of Antonio Williams will help, but we can’t be sure there won’t be rust.
Hopefully, some of the adjustments with playing time we saw on the offensive line against Wake Forest will yield positive dividends on the offensive line, especially when it comes to run blocking.
As for Cade Klubnik, he just needs to get out there and play well. He needs to find his open receivers and hit them. It’s that simple.
The Tigers also need their defense to continue the excellent play we’ve seen the last few weeks. Miami protected the ball during their 4-0 start. They have been turning it over in their last two losses. As Dabo Swinney has said, whoever wins the turnover battle here will win the game.
The wild card is Tyler Van Dyke. He is banged up, but we don’t know if it will impact him this weekend or not.
I’m looking for the Tiger defense to set the pace the same way they did in Syracuse. I don’t expect the offense will come out guns a-blazing, but I do think they settle in after a quarter and begin to put points on the board.
I like Clemson on the money line, Clemson minus the points and I’ll take the under on the total.
