What we know about Clemson Football, Week 4
Clemson Football is currently ranked 10th in the FBS and has lost a few games in the past few weeks.
This week, however, the Tigers were ranked #1 by CBS Sports and the Heisman Trophy was awarded to Heisman candidate Christian Kirk.
The Clemson offense has been a bit of a question mark as of late, but they’re not far off from the top.
Clemson is coming off a win over Virginia Tech in the Orange Bowl.
Their schedule is fairly brutal, but that’s not stopping them from playing good football.
Here’s a look at how the Tigers stack up against the rest of the FCS and Division 1 conferences this week.1.
Clemson vs. North Carolina State Clemson is 2-0 against NC State this season.
The Tar Heels were 0-3 against Clemson this season, and the Panthers have been shutout in three of their last four games against Clemson.
Clemson will be looking to bounce back from the loss at Wake Forest this weekend, as the Panthers are 0-4 on the season.
However, the win over North Carolina is a nice piece of business for Clemson.
The game has a total of 16 points and a total touchdown, and Clemson will need to score a lot of points in this one.2.
Clemson at South Alabama South Alabama was 5-2 this season and lost to Florida State in the Swamp.
The Gamecocks are 1-3 on the year against Clemson, and they’ll need to take advantage of a very tough schedule this week as well.
Clemson has played two ranked teams, Florida State and North Carolina, in the last four years.
Clemson’s schedule is very favorable and is expected to be even tougher this week, especially after losing to Virginia Tech.
Clemson can score plenty of points, but South Alabama’s defense has been impressive as of early this season as well, and there’s a good chance they’ll keep it going.3.
Clemson @ Georgia Tech Clemson’s two losses this season have come to Georgia Tech.
The Yellow Jackets have played three ranked teams (USC, Auburn, and Alabama) in the previous three years.
The Hokies are coming off their bye week and are expected to make the jump to the top of the conference standings.
Georgia Tech is one of those teams that needs to win this one, and it should be a tough test for Clemson this week with its two ranked opponents.
Clemson won this game last season and has a very difficult schedule this season in terms of scoring.
Clemson also has to take care of business against Georgia Tech, but a win would be a good way to improve its record against the Yellow Jackets.4.
Clemson, Texas A&M vs. Georgia State Clemson’s last game against the Aggies was a 35-28 loss on Nov. 6.
That was the last time the two teams played, as Clemson lost the game by a score of 21-10.
The two teams haven’t met since.
The last time Clemson and Texas A & M met was in 2012, and that game resulted in a 35.6-28 tie.
However and unfortunately for Clemson, the game was cancelled due to a storm.
The Tigers are 2-1 this season against Texas A, and should be able to win again this week against a team that is ranked in the top 10 in the country.5.
Clemson At Mississippi State Clemson will travel to Mississippi State for the first time since November 11, 2017, as part of a two-game series.
The Bulldogs will look to bounce right back from their Week 5 loss to South Carolina, as they’re now 2-3 in the series.
Mississippi State will be coming off of a win against LSU in the opener.
The Rebels are 0 for 5 on the road this season with only one win coming in the opening game.
Clemson had a great Week 5, winning at Alabama and at Georgia.
Clemson should be up for the challenge of facing a good team like Mississippi State this week and taking a victory in the process.6.
Georgia Southern Clemson is currently 8-1 against Georgia Southern this season (and 3-0 overall).
The Tigers have been on the losing end of a couple of tough losses to the Bulldogs in the season series, but the Bulldogs have not been able to come back since.
It will be interesting to see how the two sides will handle this matchup, as both teams are in a tough spot this week after their Week 3 bye week.
The only question is if Clemson can get back on track in the second half of the season, but it will be tough for them to do that with this week’s schedule.7.
Clemson and Georgia Tech at Vanderbilt The two undefeated teams will meet in Nashville, Tennessee this weekend.
Vanderbilt has a bye this week before facing Clemson in Nashville.
Georgia has a game against North Carolina on Saturday.
Clemson wins both of those games, but both are scheduled for Saturday night in Nashville as well as the road game against Vanderbilt.
The biggest question for Clemson is how they’re going to bounce-
