I was asked several times over this past week why I make nine bold predictions, instead of five or even 10? That’s an easy question for me to answer. Wayne Gallman and Travis Etienne. Two of the all-time greats, both of which sported the No. 9.
And with that…..
9 Bold Predictions
1. Clemson Defense, despite injuries, will continue to dominate and for the fourth time in five games will allowno touchdowns
2. After seeing most of their postseason opportunities seemingly dashed, the Tigers will be more relaxed, more spontaneous. They will look like a different team.
3. Death Valley and the fans will be rocking, almost deafening. The fans can, and most probably will, determine the success of the Boston College offense and therefore the outcome of the game.
4. The Clemson offense will have over 400 yards of total offense. With all the questions and implications over the last four weeks, things are about to turn and this group will begin to gel.
5. Clemson will score points in all facets of the game. Offense, defense and special teams. The Tigers will take it to the house for a score on a punt or kickoff return.
6. There will be a new wrinkled added to the offense this week. With Will Shipley sidelined, expect Will Taylor to have an impact.
7. Justin Ross and Joseph Ngata, will both have huge games. Their commanding presence will be a huge advantage for the Tiger offense.
8. The Tigers will lead in time of possession, giving the defense a much needed rest between series. As far as penalties, it’s part of the game. However, the number of penalties will be vastly reduced.
9. DJ Uiagalelei, Clemson’s much-beleaguered QB, will win the O’Rorke-McFadden Trophy and wear the MVP leather helmet. Like Cole Stout in 2014, he’s been the subject of much criticism and concern. Stout had his coming-out party against Boston College and I believe so will Uiagalelei.
