Despite Clemson’s astonishing loss to Miami, the Tigers will head to Raleigh next week favored over NC State. And pretty heavily.
The Tigers (4-3, 2-3) are currently a 10-point favorite over Dave Doeren’s Wolfpack (4-3, 1-2).
While the number may seem big, considering all of the struggles surrounding the Clemson football team, it’s really more of an indictment of where NC State is currently, who is just 2-2 at home this season.
The Pack are coming off of a bye week so will have had an extra week to prepare after suffering a 24-3 defeat at the hands of Duke last time out.
Clemson and Notre Dame have released depth charts ahead of this weekend’s matchup at Death Valley.
For the second time this season, Clemson will be an underdog at home.
The best offense in the ACC faces off with its best defense.
