Win and you’re in. That’s the mentality that the Clemson Tigers need to have in order to punch their ticket to the College Football Playoff on Saturday Night. To do so, they’ll have to go through the ACC Coastal Division Champs Virginia Tech Hokies first.
Coming off their National Championship appearance from last year, Clemson came back this year with an 11-1 record, including wins against Auburn, Louisville, and Florida State. Their lone loss of the season came from a last-second field goal at home against the Pitt Panthers, and although Clemson hasn’t looked as good as they did last year, they’re still one of the best teams in the country. Junior Quarterback Deshaun Watson is having another Heisman-contending season, as he’s led the Tigers with his 34 touchdowns through the air and 4 on the ground. For Clemson to avoid the upset, Watson will have to continue his high level of play on Saturday.
The Hokies haven’t been too bad themselves this season, as they’ve posted a 9-3 record, including wins against North Carolina, Miami, and the aforementioned Pitt Panthers who beat the team they’ll be playing on Saturday. Virginia Tech’s offense isn’t nearly as good as Clemson’s, but their defense has led them throughout the season, and if they have any shot at upsetting the Tigers, the Hokie defense will have to play as good, if not better than they have all season.
On paper, Clemson is the better team and should clinch a birth in the College Football Playoff with a win Saturday night, but crazier things have happened. I’m not ruling out the Hokies, so we’ll just have to see what this matchup has in store for us.
