Clemson vs Iowa State Cheez-It Bowl Preview

If you were to tell Clemson and Iowa State before the season that they’d be playing each other in a bowl game in Florida, they’d have rightly assumed it would’ve been the Orange Bowl in a College Football Playoff semifinal.

Iowa State came into the year loaded with experience and talent coming off a breakthrough 2020 season, and Clemson came into the year as … Clemson.

It should say something about what Dabo Swinney has created that a 9-3 season is considered a massive disappointment. This game isn’t just about closing with a strong victory to get to ten wins. It’s about what might be happening going forward for a program that’s used to any season-ending losses coming in the playoff.

Former Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables is the new Oklahoma head coach, and a few players are leaving for the transfer portal, but the nation’s second-best scoring D – the pass rush is still great and the run defense is a rock – is still going to be amazing.

Iowa State was shaky down the stretch, but the passing game finished as the best in the Big 12, the running game is strong, and it plays a little defense, too, finishing tenth in the nation overall and second in the Big 12.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Clemson vs South Carolina Game Preview


Why Clemson Will Win

Very, very, very, very quietly, Clemson is in the mix for yet another ACC Championship – not that this game matters for that – and a double-digit win season.

Not bad considering what a disaster this year has supposedly been.

Remember, this is the only team to play Georgia tough, it took overtime for NC State to pull off the win at home, and the 27-17 win by Pitt that was hardly anything bad was the worst loss by the program in the regular season since 2014.

And now the offense is starting to work.

After clunker game after clunker game, the Tigers have scored 30 or more in each of the last four games – okay, so the final points against Florida State were just wrong, but it was 30 on the scoreboard.

The running game is starting to rumble, the passing attack has gone over 200 yards in each of the last three games, and …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 13

Why South Carolina Will Win

Louisville, UConn, and Wake Forest. When it comes to defenses, the last three Clemson went against are a whole lot of whoopdedoo.

South Carolina might not have a killer D, but it takes away the ball with 23 forced turnovers on the year, and the secondary is third in the SEC in fewest yards allowed. It’s the offensive side, though, that has to come through.

Clemson is No. 1 in the ACC in total defense allowing 318 yards per game. South Carolina is 5-1 this season with coming up with more than 318.

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

What’s Going To Happen

So here’s the Clemson ACC Championship game scenario …

The Tigers already baked their ACC cake with a 6-2 record. They need Wake Forest to lose to Boston College on Saturday morning, and they need North Carolina to beat NC State on Friday. They’re going to go into this game knowing whether or not they’re the Coastal champion or not.

Will that matter in the rivalry game that skipped last year and now appears to be competitive again? Nah, but if there’s no game to play for next week, it’s possible things are coached up a wee bit differently personnel-wise …

Again, nah. Clemson wants to beat South Carolina no matter what. However, this Gamecock team is good enough to pull it off if it can get the offense going early.

It’ll be a close, low-scoring four-quarter battle with the Clemson D getting one final stop to survive.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Wake Forest vs Clemson Game Preview


Why Wake Forest Will Win

Everything is still there for Wake Forest.

With the win over NC State, a spot in the ACC Championship can be locked in with a win this week, or a win over Boston College next week. But there’s more than that. Win out, and at 12-1 the pressure would be on to make the College Football Playoff committee not take a one-loss Power Five conference champion – it has only happened once.

The firepower is every Clemson wish it had.

It doesn’t matter who the Demon Deacons are rolling against, the attack is putting up 400 yards with ease, and it hit 600 yards in three straight games before NC State. Clemson’s defense might be fantastic, but even with a 44-7 win over UConn last week the offense still can’t run all that well and the passing attack hit 300 yards for the first time.

No, the Wake Forest defense isn’t anything great, but any sort of lead might be too much for this Tiger offense to deal with.

But …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

Why Clemson Will Win

The Clemson defense really is that good.

The pass rush and defensive front is the best Wake Forest has faced, Pitt was only able to crank up 27 points even though the passing game worked, and more than anything, the defensive backs are in place to hang with the dangerous Demon Deacon receiving corps that keeps getting deep.

But it’s about the pressure. The idea is to get the ball out of the hands of QB Sam Hartman early, but he likes to hit the deep shot. Clemson’s pass rush should have a say in that.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 11

What’s Going To Happen

By the way, if Clemson wins this it’s in the ACC Championship if Wake Forest loses to Boston College next week and with an NC State loss to either Syracuse or North Carolina. But …

Just how much do you believe in the Clemson defense?

The offense really, really can’t consistently move, but the Wake Forest defense has allowed over 500 yards in five of the last seven games and gave up 482 to NC State last week.

No, Clemson isn’t going to suddenly bust out, but it’ll get just physical enough up front to finally take control of a game – at least a little bit. Wake Forest will hit a few deep shots, but not enough of them to overcome the steady pounding.

Yes, Clemson will finally start generating a few third down conversions.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Clemson vs UConn Game Preview


Why UConn Will Win

It’s not like the Clemson offense is working now that it scored 30 points in back-to-back games.

First, as too many people in the investment world painfully know, the O didn’t get the Tigers up to 30 against Florida State, and there were only 345 yards of total offense against Louisville last week.
UConn isn’t going to score a ton on this Clemson defense, but it hasn’t been bad against the run and it’s been able to hang around here and there throughout the year.

And for what it’s worth, there’s a rest factor. The Huskies haven’t played in almost three weeks, all while Clemson is looking at this as a scrimmage before dealing with Wake Forest. However …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 11

Why Clemson Will Win

For all of Clemson’s problems, a ten-win season is still in the picture. Beating Wake Forest next week would be huge, taking down South Carolina on the road would be massive, and there’s going to be a bowl game.

To do that, the offense still needs a whole lot of work, and that’s what UConn is for. This isn’t going to be a game the Tigers are going to take lightly.

This is the game to get the passing attack going. It’s been brutally inconsistent without enough of a downfield presence, the this is why you pay a team like this to come to your house. You try cranking it up a bit to get ready for the two big games that do matter.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 10

What’s Going To Happen

Jim Mora Jr. isn’t able to do anything with UConn quite yet.

Yeah, Clemson has finally been able to get to 30 points against an FBS team and did it in back-to-back weeks.

UConn would kill to get there – it hasn’t scored more than 28.

Purdue beat the Huskies 49-0, but Vanderbilt had to fight to get out with a 30-28 win. Clemson’s performance will be somewhere in between.

There won’t be any danger, but this isn’t going to be totally smooth. The O will open it up enough to put this away fast, and the D won’t allow much of anything outside of a random score.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Clemson vs Louisville Game Preview


Why Clemson Will Win

Clemson might not have an offense, it’s defense isn’t quite so dominant, there was a historic double-digit loss to Pitt a few weeks ago, and …

Shhhhhhhhhh, Clemson is still in the ACC title hunt.

It needs to win out, NC State has to lose again, and Wake Forest has to come up with a loss along the way – and also has to lose to the Tigers – but looking ahead at the schedules, it’s still possible.

It might not be pretty, or easy, or efficient, but the team keeps on winning enough to stay alive.

It’s still third in the nation in scoring defense, it’s still generating pressure into the backfield, and the O might have found something last week against Florida State with Will Shipley pounding away for 128 yards and two scores.

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 10

Why Louisville Will Win

The wins might not be coming, but the offense is doing the job.

The opener against Ole Miss is the only time the attack failed to get close to 400 yards, and the team has come close to 1,900 total yards over the last four games.

The passing game has been fine, the rushing attack has been fantastic, and it’s all coming from an offensive line that’s holding up well.

The defensive side might not be playing as well, but now it gets that Clemson offense that’s not able to pull away from anyone.

The game will never get out of hand, and the Cardinals have the pop to be in control for long stretches.

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

You know how this works with Clemson.

The offense will be painful for stretches, the defenses will keep this close and do its job, and slowly and surely, there’s a break that turns out to be just enough to get ahead.

Clemson is among the best in the country in red zone defense, and Louisville is among the worst. Clemson will close out its chances with scores, and Louisville won’t.
