ACC Top Letdown Games for Every Team: 2022 College Football Season

ACC letdown games – the date on every team’s college football schedule that might be dangerous.

What game on every ACC team’s schedule might cause some trouble? Each team should win these games, but focus, interest, and big games before and/or after could be a problem in these letdown dates.

NFL Draft Best Picks of All-Time From Every ACC School

Who are the ACC’s greatest NFL Draft picks of all-time? Here are the top three best picks from each ACC program.

Who are the best NFL Draft picks from every ACC program? Which players turned into the greatest stars at the next level?


The ACC takes a backseat to no one when it comes to NFL draft bragging rights from its current programs.

The bulk players might not be there like it is from the SEC and the Big Ten, but you want high-end talent?

From Dan Marino to Jim Brown, and from Lawrence Taylor to Derrick Brooks to Aaron Donald, there’s a lot for the ACC to chirp about.

This isn’t a list of the top pro players to come from the ACC schools – these are the best draft picks.

Players who had great careers for teams other than the ones that drafted them don’t get enough credit, or aren’t on the list at all.

The goal for any draft pick is to get a player who performs at a high level for a long period of time, so longevity matters over one short burst of greatness.

ACC spring football rankings and predictions with best and worst case scenarios for every team

ACC college football rankings and predictions with the realistic best and worst case records and quick analysis – the 2022 spring version.


[mm-video type=playlist id=01f1343a1wt7q817p7 player_id=none image=https://collegefootballnews.com/wp-content/plugins/mm-video/images/playlist-icon.png]

It’s going to be one of the craziest offseasons yet with the transfer portal, a whole lot of big transitions, and several key teams needing to do a whole lot of work.

Before diving into the nuts and bolts of each team with our team-by-team Preview 2022, here’s the spring version quick look, prediction, and ranking of each ACC team.

Don’t get into any sort of a twist with these ACC rankings – you could take about ten of the teams, mix them up in any order, and you’ll probably be right.

Seriously, if you want to swap 11 and 12 on this with, say, 4 and 5, go for it – that’s how even this league should be. If you thought last year was weird in the conference, just wait.

The rankings are based on how good the teams should be and not the final projected records. Keeping in mind that this all could/might/will change when we make the final calls in August …

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Clemson vs NC State Game Preview, ACC Conference Tournament


Why Clemson Will Win

Clemson is playing well.

It collapsed in February in a rough run of six straight losses, but it bounced back better with four straight wins to maybe salvage its season if it can come up with a good weekend.

What happened and how have things improved?

The defense has turned it up a few notches. It didn’t allow fewer than 69 points in any game over a few weeks, and then it didn’t give up more than that over the last two weeks.

The rebounding has been great and the defense from three has been as strong as it’s been all year, and the timing is great because …

– Latest Polls AP | Coaches

Why NC State Will Win

NC State isn’t playing well, but here come the threes.

Wake Forest is the only team in the ACC that showed more from beyond the arc, and it’s a strength in numbers thing. The Wolfpack are okay from the outside, but it’s more about the sheer quantity of shots – they’ve made 61 in the last six games.

They’ll work outside, but Clemson doesn’t have too much an interior presence – there aren’t any blocks – and the D as a whole doesn’t put enough pressure on the guards and doesn’t force enough mistakes, but …

Clemson vs NC State: What’s Going To Happen

Can NC State find something positive over a miserable season with a win to get another game to play? It’ll be feisty.

The problem is the defense that’s getting rocked by everyone. The Pack have allowed teams to hit 50% of their shots or more in eight of the last ten games, and now it’s Clemson’s turn to have some fun.

The Tigers will have to battle through a tough first 30 minutes, but the last ten will start to swing their way as the Pack D breaks down over and over again.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Duke vs Clemson Game Preview


Why Duke Will Win

You don’t think Duke is a wee bit peeved?

It struggled against Clemson a few weeks ago in a 71-69 win, and then came a dominant three-game run including a blowout at North Carolina. And then …

Pffffft. All of the air came out of the balloon as it lost at home to an okay Virginia.

In the first game against the Tigers, the Blue Devils weren’t great, but they were fantastic from three and withstood a big shooting day to get out alive. They also did a great job of not fouling – Clemson only had one free throw attempt.

Expect a wee bit more aggressive Duke team than the one that showed up against Virginia.

– Latest Polls AP | Coaches

Why Clemson Will Win

So what did Virginia do right?

It was strong on the offensive glass, forced several key turnovers, and was able to control the game just enough with its style.

Clemson has to be far better on the boards to take this.

It’s good on the defensive glass, but it was able to stay with Duke because of 14 offensive rebounds – that was hardly the norm.

The Tigers are way too inconsistent and need to make up for it with second chance points. They basically have to play the way they did the first time around, and be more aggressive and get to the free throw line once in a while.

At least lately, when they get to the line, they’re making their shots.

Top 25 Game Previews, Predictions

What’s Going To Happen

Don’t read too much into the Virginia loss.

It was a letdown game after North Carolina, Virginia went Virginia with its style, and it was still a one-point defeat.

Clemson will be strong at home to keep this close for about a half, but Duke will wake up, the outside shooting will kick in, and the defense will be air-tight from three after getting bombed on the first time around.

Clemson Football Schedule What To Know: Who do the Tigers miss from the Coastal Division?

The Tigers start the season out in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at Georgia Tech, and they host Miami in their ACC regular season finale. Those are the two games against the Coastal Division, which means they don’t get the layup against Duke. On the plus side, they miss North Carolina, Pitt, Virginia, and Virginia Tech.

Clemson Football Schedule What To Know: It only seems like the Tigers aren’t hanging around home

Here’s the positive. Clemson gets a run of three home games in four weeks early, and the final three games are in Death Valley.

Here’s the other side of that. After hosting NC State on October 1st, it only has one home games – Syracuse on October 22nd – until November 12th. That includes dates at Florida State and Notre Dame.

Clemson Football Schedule What To Know: What does it all really mean?

It’s not a bad slate.

Going to Notre Dame is tough, but there’s a week off to get ready for it. Other than that, the non-conference games against Furman and Louisiana Tech aren’t bad, and the South Carolina game is at home.

Unless some ACC team rises up and surprises – or if Clemson falls off the map – the only realistic chances to possibly be an underdog should be at Notre Dame and against South Carolina.

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.
