Clemson’s once promising is suddenly in fairly dire straits. A lot can change in a month. Yes, the Tigers can clinch their first ACC title since 1991 Saturday, but there aren’t many that expect them to do so against a Virginia Tech squad that has rolled to 11 wins this season. The Hokies only setback this year is a 23-3 home loss to a Clemson team that was playing in different stratosphere then the one we saw get pummeled by USC Saturday night. The Hokies are a 7.5 point favorite Saturday night.
Tigers have dropped three of their past four games, the last two of which were blowouts. The 8-0 start and visions a potential BCS title game run has quickly morphed to the very real possibility this team could finish the year on a four game skid.
Clemson offensive lineman Landon Walker and tight end Dwayne Allen both agree the one way to flush all of the bad memories of the past few weeks is to take home an ACC title this weekend and punch a ticket to the Orange Bowl next month.
Take a listen to Walker’s and Allen’s interviews below.
