After four weeks of playing over-matched opponents, the Clemson Tigers feel that Boston College will give them their first real challenge in more than a month.
A win for Clemson Saturday will earn them a fourth straight spot in the ACC Championship Game, and will play for an unprecedented fourth consecutive ACC Title on December 1st in Charlotte.
To get there they have to get through a team that took them to the fourth quarter in a hotly-contested game at Death Valley last year with Boston College.
One player knows all too well how much the Eagles can play the role of the spoiler with Massachusetts native Christian Wilkins, who grew up a BC fan as child. While he’s rid himself of any personal attachment to the Eagles, it will mean wonders to him if he can clinch the ACC Atlantic crown in front of an expected large crowd of friends and family:

Clemson’s Hunter Renfrow, who had six catches for 53 yards last year against the Eagles believes that Boston College can present the most legitimate threat to a Tigers’ perfect season.
He has confidence, however, his team will continue to run on all cylinders:

Tigers’ QB Trevor Lawrence continues to revel in the new experiences he’s going through in his first collegiate season, and said this week he’s looking forward to the challenging atmosphere Chestnut Hill will bring Saturday:

Boston College’s success is largely tied to the status of running back and preseason ACC Player of the Year AJ Dillon, listed as a game-time decision this week by Eagles Coach Steve Addazio. Clemson Defensive Coordinator Brent Venables is preparing for whatever scenario his unit will face Saturday night:
