Top ranked Clemson and seventh-ranked Miami will face off Saturday night at Death Valley, and this could be the game of the year in the ACC. There is still the Clemson at Notre Dame game in November. Plus, North Carolina will finish its regular season with Notre Dame and Miami. But this week’s game appears on paper to be the greatest threat to Clemson’s ACC dominance since the Louisville game of 2016. Now, Clemson has had some unexpected losses and close wins over the last four-plus seasons, but his is a matchup that looks the part of a threat despite the two touchdown favorites status for the Tigers.
This week we heard from offensive coordinator Tony Elliott, defensive coordinator Brent Venables and several players as part of the build-up to the 7:30 PM kickoff on ABC.
