Default Besides the big four

Besides the Auburn, Louisville, VT and FSU games, which game do you see presenting the biggest challenge to Clemson?

NCSt. While typically not a top team, NCSt seems to always give Clemson a very tough time. Playing in Raleigh this year after losing to Clemson on a missed FG, NCSt will be focused on revenge and have confidence they can win. While Clemson should win easily, NCSt cannot be take for granted.

I agree with NCSU being the next toughest however Cuse should be more improved and we shouldn't take them lightly either.

I also agree on NC State


I kinda get what you are saying about Syracuse but they have some really significant problems.

Their QB is made of glass and has missed significant time in both of his seasons.

Their defensive roster simply doesn't meet the needs of their scheme.

They have absolutely no running game so it's easy to make them one dimensional.

Their OL is so bad it would make most Bowden-era OLs look like the famed Fordham "Seven Blocks of Granite".

Well we do have to play at Syracuse where it is so hot and loud ����
And of course many chicken fans are already saying we will get payback for last year's beat down.

I think NCSU is the toughest outside of FSU, Auburn, and UL. They return the bulk of thier starters (17) and we go there (where we have had trouble in the past). We all know they want payback for how last year's game ended.

My vote goes to GaTech... Even though they lose QB Justin Thomas they still return 14 starters this coming year, which is the most of any team in the ACC... Mix that in with the always pesky triple option offense and they'll be a tough out, even playing them in the Valley

Normally I'd agree with you but with our defensive line I'm not worried about GT anymore
