We need to be able to run it enough to open up the passing or vice versa, doesnt matter, pick your poison.

Not worried about the defensive end. Still thinking the score will be in the 50's for us and teens for them.

TL throw early and often. Oh and win the TO battle.

Play to our abilities and not play down to theirs.



BC is a good team but they aren't Clemson good.

No injuries and Clemson wins. That's my key.

Turnovers are about the only thing that could keep any of the remaining regular season opponents in the game. Clemson's D is too good to give up more than a few long TD drives, and the O is too good not to score more TDs than the D will give up! It would take several major miscues to give the other team multiple quick/easy scores. Cold/nasty weather could possibly work in BCs favor this weekend, but I don't see it causing enough issues to result in an upset.

+1, Finley threw for a lot of yardage against them.

Limiting turnovers and injuries (not necessarily in that order) are my biggest keys.

Get off the bus without twisting an ankle or straining a hamstring.

Win the line of scrimmage when we are on D, those 3 TE groups (13 groups) are going to be one helluva pile of humanity to move even with our D-line, and AJ Dillon is a load coming out of the backfield. That dude weighs more than most of our LBs. Shut down the run, we win. If they can keep the ball away from us (they have to score of course) and limit TL's possessions, it could be a competitive game.
