After nearly 4 weeks of talk about football and fall camp, football is finally back. Clemson hosts Georgia Tech in the season and ACC opener for both teams. To make things even more annoying Clemson has been roped into the dog and pony show of hosting a Thursday night home game to kick off the ACC Network’s coverage of live football.
As for the game itself, Clemson is favored by around 5 touchdowns and it isn’t hard to see why. The Yellow Jackets are moving on from Paul Johnson’s triple option offense and this year is going to be difficult. Frankly Clemson shouldn’t have any problems beating GT this year. But even for Clemson there are some things to look at. In particular the defensive line and the TE position could be interesting. Suspensions and graduation have left huge holes at both positions heading into the season.
Kickoff for this one is at 8:00pm EST on the ACC Network. If you don’t get it with your local cable package check out a free trial of the streaming services Playstation Vue or Youtube TV, both should have the network on.
