Phil Steele's prediction on Clemson-Wake
Last year CU had one of its best comebacks in program history (down 28-14) to clinch the Atlantic Title and did so even with WR Watkins out the 2H with injury as they nailed a 43 yard FG with no time left for the 31-28 win. CU had a 522-317 yard edge. The Tigers come in with only 5 days rest off their 38-17 win over Virginia Tech and traveling while Wake is also off 5 days rest after last week’s 16-10 win over Virginia. The Tigers are averaging a solid 510 ypg on the road this year, while the Deacons are allowing 420 ypg at home. While the home tm is 8-2 in the series and the situational edge favors Wake Forest, Clemson has a huge edge on offense (#11-107) and ST’s (#28-111) and should win comfortably again away from home.
