All four Athlon writers predict that Clemson will win by a large margin over the vegas odds of 14.

After an 0-2 start, Syracuse has rebounded with back-to-back wins. Beating Wagner and Tulane isn’t going to wow most around in the ACC, but the Orange have some momentum entering this game. Syracuse’s offense found a spark behind quarterback Terrel Hunt, who completed 31 of 39 throws for 446 yards and seven scores in his first two starts. Hunt faces a tougher test in the ACC opener for the Orange, as Clemson is holding opponents to 17.2 points a game and has one of the conference’s most-active defensive lines (15 sacks). Hunt’s mobility is an x-factor for Syracuse, especially if he can avoid the Tigers’ pass rush and make plays downfield in the passing game. The Orange would prefer not to get in a shootout with Clemson, but it will be hard to keep the Tigers’ offense (43 ppg) under wraps. Syracuse’s secondary struggled in the first four games, allowing opposing quarterbacks to complete 63.1 percent of their throws.
