Clemson on ESPN's Upset Watch for Week 6

Vegas oddsmakers currently have Clemson as a seven-point favorite over Georgia Tech in Death Valley on Saturday afternoon.

However, ESPN has Clemson on upset watch for Week 6 against the Yellow Jackets.

"Not many predicted the Jackets would be sliding fast through five weeks, but it is hard to count out any Paul Johnson-coached team," ESPN said. "Especially on Saturday. It will not be an easy one for the Tigers after going down to the wire last week in a draining win over Notre Dame. The majority of the Tigers' defensive starters played 65 snaps or more, including defensive ends Kevin DoddKevin Dodd

(72). Those numbers are exceptionally high to begin with; now add in an offense that is run driven and these players will be relied on even more Saturday. We saw Clemson get tired in the fourth quarter against Notre Dame and nearly blow the game. Preparing for Georgia Tech after an emotional win makes this game even more difficult than it already is. It goes without saying: The Tigers need to avoid a letdown in a game it should win, especially with a College Football Playoff spot there for the taking."

Georgia Tech leads the series 51-27-2 but Clemson has won the last three games played at Clemson.

The Tigers currently have a 12-game winning streak in Death Valley and with one more win will tie the school record.
