Clemson on ESPN's upset alert vs. Georgia Tech
ESPN has released its latest upset alerts on Tuesday afternoon and Clemson is on the list with its tough Thursday night game against a tricky Georgia Tech team.
"Clemson has not won in Atlanta since 2003. That stat alone is enough to put the Tigers on upset watch," ESPN said. "Factor in a looming game against No. 3 Louisville, and there is just no way this team can afford to overlook the Jackets. Crazy things always seem to happen in Atlanta. Take the last meeting in 2014. Deshaun Watson got hurt early, and Cole Stoudt threw three interceptions -- including pick-sixes. Clemson finished with 190 yards of offense. Watson had a rebound performance against South Carolina State last week, but Georgia Tech offers a much bigger test -- on a short week, no less."
Clemson is currently 3-0 on the season and favored by 9.5 points against the Yellow Jackets.
