Clemson (7-0, 4-0 ACC) has opened up on Sunday as a 9.5 point favorite against North Carolina State (5-2, 1-2 ACC).

Update: Clemson is now a 10.5 point favorite with early betting on Sunday.

The ACC Halloween contest will be played at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina at 3:30 p.m. EST on ABC, ESPN2.

The Tigers have won 10 consecutive games for the first time since the 1983-84 seasons.
