The ACC has never seen this.
No, Notre Dame is not the only one playing as a conference member this season. It’s about rankings.
For Clemson Athletics, Saturday No. 1 Clemson vs. No. 4 Notre Dame game is the highest ranking among ACC teams. As always.
Saturday night’s game has been exaggerated for a long time, and both teams have won every game this season. Of course, Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence tested positive for COVID-19 and experienced symptoms. So the game will not be as many expected.
DJ Uyagaleli introduced the good news to the LTTE at the top. With Clemson down 18 points, Uyagaleli helped his team to a 34-28 lead. He crossed 342 yards and finished with two touchdowns and 25 rushing yards and one touchdown.
Travis Etienne has hit the ball 27 times (20 rushes, seven catches) and will be asked to do a lot against the Irish, especially on the road and against a poor defense. During last week’s win he also became the ACC’s all-time leading Russian.
Although Clemson striker James Skolsky will also be out, the Tigers’ defense knows what it has to do: let Ian Book beat them. Notre Dame had a consistent offense, throwing the book up to 204 yards per game. But the Irish knife wants to find an edge in the lineup – they average 5.1 quick yards per attempt.
Senior book has experience, but can Notre Dame overcome those obstacles? Two years ago, Clemson defeated the Irish 30-3 in the semifinals of the college football playoffs.
Despite all the excitement of going into the game and the possible consequences after that, there is one more thing to think about.
The two could easily meet again in the ACC Championship game for round 2 next month.
