Clemson Betting Outlook
Clemson, the last unbeaten team in the ACC, needed a second-half rally behind reserve freshman quarterback Cade Klubnik to beat Syracuse two weeks ago. Regardless, DJ Uiagalelei remains the starter.
With the Tigers losing 21-10, coach Dabo Swinney went with Klubnik to start the second half. Clemson outscored Syracuse 17-0 in the final two quarters while holding the Orange to 119 total yards.

Klubnik, a five-star recruit, had minimal impact. He completed two of four passes for 19 yards while Clemson relied on its rushing game.
Will Shipley had 172 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in 27 carries, including a go-ahead 50-yard score with 11:26 left. Shipley has 739 yards and 10 TDs in 123 attempts this season and is third in the ACC in both yardage and scores.
Shipley has Heisman Trophy odds of +10000.
Uiagalelei had a rough time against Syracuse as he was intercepted twice – as many as he had in the first seven games of the season — and lost a fumble. However, Uiagalelei is third in the conference in touchdown passes (17) and fifth in passing yards (1,803) with a 63.8% completion rate.

Clemson vs Notre Dame Prediction
Clemson leads the all-time series 4-2 and won the last meeting 34-10 in the 2020 ACC Championship Game. Notre Dame, who was an ACC member for one year only during the pandemic-altered season, got five catches for 51 yards from Mayer in that game.
Clemson has a clear path to the College Football Playoff, but Notre Dame could trip the Tigers up now that it has its season on track.
Pick: Notre Dame +4 (-110)
