Before I get my weekend picks up for Week 4 of College Football. I wanted to do a quick pick-em for tonight’s Clemson vs Georgia Tech game. Both teams come into tonight’s game at 3-0. Tech coming off a blowout win over Vandy and Clemson doing the same to South Carolina State. Tonight will be a clash of two teams that don’t really like each other. They have a underrated ACC rivalry going on. A few years ago, the Clemson Tigers were ACC Championship contenders and were picked by some to be a dark horse to contend for the National Championship. With a undefeated record and a high scoring offense, the Tigers were becoming a national favorite. The Georgia Tech team that played the Tigers that year was a sub .500 team and with a slight chance of making a bowl. The Tigers were heavy favorites in that game and played like a team that knew they could win. Clemson, on that night were shocked by the Jackets, beating the them 31-17. Tech also wanted that game and took it. Clemson wanted to win but Tech did win.
Tonight can be the blueprint of years past. A well hyped Clemson team facing off against a below the radar Georgia Tech team. Tonight, it won’t happen! Tigers in this one!
#5 Clemson Tigers (-6) (3-0) @ Georgia Tech (3-0)
This game will a classic Clemson verse GT match-up. Look for the game to be close early with Watson leading the Tigers to a two score win. Take Clemson and the points.
