For years, Clemson has been recognized as one of the best defensive teams in college football.
While the Tigers had 559 total yards of offense and ate up 37:34 of the possession, Clemson allowed 447 total yards (including 337 through the air) to Wake as quarterback Sam Hartman shredded them with six touchdowns and no interceptions.
If it wasn’t for the play of quarterback DJ Uiagalelei (26-41, 371 yards, 5 TD, 0 INT) and running back Will Shipley (20 carries, 104 yards, TD), that very well could have ended up as a loss for Clemson.
The Tigers will need to clean things up on defense because a date with NC State and standout quarterback Devin Leary is up next.
Take a look at the live odds and best bets for that game below.
