Clemson and Syracuse both enter this game with undefeated records. The winner will take over sole possession of first place in the ACC Atlantic division.
Clemson enters this game following a convincing road win at Florida State last weekend. Meanwhile, Syracuse defeated NC State at home with an impressive defensive performance.
These two teams have played several close games in recent years. Three of the last 5 meetings have been decided by four points or less. One of those contests was a Syracuse victory — the Orange’s only win in this series since joining the ACC.
Clemson is a consensus 13.5-point favorite in this matchup. This will be Syracuse’s first road ACC game of the season.
Kickoff is at 12:00 p.m. ET on Saturday afternoon.
