ESPN announces guest picker for College GameDay at Clemson-NC State
Former Clemson defensive lineman Christian Wilkins will serve as the guest picker on Saturday’s episode of College GameDay.
That announcement was made on Friday afternoon:
WELCOME BACK, @cwilkins42!
— Clemson Athletics (@ClemsonTigers) September 30, 2022
Wilkins played for Clemson from 2015-18. He recorded a career-high 14.5 tackles for loss and 5.5 tackles for loss as a senior in 2018. Wilkins now plays for the Miami Dolphins, who played on Thursday Night Football this week.
Clemson is favored by a touchdown in this game, which will have major implications on the race for the ACC Atlantic title. Both NC State and Clemson enter this game with a 4-0 record.
However, this will be the first ACC game of the season for the Wolfpack. NC State’s only game vs. a Power 5 opponent this season was against Texas Tech back in Week 3.
Clemson’s defense will be looking to rebound from a rough performance in Week 4. The Tigers gave up 45 points and 6 touchdown passes to Wake Forest in an overtime win in Winston-Salem.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. ET on Saturday night.
