Clemson Looks For 21st Consecutive Home Win

Clemson may have the best home-field advantage in college football at the moment, as the Tigers have won 20 straight games in Death Valley. Many of those games have been blowouts as well, as Clemson has beaten opponents by at least two touchdowns in 13 of those 20 games. The Tigers look to continue their home dominance when they host the Syracuse Orange on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Though Clemson is 20-0 SU in its past 20 home games, it is just 11-9 ATS.
  • Syracuse is 3-1 ATS in its last 4 games against Clemson.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Syracuse's last 9 games.

Clemson is one of only five FBS teams with an undefeated record and may have the easiest path to remain perfect. Deshaun Watson has faced three of Clemson’s four remaining opponents in his collegiate career – only Pitt has yet to face him – with the quarterback posting a 71.8 completion percentage with 990 passing yards and a combined 11 touchdowns.

Syracuse’s offense has been unstoppable recently, as the Orange have combined for 1093 yards, 55 first downs and 59 points in their past two outings. Quarterback Eric Dungey has been fantastic, as he has thrown for 745 yards and four touchdowns while rushing for 160 yards in the past two.
