North Carolina and Clemson meet at the Bank of America Stadium this Saturday with the ACC championship on the line. There hasn’t been many upsets when these two teams clash, as the favorite is 4-0 ATS in the past four meetings between the Tigers and Tar Heels.
Sure, UNC lost to South Carolina and have beaten two FCS opponents, but the Tar Heels have been hard to ignore on the field. North Carolina ranks in the top 20 in the nation in rushing yards, points and points allowed. Sophomore running back Elijah Wood has been setting the world on-fire, as he has rushed for 536 yards and eight touchdowns in the past four games.
Clemson is 12-0 for the first time since they won the national championship in 1981. The Tigers have been one of the best all-around teams in the nation this season with the offense ranking 14th and their defense eighth. Clemson also has a legitimate Heisman-candidate in Deshaun Watson who has thrown for 27 touchdowns while adding nine with his feet.
