Last Meeting

In 2017, Clemson beat visiting Georgia Tech 24-10. Kelly Bryant threw for 207 yards and two scores. The Yellow Jackets entered leading the ACC in rushing yardage but left with only 198 yards on the ground — 175 fewer than they were averaging. The Tigers had 11 tackles for loss. TaQuon Marshall, the ACC’s leading rusher with a 117-yard average, managed just 23 yards that included his 22-yard TD run in the fourth quarter. Georgia Tech had fewest punts in the ACC entering the game at 21 through six games. The Yellow Jackets punted nine times at Clemson.

Why Bet on Clemson?

The Tigers had a glorified scrimmage last week in beating Georgia Southern 38-7 to improve to 3-0. Offensively, Clemson was sparked by Travis Etienne, who ran for 162 yards on 16 carries with two touchdowns, and Trevor Lawrence, who was 12-19 for 194 yards and a score. Justyn Ross also topped the 100-yard mark, totaling 103 yards and adding a touchdown on three catches. Defensively, the Tigers held Georgia Southern scoreless through three quarters, limiting the Eagle offense to just 30 yards in the entire first half. Tre Lamar led the team with 11 total tackles, Clelin Ferrell contributed a team-high 2.5 tackles for loss and two sacks, and Austin Bryant matched Ferrell’s two sacks. Clemson has now won 46 of its last 50 games and is 3-0 for the four straight years and for the seventh time in the last eight years. Clemson extended its winning streak in non-conference regular season play to 18 games. Clemson won its 10th consecutive game at Memorial Stadium, dating back to a 56-7 win against South Carolina on Nov. 25, 2016. The team’s current home winning streak is Clemson’s third double-digit home winning streak in Dabo Swinney’s tenure as head coach. The Tigers have won 19 straight Saturday games, the longest of any Power Five school in the country. It is the second-longest Saturday winning streak in school history, trailing a 21-game Saturday streak across the 2014-16 campaigns. Clemson won its 16th consecutive game in the month of September, dating back to 2014. Clemson led 24-0 after three quarters and is now 76-2 since 2011 when leading after three quarters. Clemson recorded a 27-3 advantage in total first downs and is now 76-2 record when recording more first downs than its opponent since 2011. The Tigers have won 58 straight games when holding teams under 23 points (dating back to 2010).

Why Bet on Georgia Tech?

The Jackets (1-2) opened ACC play with a 24-19 loss at Pittsburgh last week. The Panthers (2-1, 1-0 ACC) built a 21-point advantage off three unanswered touchdowns in the first half, two of which came from running back Qadree Ollison. Georgia Tech was held scoreless in the opening half of a game for the first time since it didn’t score in the first half of a 26-7 loss to Clemson on Sept. 22, 2016. A week after rolling up 602 yards in a loss to South Florida, the Yellow Jackets managed just 386 against the Panthers, 99 of it coming on a last-gasp drive in the final minutes. The Yellow Jackets did little in the first half when six of their seven drives lasted five plays or less. Clemson vs Georgia Tech should be an easy one for the Tigers. TaQuon Marshall scored on a pair of short touchdown runs in the second half and finished with a team-high 103 yards rushing. He struggled through the air, completing just one pass until Georgia Tech’s final drive. Marshall ended up 6 of 15 for 66 yards and an interception. Georgia Tech finished with 386 yards of offense with 320 rushing yards. Georgia Tech dropped its seventh-straight game away from Bobby Dodd Stadium and its sixth-straight true road game. The Yellow Jackets have not won away from Bobby Dodd Stadium since a 33-18 win over Kentucky in the 2016 TaxSlayer Bowl (Dec. 31, 2016) and have not won a true road game since a 28-27 win at Georgia (Nov. 26, 2016). Georgia Tech leads the all-time series with Clemson, 50-30-2, including a 44-14-2 advantage in games played in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets’ dominance over the Tigers at home includes wins in five of the last six matchups played at Bobby Dodd Stadium. Clemson is the highest-ranked opponent to visit Bobby Dodd Stadium since Sept. 9, 2000, when No. 2 Florida State escaped with a 26-21 victory over the Jackets.
