South Carolina vs Clemson Final NCAA Football Analysis

Clemson has looked impressive, but the Tigers have dominated fellow ACC teams. That’s not the South Carolina Gamecocks. The Gamecocks aren’t your average SEC squad. Hanging with opponents like Florida on the road’s not the same as beating a down on their luck Florida State team.

The Tigers should win, but they’ll have a desperate time to cover the spread. In Week 12, Clemson didn’t cover against Duke primarily because the spread was just too high. The Tigers dominated. They just didn’t win by as many as their backers had hoped. The same thing should happen in Week 13.
