Overview: The Terriers dropped their first two games before reeling off five straight victories to enter Death Valley at 5-2. Most of Wofford’s statistics aren’t relevant for this game as the mismatch is just too great. The Terriers are in their second year of the new regime after legendary coach Mike Ayers retired in 2017 after 29 years at Wofford. They still run the triple option, but they are more multiple than Georgia Tech was, and they operate out of the shotgun instead of the flexbone.
Talent: Wofford has no players on The Draft Network’s 2020 Prospect Big Board. Senior guard Justus Basinger was a coaches’ first team SoCon selection last year, and senior kicker-punter Luke Carter was a second team selection.
Oddshark: Clemson is favored by 46.5 points, and 71% of the bets are on the over. The over/under is 58, with 58% of bettors taking the over. Oddshark’s projected score is Clemson 63.4 Wofford 0.4.
William’s Take: Clemson should easily handle Wofford due to their strong form and talent differential. This isn’t a reflection on Wofford as a program, but more so the realities of Clemson’s stature in college football. Some FCS games are interesting in the first half before the powerhouse program pulls away in the second half (Clemson Wofford 2011 – Clemson escaped with a win), but there is only a slim chance of that tomorrow. Predicted Score: Clemson 69 Wofford 0
