What’s at stake

Despite coming away with the win over Georgia Tech, Clemson’s offense sputtered and fumbled the ball four times. With the group working to improve, there’s no better test than going into a hostile environment.

For N.C. State, it’s all about using the momentum built from last week’s 45-7 win over Furman as the team starts ACC play.

Clemson vs NC State betting line

The Tigers opened as a 12-point favorite. That settled to a 10-point spread in favor of Clemson, according to VegasInsider.

North Carolina State players to watch

Devin Leary, QB: Devin Leary has totaled 794 passing yards with two interceptions and six touchdowns over three games, helping the offense average 274 passing yards per game. He threw for 259 yards and three touchdowns against Furman.

Zonovan Knight, RB: Even with Leary, the Wolfpack don’t have to throw if it doesn’t want to because of Zonovan Knight. The sophomore is averaging 8.5 yards per carry on the year and has reached the end zone twice.

Drake Thomas, LB: A 10-game starter from a year ago, Drake Thomas is currently N.C. State’s leading tackler with 25 and had a season high of 10 against Mississippi State in Week Two.

Clemson is winning. Why it’s just not enough for an offense that’s used to much more

Clemson players to watch

LaVonta Bentley, LB: LaVonta Bentley found out he was getting his first career start less than 10 minutes before kickoff and capitalized on the opportunity. He led Clemson in tackles with 13, likely earning himself another start should Spector still have trouble with his knee this week.

Will Shipley, RB: As the Tigers’ leading rusher after three games, Will Shipley has earned the right to be RB1. He’ll make his first start in familiar territory at Carter-Finley Stadium, where he won a state title as a junior at Weddington High School.

Ruke Orhorhoro, DT: With Tyler Davis out, Ruke Orhorhoro will step up in his place for his second career start. He’s made 13 tackles, three for loss, in three games played this season.
