- It was all tied up at the half for Clemson and North Carolina two weeks ago, but Clemson stepped up in the second half. Clemson dodged a bullet, finishing off North Carolina 21-20. QB Trevor Lawrence was slinging it as he accumulated 206 passing yards and picked up 45 yards on the ground on 11 carries.
Meanwhile, Florida State and NC State couldn’t quite live up to the 62.5-point over/under that the experts had forecasted. Florida State took down NC State 31-13. NC State can consider this payback for the 47-28 loss they dealt Florida State the last time the teams encountered one another November of last year.
Their wins bumped Clemson to 5-0 and Florida State to 3-2. A couple defensive stats to keep an eye on: The Tigers rank fourth in the league when it comes to passing yards allowed per game, with only 150.4 on average. On the other end of the spectrum, the Seminoles are 10th worst in the nation in passing yards allowed per game, with 302.2 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against the Seminoles.
