College Football Week 10: #10 Clemson At Duke
|After the loss to Florida State, many forgot about Clemson, but this team has dominated most everyone on its schedule and still has a shot at reaching the ACC title game. Dabo Swinney has done a great job.||Coaching||David Cutcliffe’s team has exceeded all expectations, but even getting two wins in these last three games might be asking too much.|
|Clemson’s offense has been consistently above-average all season. Andre Ellington, and not Sammy Watkins, has been Tahj Boyd’s favorite target.||Offense||Duke couldn’t do anything against Florida State, which has been the theme for the Blue Devils against the elite teams.|
|Clemson’s schedule hasn’t exposed its sub-par defense very often. The Tigers’ defense needs to improve if the program is going to take the next step, but it likely won’t cost them another ACC game.||Defense||There is little doubt that Clemson will have success against Duke’s porous defense. FSU, which has a similar offense to Clemson, rolled up 560 yards last week against the Blue Devils.|
|Clemson does everything well as far as special teams. The Tigers are seventh in special teams efficiency.||Special Teams||Duke’s special teams have been decent. Freshman Ross Martin is 14 for 16 on field goals.|
