College Football Week 12: NC State At #11 Clemson
|Tom O’Brien has North Carolina State bowl eligible. And the win over Florida State was perhaps the biggest upset of the season.||Coaching||Clemson’s only loss so far was to Florida State, the No. 1 team in the country in offense and defense. A win here and against South Carolina next week and Dabo Swinney and the Tigers are probably looking at a second straight BCS bowl bid.|
|The Wolfpack have struggled offensively all season, though a 428-yard performance against Wake Forest last week gives some hope.||Offense||This offense has been consistently great all season, averaging 43 points per game, sixth best in the country.|
|Bend but don’t break has been the Wolfpack’s motto on defense, but it might be hard not to break against an explosive Clemson team.||Defense||This unit has been serviceable, if not special. Given the schedule, the defense wasn’t really tested much this season.|
|Tobais Palmer returned a kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown last week. Across the board, the Wolfpack has been mediocre on special teams.||Special Teams||The Tigers muffed a punt last week, but generally speaking they’ve been excellent on special teams.|
