College Football Week 13: #13 South Carolina At #12 Clemson

South Carolina
South Carolina vs. Arkansas
North Carolina State v Clemson
Winner South Carolina has won three straight in this series. It will take a great effort in Death Valley to make it four in a row.
The Tigers are on a great roll, dominating every team on its schedule since a September loss to Florida State. This is the first ranked team they’ve played since then.
South Carolina’s offense has been inconsistent this season. Senior Kenny Miles got the majority of the carries last week and rushed for 127 yards in place of the injured Marcus Lattimore.
Winner This is one of the better offenses in the country. Tajh Boyd is the second-highest rated passer in the nation.
Winner The Gamecocks are 12th in the nation in yards per play allowed. Clemson will provide a huge challenge but SC will try to get after Boyd.
The defense has not been as good as hoped entering the season, giving up 5.77 yards per play.
Special Teams
The Gamecocks have been inconsistent on special teams this season.
Winner Clemson ranks 13th overall in special teams play according to Football Outsiders.

The Winner Is

North Carolina State v Clemson
Winner Clemson
2 out of 4

These coaches have been sniping at each other through the media since last year’s game. This could go either way, but Clemson’s offensive firepower may be too much at home.
