By the Stars: N.C. State at Clemson


Third-ranked Clemson takes on the NC State Wolfpack this Saturday after getting a rest during its bye week last weekend.

The recruiting edge Clemson had over Wake Forest two weeks ago was very evident in the 60-point bashing. The running game continues to blossom on the legs of Travis Etienne and the Tigers will see if they can ride that momentum in a tough matchup this week.

As per usual, Clemson has the recruiting edge over N.C. State. While most of this years outcomes have been predicted by the difference in recruiting, the Wolfpack always play the Tigers tough.

Unless quarterback Trevor Lawrence has the magic key to a blowout over Dave Doeren’s squad, this will be a close game that could come down to a last minute drive.
