Prediction:
This matchup is even across the board, so we’ll go with the team that has had the most success over the years in this series and that’s Clemson. They’ve won 11 of the past 16 meetings between these two teams and we like that considering they’re getting points. Wake might have the home field advantage and is coming off a bye, but the Deacons loss to Navy two weeks ago might have exposed some weaknesses. We predict Clemson over Wake 23-20.
