Statistical Score Estimate vs. Clemson (2.0)

Clemson Game

Let's hope this prediction goes a little bit better than the last time I tried to do this for Clemson. A 35-17 victory was predicted last time and it couldn't have been farther from the truth. We have a full season of averages to work with this time and Excel likes the Hokies by nearly 7 points still. Again, that's predicted because their awful run defense should be shredded up by DW, but that's all predicated on providing offensive balance with LT3.
