Clemson vs. Virginia Tech Prediction, Preview, Spread, Channel

The Clemson Tigers and the Virginia Tech Hokies will settle their differences in the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

The comprehension gap between what Tech's offensive players were able to grasp and what its defensive players had already mastered made the mountain that needed to be climbed seem even higher. And we know we have to play extremely well in order to get it close there at the end.

Virginia Tech and Clemson will meet for the first time in four years, and the last time the two saw each other in the title game the roles were reversed.

The Tigers host Virginia Tech and play at Florida State the next two weekends sandwiched around a home game versus Charleston Southern, then Clemson hosts Georgia and Wake Forest the following week.

"I'm definitely proud of our guys", Clemson senior linebacker Ben Boulware said.

The Hokies are led by junior quarterback Jerod Evans on offense.

"My comments to our guys is that we're going to have to play our butts off on defense, because I know our offense is going to have to play their butts off on offense - nothing's going to come easy". But we didn't we didn't do all this work just to get here. "I like the way that we've matured throughout the year, our emotional maturity, our ability to put the previous week behind us and focus on the next week and handle the emotions of big ball games, and I feel good about where we're at now as opposed to Week 2".

Fuente was a finalist for the offensive coordinator position at Clemson back in 2008, a job that ultimately went to current SMU coach Chad Morris. Let's make it about Clemson.

Clemson has one of the best and most accomplished players in college football history pushing the pace of their go-go-go offense: quarterback Deshaun Watson.

"Playing at Tennessee and the Battle at Bristol, we did not play well and I'm not taking anything away from Tennessee", said Fuente.

The Hokies surrender just 21 points per game against opponents.

The stage is set for the Hokies and Clemson Tigers to duke it out for the ACC Championship on Saturday night. You know, don't do anything that's going to be not very smart, in terms of just going out of your rush lane, going up underneath somebody at the line of scrimmage. "We're kind of throwing the whole kitchen sink at this game". We truly believe every game is a championship game.

Last but not least - Hunter Renfrow played in just eight games this season due to injuries, but he still snagged 68 percent of the passes thrown his direction, and collected three touchdowns. Among Power Five conference teams, only MI and Wisconsin have been better at stopping opponents on third down than Virginia Tech.

Of course Frank Beamer was coaching during Tech's last championship game and Swinney said a lot of very nice things about both Beamer and Fuente and said their personalities are similar which makes Fuente a good fit.

He passed for 3,039 yards, the second most in a single season at Tech behind Don Strock's 3,243 yards in 1972, and also owns the school's single-season record for touchdowns accounted for (34).

It's college football's championship weekend, and while most of us will be watching it all from our couches, there are quite a few fans in all corners of the country who will be traveling to places like Atlanta, Indianapolis, Santa Clara and Orlando for the biggest games. It ended up being a sign of things to come for both programs. This year, Wilkins caught a TD pass in Clemson's 30-24 win over Troy in September.

"Shoot, man. Take some ibuprofen before the game", Hokies defensive line coach Charley Wiles joked, anticipating a headache. All of which means if Tech can somehow contain all of Clemson's weapons and pull off an upset, Saturday could end up being the most memorable day of the season for Fuente.
