    Clemson vs Pitt

    Pitt is not reflected in their schedule as their losses are to top twenty ranked Penn, UCF, and ND.
    They beat the others including some very good ACC teams.
    They won their way into the ACC Championship game over preseason picks by experts. They play tough.

    How will it go against my Tigers?
    Pitt runs the ball.

    Their QB is pro style Kenny Pickett who is excellent at that.
    He will not loose the game for them.

    They no longer have a Tony Dorsett, but who does? They average 232 yards a game at 5.8 a carry. It is a fact that if you can run 3 yards on every down you will win every game.

    The weak part of Clemson is the secondary. Teams who can pass are a terror.
    Pitt is not that.

    The Tiger defense against the run is very, very good.

    Pitt is not yet known as to a passing attack. Running against Clemson to win would seem to be folly.
    I wonder where their points will come from.

    The Pitt "D" held ND to 19 and even GT to 19. If they can hold the Tigers to 19, can they score 20?
    I don't think they can.

    ESPN expert an exGeorgia All American David Pollack:

    “What does Pitt do well? Run the football. Clemson is one of the best in the country at that – the second best in the country at that. Pitt doesn’t throw the ball well. I think, if you’re going to beat Clemson, it’s through the air. In that secondary, I think there’s some vulnerabilities. The defensive line? That’s not how you’re going to beat Clemson, by lining up and pounding them. So, good luck.”
