Tennessee Volunteers vs Clemson Tigers Predictions 12/30/2022


A change was made at the most crucial position after Clemson faltered at the end of the season, losing to South Carolina 31-30.


For the ACC Championship match against No. 23 North Carolina, which the Tigers dominated 39-10, QB Cade Klubnik took over for DJ Uiagalelei.


After that, injuries and the transfer portal cost them a number of important players. Most significantly, Myles Murphy (11 tackles for loss) and Trenton Simpson won’t be there for the defense (72 tackles).


In the ACC Championship, Clemson had 385 total offensive yards compared to 386 for North Carolina, but their defense had 2 interceptions and recovered a fumble. They covered the -7 spread as a consequence, and the total fell below 64.


This year, the Tigers were a well-rounded club. They are in the top 10 in third down conversion rate (48.63%) and are rated 20th in both points per game (34.7) and points per play (0.468).


They rank 16th in scoring defense, allowing opponents just 20.8 points per game and 0.301 points per play (ranked 19th).


Additionally, they exert a lot of pressure with their pass rush, recording an 8.10 percent sack rate (ranked 23rd).


  • The Clemson Tigers are 6-3 ATS in their previous 9 meetings. 
  • The Tigers are 17-2 SU in their last 19 matches. 
  • Clemson is 11-4 SU in their last 15 matches in the Southeastern Conference.

#6 Tennessee Volunteers vs #7 Clemson Tigers. The NCAAF pick for this game is the #6 Tennessee Volunteers. Going into the Orange Bowl, both of these teams’ rosters are without important contributors.


While Clemson is losing key defensive players, Tennessee’s offense is missing more components. Despite only surrendering 72.7 more yards per game, the Volunteers average 116.7 more yards per game than the Tigers.


Both of these offenses prioritize rushing the ball (53.73% for Tennessee vs. 53.38% for Clemson), and both are virtually equally effective at stopping it (Tennessee permitting opponents 3.3 yards per carry vs. Clemson’s 3.2).


Given that the two teams are almost identical, I’m going to provide the turnover margin as the deciding factor, where the Volunteers emerged with +0.7 per game as opposed to only +0.1 for the Tigers.


The additional 5.5 points are also not detrimental. The #6 Tennessee Volunteers will win to a predicted score of 35-30.
