NC State had a 41-10 victory of their own last week against the UConn Huskies, but have yet to play a conference game this season.

Clemson vs NC State Prediction
In looking at the latest Clemson vs NC state odds, it’s curious that Clemson is looking at a point total of 42 to beat when they’ve scored enough points in 3 of their first 4 contests to hit that over on their own.
NC State hasn’t struggled to move the ball either – at least in more recent games. It wouldn’t be shocking if the point total was in the rearview mirror by the third quarter.
Beyond that, Clemson has a better defensive line with names like Myles Murphy, Bryan Bresee, and K.J. Henry. The trio has recorded a modest three sacks between them through the first four games, but they might have a chance to create pressure and become the stars of the show if this game becomes a shootout.
Look for plenty of offense and a game that comes right down to the wire.
Prediction: Clemson 37, NC State 33
