North Carolina State comes into this game down 2 spots as the 30th ranked team in the country, according to my computer rankings. Clemson is currently the 117th ranked team in the country. Both of these teams played decently well in non-conference play. NC State has won 5 of there last 6 games and sits at 10-3 on the season. While Clemson has only one 1 of there last 7 games and sits at 6-7 on the season. NC State has also done a decent job of covering the spread. Over the last 6 games, they have gone 4-1-1, while over Clemson’s last 6 games they have only covered 1 game.
