Clemson football has dominated the series against Georgia Tech in recent years, but the Tigers shouldn’t take the Yellow Jackets lightly.
Clemson is the 21-point favorite in the game, but that doesn’t mean much. His 14-8 win over Clemson last year was inconclusive as the Tigers stopped Tech on his fourth and his second attempt with 15 seconds remaining at Memorial Stadium. .
Still, Clemson is expected to take eight straight wins in the series.
Here’s what you need to know about matchups and score predictions.
Georgia Tech’s tough start
Georgia Tech has one of the tightest schedules in the country. Yellow, who opened Monday night’s game against No. 4 Clemson, will face Ole Miss, UCF and Pitt in his three of his next four games.
Georgia Tech is one of five Power Five teams facing two ranked non-conference opponents, Ole Miss and Georgia. That’s not the recipe for success for Tech and his coach Jeff Collins, who is head-to-head after a total of nine wins in his first three seasons.

Clemson looks to click attack
The game is the first testing ground for Clemson quarterback DJ Wiagalerai as he struggled to regain freshman form as a sophomore last season. Looking over his shoulder at his clubnik, Cade, an acclaimed freshman, Wiagalerei said that in 2021, he will only have a 55.6% pass completion rate and more interceptions than touchdowns (9). You should be more productive from throwing (10).
If your passing game is stuck in neutral, expect another big outing from sophomore running back Will Shipley, who scored both Clemson touchdowns in last season’s win over the Yellow Jackets.
Georgia Tech has eight new coaches
Especially in this case, the season opener has a lot of unknowns. Georgia Tech has his eight new coaches. Three of his were fired by coach Jeff Collins and five were moved to greener pastures.
The Yellow Jackets also saw 12 players enter the transfer portal, including running back Jarmer Gibbs, the best player to ever leave for Alabama.
Tech’s Jeff Sims is a playmaker
One known quantity that Clemson has to deal with is Tech’s Jeff Sims. In his third year as a starter, he is a dual threat his quarterback expected to have the most productive season.
“In the moment you think he’s there, he probably isn’t,” said KJ Henry, fifth-year defensive end for Clemson.
But in the face of an NFL-talented Clemson defense, Sims will need a lot of help from friends to get closer to the game of his career and the Yellow Jackets.
