The Clemson Tigers are going to play in the ACC championship game, but first they need to defeat the N.C. State Wolfpack to close out their conference schedule (they play the South Carolina Gamecocks to finish the regular season). It might be a tough game despite Clemson's 9-1 record this season.
Tigers fans are worried about the turnover battle, as the Wolfpack have been solid at getting the ball into the hands of its defense. The Wolfpack leads the conference in turnover margin, and Tajh Boyd could wind up throwing a few interceptions this weekend.
Wolfpack fans, though, are upset with their middling 5-5 record and have huge issues with head coach Tom O'Brien. Maybe not letting Russell Wilson come back as the starting quarterback had something to do with that.
