No. 3 Clemson faces No. 5 Georgia on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina. The game will be televised by ABC.
The Tigers, who lost to Ohio State in the College Football Playoff last season, will begin a new era under sophomore quarterback DJ Uiagalelei, who will be replacing Trevor Lawrence. Clemson also lost running back Travis Etienne but has a number of returning players on offense, which gave coach Dabo Swinney confidence that his group can succeed this season.
“This team is definitely further along than last year’s group,” Swinney said in the spring, according to Athlon Sports .
The Bulldogs, who won the Peach Bowl last season, return seven of 11 offensive starters and enfrolled the nation’s No. 4 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports Composite . The group was led by offensive tackle Amarius Mims, the No. 8 prospect nationally, and quarterback Brock Vandagriff, the fourth-ranked signal-caller in the nation.
The winner of Saturday’s game is likely to have a big advantage in potentially advancing to the College Football Playoff. Georgia is looking for its second berth in the tournament, having fallen to Alabama in the national championship game in 2017. Clemson has made the playoff in each of the last six seasons, winning two national championships and advancing to the title game four times.
