What’s at stake
1. Clemson could be in a position to clinch the ACC Atlantic division by kickoff on Saturday. Wake Forest (7-1, 3-1) plays at Virginia Tech (5-3, 2-2) at 3:30 p.m., and if Wake Forest loses, Clemson can move to 7-0 in the league and clinch the Atlantic with a win.
2. The Tigers can clinch their ninth consecutive 10-win season with a victory. Clemson has won at least 10 games every year since 2011.
3. Clemson can up its winning streak to 25 games with a victory. There have only been 28 winning streaks of at least 25 games in major college football history.

Clemson players to watch

Etienne topped the 100-yard mark in all four games and had 212 yards on nine carries last week against Wofford.
2. Speaking of someone playing well as of late, Trevor Lawrence has thrown for three touchdown passes in four consecutive games, becoming the first Clemson player to reach that mark since Tajh Boyd in 2012.
