Clemson vs. Virginia: TV Info, Spread, Injury Updates, Game Time and More
Eighth-ranked Clemson will take a trip to Scott Stadium this Saturday to face Virginia in an ACC showdown.
The Tigers (7-1) rebounded from their blowout loss to Florida State by beating Maryland, 40-27, last week, and they will be looking for another comfortable victory this week.
The Cavaliers are just 2-6 on the season and have yet to win a conference game. They have lost five straight, and none of those losses have come against a ranked opponent.
Clemson's mighty passing attack, led by quarterback Tajh Boyd and receiver Sammy Watkins, will be looking to exploit a Virginia defense that is 78th in the nation in points allowed.
Trailing Florida State by a game in the ACC Atlantic, Clemson can't afford a letdown in this game.
When: Saturday, Nov. 2, at 3:30 p.m. ET
Where: Scott Stadium, Charlottesville, Virginia
Spread: Clemson -17 (Bovada)

Key Storyline: Can Clemson correct its red-zone woes?
Clemson, while 25th in the nation in scoring, is not posting points like it did a season ago. Most of this can be attributed to sinking production in the red zone.
Last year, the Tigers led the nation in red-zone scoring with 56 touchdowns in 59 trips into the red zone. This season, the Tigers have just 24 touchdowns in 37 trips.
Last week was a good example of the red-zone woes.
Clemson had a chance to put Maryland away early. However, three field goals out of the first four trips into the red zone helped keep the game close.
The Tigers will look for much greater success on that part of the field against this vulnerable Virginia defense.
Prediction: Clemson 52, Virginia 20
Needless to say, I see Clemson finding that red-zone success. In fact, the Tigers will thrive on all areas of the field.
Facing the high-powered Oregon offense earlier in the year, Virginia allowed 59 points. The Cavaliers didn't have the athletes to keep up in that game—and they won't in this one.
