The 2022 NCAA college football season is right around the corner and the Clemson Tigers are still unsure whether D.J. Uiagalelei or freshman Cade Klubnik will be their No.1 quarterback. Regardless of who starts under center in Week 1, they'll be tasked with opening the season against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets.

Clemson vs Georgia Tech Week 1 College Football Odds

Georgia Tech fans hoping for a strong start to the upcoming campaign might be disappointed. Unless something changes, FanDuel Sportsbook's opening week odds list the Yellow Jackets as major underdogs.

The spread is sitting at 20.5 points in favor of Clemson, with both teams getting -110 odds to cover. The over/under point total line is set at 50 points.

Clemson vs Georgia Tech History

It's no secret that the two ACC rivals have met dozens of times over the year, colliding in a whopping 85 matchups since 1902. It's actually Georgia Tech that's winning the head-to-head battle, owning a 51-34-2 record over Clemson.

Having said that, the Tigers have dominated the Yellow Jackets in recent years, going 9-1 against their conference rivals in 10 meetings since 2012. Their last meeting was a low-scoring affair, though, ending in a 14-8 victory for Clemson.

It'll be interesting to see if this year's meeting is lopsided too. After all, Clemson has beaten Georgia Tech by an average final score of 47 to 12.5 in their last four meetings.
