Clemson vs Georgia Tech Week 1 Game Info
2022 NCAA College Football Game
No. 4 Clemson Tigers (0-0) vs. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (0-0)
Date: Monday, September 5, 2022
Time: 8:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Mercedes-Benz Stadium — Atlanta, GA
Week 1 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes an ACC showdown between the No. 4 Clemson Tigers and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. Clemson failed to win the conference title last season for the first time since 2014, so look for head coach Dabo Swinney to be motivated for a W.
Meanwhile, Georgia Tech posted a dismal 3-9 record (2-6 ACC) and then lost starting running back Jahmyr Gibbs to the transfer portal. Quarterback Jeff Sims returns to lead what is a young Yellow Jackets squad, so it'll be interesting to see if any early-season upset magic is backing him up.

Clemson vs Georgia Tech Prediction & Pick
Clemson hasn't had much of a reason to be angry over the last decade. They are angry now, though, and that makes them a dangerous team in the College Football Playoff conversation. Quarterback DJ Uiagalelei and running back Will Shipley are back, giving the Tigers a great one-two punch on offense.
Georgia Tech was able to keep this game close in 2021, losing by a final score of 14-8. However, it is now winless in each of its last seven head-to-head matchups against Clemson. Not only that, but the Yellow Jackets have also been outscored by a whopping 194 points during that span, so expect a blowout here.
Final Score Prediction: Clemson: 45 | Georgia Tech: 17

Last year's meeting between these schools seemed like an outlier more than anything else. Clemson was a 37-point favorite against Georgia Tech in 2019 and won by 38 points. The Tigers were then favored by 27 points in 2020 and won by 66 points. Overall, Clemson is 5-1-1 against the spread in its last seven games against Tech.
Swinney and his players have had an entire offseason to contemplate what happened last year and use it as fuel to get better. This is still a team that has covered the spread in 11 of its last 15 games as a road favorite. There's no reason to stop backing them now, so I feel confident laying the points.
Bet: Clemson -24.5 (+100)
