To call Clemson’s season a disappointment would be an understatement. The Tigers began the season ranked No. 6 in the nation before getting knocked out of the rankings at one point.
They clawed their way back in at No. 19 after finishing the season 9-3 straight up and 4-8 against the spread. Their reward is a date with the Iowa State Cyclones in the Cheez-It Bowl in Orlando Florida.
Clemson heads into the bowl game on a five-game winning streak with a 4-1 record ATS. And in December, Clemson has been guaranteed money with a 13-1 ATS run in recent years.
