The No. 10 Wake Forest Demon Deacons could clinch the ACC Atlantic with one win over their final two games, while the Clemson Tigers need a victory to keep their slim hopes of competing for a conference title alive.

Clemson and Wake Forest are two one-sided teams in 2021 with the Tigers excelling on defense with a poor offense, while the Demon Deacons score a ton of points but struggle to stop opponents from scoring. For as poor as Clemson has been offensively this season, the Tigers scored at least 30 points in three straight games, and they should be fine against a defense that gave up 34 or more points in five of their last six games.
