TV Schedule: Saturday, Nov. 21, 3:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2

Stadium: Memorial Stadium (Clemson, SC)

Line: Clemson (-29)

The line above tells it all — the Wake Forest Demon Deacons are basically being given no shot to knock off the No. 1-ranked Clemson Tigers. Anyone surprised?

Clemson, once again, is ranked No. 1 in the country, it is undefeated and it has a serious Heisman contender in QB Deshaun Watson.

What does Wake Forest have again? A 3-7 record overall, a 1-5 ACC record, no Heisman contender and no fancy ranking.

Basically, fans shouldn’t expect anything less than a blowout. After all, there’s no way Wake Forest’s 17 points per game can outscore Clemson’s offense (averaging 38 PPG), right?

Up next for the Tigers will be the South Carolina Gamecocks. That one could be tricky. Yes, South Carolina has been awful in 2015 and also lost head coach Steve Spurrier, but rivalry games are crazy, folks. Just ask the Oklahoma Sooners about that one, who somehow lost against the Texas Longhorns earlier in the year.

Meanwhile, the Demon Deacons will close shop for the season against the Duke Blue Devils, which should result in another loss. As a result, Wake Forest will be watching bowl season from home this year.

Clemson, on the other hand, will be partaking in the ACC championship — which is no gimme — and quite possibly the College Football Playoff after that.

PREDICTION: Demon Deacons 7, Tigers 35
