During a video on his YouTube Channel Snaps, ESPN analyst Aaron Murray shared Week 12 predictions, including Clemson’s matchup with No.22 North Carolina. The Tigers are on a strong run, and Murray believes that will continue.
“I like them. It’s at home; it’s going to be a great crowd; they got the juices going since Tyler (from Spartanburg) called,” Murray said
“Cade’s playing better, too, Klubnik. It seems like he’s starting to grasp the offense a little bit more… I think Cade is playing good enough,” Murray said. “It’s in Clemson, and I’ve said it a few times this year I feel like, but Drake has just had some just iffy moments for the season where he’s just not been the same guy he was last year. Not saying he’s bad, not saying that he’s not going to be a top-five, top-10 pick in the NFL Draft, but just has not been the same.”
Clemson heads into this matchup as the betting favorite, and home-field advantage is massive for a program like this. Even with that, Murray simply believes Clemson is the better team.
“I think Clemson’s just better,” he said. “And for UNC, when we were praising their defense to start the season of how good the defense was – defense has kind of dropped off a little bit as of late as well. So, I think Clemson can kind of move the ball on them up and down the field at home.”
We’ll see who is truly the better team on Saturday.
