CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — No. 6 Clemson has enjoyed squaring off against Georgia Tech on the football field in recent years.

It has usually resulted in a very strong offensive performance by the Tigers.

Clemson has won six in a row over the Yellow Jackets. They’ve scored 49 points or more in the past three games, including a dominating 73-7 victory a year ago.

Clemson’s offense is in transition with new starters at quarterback and tailback to replace NFL first-round draft picks in Trevor Lawrence and Travis Etienne.

Things stalled in a 10-3 loss to Georgia in Week One, then took a step forward last week in a 49-3 victory over South Carolina State.
