Clem­son over TEXAS A&M by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 10 Www.playbook.com 1.800.playbook -

Can it be said that Dabo owns Jimbo? Granted, Clem­son de­feated FSU the past three sea­sons, but not so fast my friends… Fisher got the best of Swin­ney in four of the five pre­vi­ous meet­ings, so the two coaches are cur­rently 4-4 in their ri­valry. The Ag­gies kicked off the Jimbo era in Col­lege Sta­tion with a 59-7 win over North­west­ern State and Fisher’s “last-sec­ond” choice of Kellen Mond to start at QB looked like a solid one (he threw for 2 scores and ran for an­other), but the star of the con­test was RB Traveon Wil­liams who ran for 240 yards, the sec­ond high­est rush­ing to­tal in Ag­gie his­tory. Mean­while, Dabo was con­tent to let both of his QBs show what they had to of­fer, and in a 48-7 scrim­mage win over Fur­man, Trevor Lawrence and Kelly Bryant passed for 137 and 127 yards, re­spec­tively. There’s no way the A&M of­fense will put up 758 yards of of­fense ver­sus Clem­son like they did against the Demons, but we’re on the take with Jimbo’s young Ag­gies for sev­eral rea­sons. A&M is 7-1 ATS after an un­lined home game and 7-3 their sec­ond game of the sea­son in the past decade, while Clem­son is 1-5 against the num­ber in their last 6 home games ver­sus the SEC and 1-4 ATS in road open­ers. Also, keep in mind that the host team is 6-2 SU in this se­ries. Fi­nally, Jimbo Fisher is not only the an­swer to this week’s on page 2, his teams also have Chew on that if you will.
