The No. 2 Clemson Tigers were a 20.5 point favorite over the visiting Pittsburgh Panthers. But the Tigers are not playing like a favorite.
The Tiger’s defense has been shredded by James Conner and the Panthers trail 42-34 at the start of the fourth quarter. Clemson has had a number of close calls this year, as it has pulled out close wins against NC State, Troy and Auburn.
Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney needs to keep his team focused. Swinney also became unhinged in the third quarter after a questionable penalty. Swinney was screaming at the referees.

The game can be seen on ABC. The Tigers do have another game against an SEC foe, as they get set to play South Carolina on Nov. 26. The Tigers have not lost a regular season game since the 2014 season.
