Top Week 13 college football expert predictions
One of Sallee's top Week 13 college football picks: Sallee is picking South Carolina and Clemson to finish under 52.5 points when they face off on Saturday at noon ET. Clemson's defense has been excellent of late, holding Louisville to 16 points and Miami (FL) to 10 points in its last two games. The Tigers held the Hurricanes to just 98 total yards, with Jeremiah Trotter Jr. racking up nine tackles.
South Carolina is coming off a 63-point outing against Tennessee, but it is just two weeks removed from scoring just six points against Florida. The Gamecocks also scored just 10 points against Missouri at the end of October, so they are going to have trouble scoring on Clemson's defense. These teams have gone under the total in eight of their last 11 head-to-head meetings.
"This point total is inflated after what Spencer Rattler and the Gamecocks did to Tennessee last weekend. Plus, their game plan won't be designed to get into a point-per-minute shootout like it was last weekend vs. the Volunteers," Sallee told SportsLine. "Both teams in this rivalry will keep things close to the vest and focus on ball control rather than lighting it up downfield." See what else Sallee likes at SportsLine.
