College football fans are eagerly awaiting next Saturday’s slate of games, and Clemson Tigers against Miami promises to be the most competitive match of the day. Clemson is currently ranked as the best team in the country, but Miami will be out to prove that its players can challenge for the national championship at number seven. Both teams have a 3-0 record this season, and Clemson’s coach Dabo Swinney recently told reporters that the game against Miami would be his team’s biggest test of the season.

Coach Swinney urges his players to be at their best on Saturday

Thetandd.com reports that Swinney claimed that Miami would be a complete team that his players have faced, and he added that his opponents have playmakers all over the field.

Even though they have won all of their games this season, Coach Swinney admitted that his team had not played well in some of its victories, and there will be no room for error when they face Miami. Clemson will have to limit Miami’s explosive offense to stand any chance of winning the game. The team’s quarterback, D’Erik King, has thrown for 736 yards and six touchdowns through three games this season, and it will be interesting to see how Clemson’s defense deals with his superb play.

Trevor Lawrence and D’Erik King are Heisman Trophy front runners

Trevor Lawrence will be Clemson’s main offensive threat, and he has impressed many pundits after throwing for 848 yards and seven touchdowns in the Tiger’s three victories.

Many draft analysts project Trevor to be the first overall pick in next year’s draft, but he could fall behind in this year’s Heisman Trophy chase if King outshines him on Saturday. Miami and Clemson both have many talented defensive players this season, and this could be a surprisingly low scoring game compared to the teams’ previous results this season.

Coach Swinney pointed out that Miami has the reigning ACC player of the year, Quincy Roche, on its defense, and he claimed that he is looking forward to the tricky matchup. The Clemson coach has also defended his team against allegations that they have a softer schedule in the ACC compared to other teams in stronger conferences.

Coach Swinney explained that his team has played in the college championship final in four of the past five seasons, and he is not concerned about the frequent criticism directed at Clemson’s schedule. Instead, Coach Swinney feels that his players have proved that they belong in the playoffs regardless of the strength of the competition they face. Fans can watch Clemson go up against Miami on ABC, and the game will also air on ESPN. A victory for Miami would push them higher in the college rankings and validate their title credentials.
