Clemson’s offense looked out of sorts for the vast majority of the 2021 season, but the talent remains to have a top-flight unit regardless of which quarterback — DJ Uiagalelei or Cade Klubnik — lines up under center. Georgia Tech has far more questions to answer, and head coach Geoff Collins has all but run out of time to provide proof of concept. Even if the Tigers don’t have everything figured out at the moment, they should take care of business here.
