What to Know

The Clemson Tigers are 8-1 against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons since February of 2016, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Friday. Clemson and Wake Forest will face off in an ACC battle at 7 p.m. ET at Littlejohn Coliseum. The Tigers are out to keep their five-game home win streak alive.

Clemson beat the Penn State Nittany Lions 101-94 on Tuesday. Clemson can attribute much of their success to forward Hunter Tyson, who had 24 points along with nine rebounds.

Meanwhile, it was a close one, but on Tuesday Wake Forest sidestepped the Wisconsin Badgers for a 78-75 win. Guard Tyree Appleby took over for the Demon Deacons, finishing with 32 points (a whopping 41% of their total) and five assists.

Barring any buzzer beaters, the Tigers are expected to win a tight contest. But bettors beware: they are only 2-5 against the spread when favored.

Their wins bumped Clemson to 6-2 and Wake Forest to 7-1. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Clemson and Wake Forest clash.
