Clemson drawing concern from college football fans after Saturday's narrow victory
Clemson hosted Georgia Tech on Saturday afternoon in a game many expected the Tigers to run away with.
Well, that didn’t happen, as the Clemson offense failed to get going and the Yellow Jackets kept things close. In fact, Tech had a chance to tie it up late in the fourth quarter.
However, needing a touchdown and a 2-point conversion to tie it up, Georgia Tech failed on this fourth-and-goal from the 2-yard line:
Clemson survives !!!

That was a bad play call, yes, but Clemson holding on to only escape with a 14-6 win wasn’t what many fans wanted to see.
That performance from Dabo Swinney’s squad drew plenty of concern on social media:
Clemson survives, but this is GTs second year of playing post world war 2 football and they still almost won

So Clemson holds on, but this has been a pretty bad day for the ACC. #Hokies lose
‘Canes get routed
Clemson taken to the wire
Am I missing anything?

If you think Clemson is the number 6 team in the nation….. you smoke crack

Clemson gets a stop. They should be embarrassed that the game came down to this point.

Can’t believe it came down to a goal line stand. This offense is uh, not good. #Clemson

Is this a team that can win out in the ACC and make a run at a Playoff spot? The defense is legit, but the offense has plenty of question marks.
We’ll see what happens as the season wears on.
