How to Watch Clemson vs Georgia Tech Online for Free

Will Shipley

Getty Will Shipley will be expected to power Clemson's offense this season.

Clemson is the overwhelming favorite for its season-opening game against Georgia Tech. The Tigers merit the favorites tag thanks largely to the skills and performances of running back Will Shipley.

He’s punished the Yellow Jackets in the past, and Shipley will again be expected to lead an offense unable to count on consistent quarterback play. D.J. Uiagalelei probably begins the season as the starter, but he’ll need a strong early showing to fend off the challenge from freshman signal-caller Cade Klubnik.

At least Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney can rely on a defense loaded with star power, including versatile linemen Myles Murphy and Bryan Bresee. Their main target will be Georgia Tech quarterback Jeff Sims, a true dual-threat playmaker who won’t be able to call on the services of gifted running back Jahmyr Gibbs after his transfer to Alabama.

The game (8 p.m. ET start time) will be televised on ESPN, but if you don’t have cable, you can watch a live stream on FuboTV or DirecTV Stream, which both come with a free trial.

Those are the two best live stream options if you’re cutting cable, but there are also some other alternatives, so here’s a full guide on the different ways to watch Clemson vs Georgia Tech streaming live online:

Clemson vs Georgia Tech Preview

Shipley made life a misery for the Yellow Jackets last season, rushing for 88 yards and a pair of touchdowns when the Tigers won 14-8 last September. That impressive stat line was part of a campaign during which Shipley averaged 5 yards per carry.

Shipley can be counted on to deliver the goods, but it’s a different story for those tasked with throwing passes for Swinney. Uiagalelei needs to be “more productive after completing only 55.6% of his passes and throwing more interceptions (10) than touchdowns (9) in 2021,” according to Scott Keepfer of the Greenville News.

Swinney and his staff are waiting on some consistency at quarterback, but Georgia Tech boss Geoff Collins knows he can trust Sims to make plays. The 20-year-old threw for 1,468 yards and 12 touchdowns and added 372 yards and four scores on the ground last season.

Sims can expect his numbers to get a boost now former Carolina Panthers quarterback Chris Weinke is his position coach. Keeping Sims on the move will be the Yellow Jackets’ best strategy, so his speed and elusiveness can continue to torment defenses.

Clemson edge-rusher K.J. Henry knows all about Sims’ move skills, per Keepfer:

Henry and the rest of the Tigers’ pass rush will need to work hard to keep Sims in the pocket. It won’t be easy, but last season’s sack leader Murphy will be key, as will junior linebacker Trenton Simpson, who logged six QB takedowns in 2021. He has the range to play spy against Sims and track his scrambling.

Clemson boasts the athleticism and strength in depth to rotate game wreckers in and out of the front seven and keep Sims harassed all day. If that happens, the Tigers will create enough possessions to win by two or three scores.
