Top Week 3 college football expert predictions

One of Sallee's top college football picks for Week 3: He's going over 52 in the ACC matchup between Clemson and Georgia Tech on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET. 

The Tigers have hit the 52 mark or higher the past two years by themselves when playing the Yellow Jackets. Clemson won 73-7 last year and 52-14 in 2019. It also picked up a 49-21 victory over Georgia Tech in 2018.

Several of the key faces have changed for Clemson, but the Tigers still have big offensive upside. Sallee sees this as a great tune-up game for tougher ACC opponents on the horizon, and is expecting another offensive explosion from Dabo Swinney's squad.

"The Tigers offense needs to develop their identity, and a game against a Yellow Jackets team that is wildly undermanned is the perfect chance to do so," Sallee told SportsLine. "This has 60-burger written all over it."
