Pitts has been the second-most targeted tight end in the country with the Gators throwing to him 24% of the time. Texas A&M holds a 1-8 record against top 10 teams since Jimbo Fisher’s arrival in 2018. The last time the Aggies beat a top-10 team was a 74-72 win over then-No. 8 LSU in seven overtimes on Nov. 24, 2018.

VaTech running back Khalil Herbert, a Kansas transfer, leads the nation in all-purpose yards per game (276.5). The Tar Heels feature the second-best defense in the ACC, led by senior linebacker Chazz Surratt, who has 4.0 sacks this season.

This time around, Miami features transfer quarterback D’Eriq King, who is third in the conference in total offense. Clemson, which has looked impressive behind quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Travis Etienne, is pushing to extend several streaks, including consecutive regular-season wins (32), consecutive conference wins (24) and consecutive home wins (24).
