ESPN’s College Gameday is heading to the campus of the No. 1 team in the country in Week 6. And not only that, but the popular college kickoff show will also be previewing a matchup between two teams ranked in the top seven of the AP Top 25 poll.
It’ll be a battle of top ACC teams at Memorial Stadium on Saturday night, when No. 1 Clemson welcomes No. 7 Miami in one of the top early-season matchups of 2020. The Tigers have won 24 consecutive games against ACC opponents, as their last loss to a conference team came on Oct. 13, 2017, at Syracuse.
If the Hurricanes can pull off an upset victory, they could shake up the rankings for next week and be in line to move closer to the top.
College Gameday will begin previewing the day’s action on site at Memorial Stadium at 9 a.m. ET on ESPN.
Here’s a look at the full Top 25 schedule for Week 6, along with predictions for each game.

Week 6 Preview
No. 1 Clemson has been to the College Football Playoff each of the past five seasons and has routinely been among the top teams in the country during that span.
However, the Tigers don’t always have challenging regular-season matchups, sometimes not facing top-level competition until later in the year.
This year, though, they are facing a top-ranked team in one of the marquee matchups of Week 6, as No. 7 Miami is looking to continue its strong start to the season with an upset win. Like the Tigers, the Hurricanes enter the matchup at 3-0 and are coming off back-to-back ACC wins against Louisville and Florida State.
Although both teams are playing well this season, Clemson has been the better program in recent years. It has won five straight ACC titles and a pair of national championships during that span. So, Miami is looking to make a statement with a strong performance against the conference’s best.
“This is a great opportunity for us to test ourselves against a team that’s very comfortable in these settings,” Hurricanes coach Manny Diaz said, according to Field Level Media (h/t ESPN). “This is not a big game at Clemson; this is just
