College Football 2019: Where to Watch Charlotte vs. Clemson, TV Channel, Live Stream and Odds

Clemson is a 41-point favorite against Charlotte on Saturday, but Tigers coach Dabo Swinney has warned his team of the dangers of complacency.

The defending champions are 3-0 so far this season, while the 49ers are 2-1 but have not finished the season with a record above .500 since the program was started six years ago.

Swinney, however, insisted the 49ers had all it took to give the Tigers a scare.

"This is a team offensively that is going to challenge us," the Clemson head coach said during his press conference on Tuesday. "[I was] very impressed watching them on tape. This is the most explosive team we have played to this point."

When looking at Charlotte's figures this season, it is hard to disagree with Swinney. The 49ers averaged 47 points and 522 total yards through the first three games of the campaign, and their two wins have come by a combined 101-45 scoreline.

"I'm impressed with is how well-coached they are," the Tigers coach explained. "Schematically, this is probably the biggest challenge for our defense this season so far in what they do structurally."

Impressive as the 49ers have been offensively so far this season, they would need a minor miracle in the sporting sense of the word to win on the road against Clemson.

Last weekend, the defending champions extended their winning run to 18 games—a new school record and the longest streak in the nation—with a 41-6 rout of Syracuse in New York.

Trevor Lawrence finished with a career-best 395 passing yards and three touchdowns and added a score on the ground, but was intercepted twice.

The Tigers signal caller started the campaign as the joint-favorite for the Heisman Trophy, along with Alabama counterpart Tua Tagovailoa, but he has seen his odds lengthen from 3/1 to 15/2.

Lawrence has been less accurate than last season—he already has five picks through three games, compared to four in the whole of last season—and has seen some of his rivals produce incredible performances.

If the sophomore signal caller can slightly adjust his radar, the Tigers could become an even more formidable opponent.

Clemson has already negotiated the only ranked opponent on its schedule, and the question now has to be whether it can go unbeaten for a second consecutive year.

Here's all you need to know ahead of Saturday.
