From al.com:

Clemson is coming off a humbling 70-33 loss to West Virginia in the Orange Bowl, but the Tigers are a consensus top-25 pick in 2012.
The offense should be fun to watch, with an experienced quarterback in Tajh Boyd, who threw for 33 touchdowns and almost 4,000 yards a year ago. Many believe that only the Florida State game in Tallahassee stands between Clemson winning its division and, perhaps, entering the national title conversation.

The bad news for Clemson? Running back Mike Bellamy is academically ineligible and receiver Sammy Watkins could face suspension for an off-season arrest.
