This is going to tell Clemson whether we are playoff material or not. This game makes or breaks our national championship hopes. It's that simple. Sure we can still win the ACC but I think I speak for all of us when I say we want it all! If we win or lose to ND then GT and FSU and then of course SCar will be our next big games either way.
The Louisville game also showed if we were playoff material... I think in the ACC the only way a one loss team gets in the playoff is if every other conference has a 2 loss conference champion.
Every game matters for the playoff... lose one and we are likely eliminated from the playoff!
Alabama lost but could still have a shot, USC lost and could still have a shot, Oregon lost 2 and is likely eliminated even if they win the Pac12. A one loss conference champion from SEC, Pac12 or B12 will be selected ahead of a 1 loss ACC team.
