ESPN: Schedule Analysis - Clemson

According to Heather Dinich of ESPN, Clemson might have the toughest 2013 schedule in the ACC with several possible trap games.

Final analysis: There is more than one trap game on this schedule, as heading to Raleigh on a Thursday night could also be dangerous for the Tigers, as will the Thursday night game against Georgia Tech on Nov. 14. Despite the presence of two FCS teams on the schedule, this is arguably the most difficult lineup in the ACC. The good news is that it is conducive to winning a national title. If Clemson wins the Big Three: vs. Georgia, vs. Florida State and at South Carolina, the Tigers should be a top-5 team looking at a chance to play in the last BCS national championship game. If Clemson wins those three games, though, and stumbles against Georgia Tech or falls into a trap at Syracuse, the entire picture changes. Those within the program believe the days of "pulling a Clemson" are officially over. This is the schedule that can further prove it. Dabo Swinney has recruited well enough to take the program to an elite level, but can he coach them there? He already beat LSU, but he has yet to beat South Carolina. This schedule is aggressive -- but so are Swinney's expectations.
