ESPN makes Playoff predictions for Clemson
|Wednesday, August 28, 2019, 2:47 PM-|
ESPN released its official bowl and Playoff projections on Wednesday and the Tigers are once again expected to make a deep Playoff run.
The bowl prognostication duo of Kyle Bonagura and Mark Schlabach are in agreement on just how No. 1 Clemson ends up in New Orleans come January. They both send Dabo Swinney's Tigers through Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta (Dec. 28), with Bonagura matching up Clemson and Ohio State and Schlabach going for another Clemson-Alabama semifinal showdown.
Bonagura then picks the Clemson-Alabama, CFP pt. 5, in the national championship (1/13/20; 8 p.m.) and Schlabach sees the SEC East champs Georgia instead taking on the Tigers.
Around the ACC, both see Syracuse stepping into the New Year's Six bowls with a spot in the Orange Bowl.
