ESPN analyst predicts Clemson in the CFB playoff
ESPN analyst Mark Schlabach predicted on Wednesday that Clemson would finish the regular season undefeated and make the 4-team college football playoff as a #2 playoff seed.
"The No. 6 Tigers probably aren't getting nearly enough credit for what they've done so far this season," Schlabach said. "They'll win their next two road games at Miami and NC State to move to 8-0, and then they'll knock off No. 9 Florida State at Death Valley on Nov. 7, ending the Seminoles' 30-game winning streak against ACC foes. It will be smooth sailing for the Tigers from there, with regular-season games against Syracuse (road), Wake Forest (home) and South Carolina (road). Clemson will beat Duke in the ACC championship game to finish 13-0."
Schlabach also predicted that Alabama would win the national championship by upsetting Ohio State (#1 seed) and also beating Baylor (#3 seed). He had Clemson (#2 seed) losing to Baylor in the national semi-finals.
