Welcome to another annual edition of NC State - Clemson. For some reason the powers that be at ESPN decided that this was the perfect prime time ABC matchup. I’m not sure I understand that logic, but it does mean we get to sit around all day and watch some good football before Clemson plays. Especially when Clemson should dominate NC State once again.
Everyone’s spent this week talking about the playoff rankings and how Clemson is going to have a chip on their shoulder, etc. etc. Just remember one thing, win and you are in. All Clemson has to do is keep winning. The talking heads are just trying to make money, the rankings are about generating discussion, and there are still 5 weeks of football after this week to change the rankings. Let’s just enjoy Clemson’s performance and go from there.
