At the beginning of the season, Clemson was a betting on College Football co-favorite with Alabama to win the national championship. After all the Tigers and Crimson Tide have won the last four Nattys combined. Clemson has not had much of a challenge in the Atlantic Coast Conference this season.

Saturday night the Tigers will face a perceived sacrificial lamb for the ACC title. Upstart Virginia won’t be a free pass.
