Clemson is 6-0 again and ranked third in the new AP poll. The Tigers are in great position to be in the top four when the first CFP ranking is released November 1st which means they are right where they expected to be at the halfway point in the season.
What is unexpected is NC State now being the Tigers greatest threat in the ACC Atlantic Division.
The Wolfpack, coming off their hurricane influenced win over Notre Dame Saturday, also has a clean ACC slate to this point at 2-0 and with Clemson is the only unbeaten team in league play in the division.
So, Saturday’s winner will stand alone in first place in the division.
Here is what some of the Tigers were saying Monday morning about the week ahead.
