Week 5 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

Week 5 Football Bowl Projection Breakdown

Not surprisingly, the ACC is headed for a Clemson and Florida State showdown. That contest is not until November 7th, but it looks probable that both will be undefeated. The ACC is not all that tough, but with the way everything else is going, a one-loss Clemson or FSU squad has a good shot at the playoffs. With the Tigers holding on to beat Notre Dame, Clemson’s toughest game may be behind them. And their toughest road game yet to come is probably at North Carolina State or Miami. Both of those are winnable. Clemson has made their debut in our projected playoffs this week and they may not be going away for a long, long time…if ever.
