Clemson is looking to earn a spot in the college football playoff for the second consecutive year. A win on Saturday over Virginia Tech in the ACC Championship game should do the trick.
The Tigers have recovered from a loss against Pittsburgh to climb back to No. 3 in the playoff rankings. They’ve done it behind the stellar play of quarterback DeShaun Watson, who is in the thick of a muddled Heisman Trophy race thanks to the disappointing finish by season-long favorite Lamar Jackson of Louisville. Another good performance from Watson could clinch the honor.
Virginia Tech, meanwhile, is looking to spoil the party. The No. 19 Hokies are 9-3, and would undoubtedly love to reach double digits in the win category and win a conference title.
Kickoff for is set for 8:00 p.m. ET. Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit have the call. You can catch all the action live on ABC, or stream it online free with a cable subscription via WatchESPN on your pc, phone, or tablet.
