  • Miami and the turnover chain will pull off the upset over Clemson in the ACC Championship

Clemson, whose lone loss this season came at Syracuse on October 13, would nearly certainly clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff with a win.

Clemson will be in the College Football Playoffs for the third straight year, and will most likely be the number one seed when the rankings come out Sunday evening. Quarterback Kelly Bryant has thrown 22 total touchdowns to lead Clemson this season, while Travis Etienne has rushed for 12 scores. The Clemson receiving corps was spread out, with 11 different pass catchers hauling in a reception in the rout. That group allowed just 214 yards and 10 first downs to help the Tigers win their third straight ACC title and fifth since 2009.

Miami will be hampered offensively with season-ending injuries to wide receiver Ahmmon Richards and tight end Christopher Herndon. Both teams had a loss to a less-than-good team - Miami's to Pittsburgh and Clemson's coming to Syracuse - but nothing they couldn't overcome. Junior quarterback Malik Rosier finished the night 14-for-29 for just 110 yards, including two interceptions. No two-loss team has made the four-team playoff bracket in its first three years of existence, although Auburn now is ranked No. 2 despite having lost twice this season - including to Clemson.
