10-0, 1st in ACC - Atlantic

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Georgia on Monday announced future home-and-home series with both Texas and Clemson. The Bulldogs and Longhorns will play in 2028 (at Texas) and in 2029 (at Georgia). Georgia and Clemson will play in 2029 (at Clemson) and in 2030 (at Georgia). The teams in August announced they will play in the 2024 Chick-fil-A Kickoff in Atlanta.

Assume Clemson, Michigan, Oklahoma and Georgia all win out, Alabama finishes 12-1 and Notre Dame finishes 11-1. In that scenario, Playoff Predictor makes Clemson and Georgia virtual locks and considers Michigan very likely to get in. The decision for the last spot would be almost a toss-up between Oklahoma and Alabama, but our model thinks the committee is more likely to select the Sooners, by a hair. Notre Dame would be the least likely of the six to get in.

This week's top four is unanimous, from No. 1 Alabama to No. 4 Michigan. But if history has taught us anything, chaos is right around the corner.

A strange first half in Chestnut Hill ends with Clemson leading 13-7. The Tigers have out-gained Boston College 260-24 and run 18 more plays than the Eagles. But an aggressive and stingy BC defense has limited damage. The Eagles now must find something that works on offense with QB Anthony Brown out and RB AJ Dillon ineffective (8 carries, 27 yards). Clemson starting left tackle Mitch Hyatt left the game late in the first half with an unknown injury.

Boston College needs to find something soon on offense, but its defense has been very solid so far in limiting damage. Clemson has 212 yards behind efficient QB Trevor Lawrence, but it has struggled in the red zone and in short-yardage situations (50 rush yards on 14 carries). Linebackers Connor Strachan and Max Richardson have been especially active.
