Glimmer of hope for Clemson's national title dream

Posted: Updated:

CLEMSON, S.C. (WCIV) – There might be a small glimmer of hope of a national title game appearance for the Clemson Tigers.

A big part of the scenario to get the Tigers into the title game is winning this weekend against the University of South Carolina. The ACC broke down the rest of the scenario.

First, the Tigers need a win over the Gamecocks, then Texas A&M needs to beat Missouri. After that, Alabama needs to beat Auburn, while Ohio State beats Michigan and Florida State beats Florida.

That would put the Gamecocks in the SEC title game, which the Tigers need them to win. Then Florida State needs to win the ACC conference title, and Michigan State beats Ohio State in the Big 10 championship while the Tigers sit at home and wait.

If all of those things happen, on Dec. 8 it may be announced that Clemson is headed to Pasadena, Calif., for a rematch with Florida State in the BCS National Championship.

The Tigers' last national title came 32 years ago.

The Tigers' rivals this week don't have it any easier making it to Pasadena. However, beating Clemson will help USC's chances of getting an at-large bid if they don't advance and win the SEC championship.
