#2 Clemson Tigers
Clemson has become a frequent participant in the CFB Playoffs, and they won the National Championship two years ago (over Alabama). They also made it last season, though they lost in the semifinal to eventual champion Alabama despite being the #1 seed. This year, they went 13-0 (9-0 ACC), and have again settled into the playoff again.
Clemson is perhaps the most balanced offensive squad in this year’s playoff, with their 529.9 total yards per game divided nearly equally between rushing (259.8 ypg) and passing (270.1 ypg). They’ve scored an average of 45.4 points per game (5th nationally), with a low output of 27, which they scored twice this season.
