I don't even have to look at the ESPN FPI to know it is going to pick Clemson to win. As ESPN's FPI is the biggest joke in college football.

Dang I hope you are correct and Clemson gets those garbage tds late to avoid 6 points total. Have a bad feeling but I always do when the Tigers play.

Same thing I thought when I saw this. I actually think Clemson has a better chance than most people on this board think they do, but the FPI is shite.
