The Clemson Tigers have three big comebacks to their credit this year, twice surviving two-touchdown deficits and once overcoming an 18-point hole. They've decided to up the difficulty against the N.C. State Wolfpack, facing a 27-3 disadvantage with 30 minutes left.
As somewhat expected, this weekend has been a death trap for superior teams. Thursday and Friday both saw upsets, and Saturday has provided quite a few challenges for talented squads. The No. 7 Tigers could be the day's first top-10 team to fall.
Mike Glennon has thrown for 113 yards and two touchdowns, while Clemson's offense may not have yet arrived. Tony Creecy and James Washington have combined for 95 yards rushing, and the Pack D has forced a pair of Clemson turnovers.
The ACC's hopes of putting two teams in BCS games for the first time: dwindling.
