Social media jabs Clemson after Tigers release 2020 schedule
The Atlantic Coast Conference, including Clemson, released its full 2020 football schedule Wednesday morning.
Once again, Clemson will be a heavy favorite to win the ACC Championship and make yet another appearance in the College Football Playoff.
Dabo Swinney’s Tigers are on the brink of a full-fledged dynasty. Aside from Alabama specifically, the Tigers are (and have been for the last few years) the talk of college football. Yes, LSU thumped Clemson in the national championship; however, the Tigers are going nowhere this year. Among others, quarterback Trevor Lawrence returns, as does running back Travis Etienne.
Clemson has won 22 straight ACC games and beat conference opponents in 2019 by a 37-point average margin of victory. In 2019, Clemson’s schedule was a major topic of conversation leading up to the Playoff, and that won’t be going away in 2020 either.
The Tigers will be making their first trip to Notre Dame since 1979 following a bye week. That game could set up to be a major Playoff showdown in November. Seven of Clemson’s first eight games are conference matchups.
Below is a look at the Tigers schedule:
