Jimbo Fisher is 4-4 against Dabo Swinney from his days playing Clemson as the coach at Florida State.

Now that Fisher is with Texas A&M, he will face a tough test once again, as Swinney’s Tigers will head to College Station in Week 2 of the 2018 season.

On Friday, ESPN analyst Adam Rittenberg joined “The Paul Finebaum Show” and weighed in on the big-time matchup (around the 3-minute mark). He said he doesn’t think the Aggies have what it takes to win this year, but added that A&M could be a College Football Playoff contender in the near future.

“They can’t get away from one another,” he said. “Jimbo, I don’t think, has the team yet to challenge Clemson at A&M, but we’ll see. He’s got a lot of talent left over. Talking to coaches in the SEC, they say that defense should be much improved this year under Mike Elko, which is one of the better coordinator hires in the country.

“Clemson, to me, is a clear top-four challenger entering the year — maybe the favorite behind Alabama to get into the Playoff. It’s going to be a real challenge for Jimbo in year one, but they return the game next year when they go to Death Valley. These two are going to see each other, at least in the regular season, for the next couple of years these next two seasons. And who knows? Maybe they could see each other in the postseason soon thereafter.”

Whatever happens this season in College Station, that Week 2 showdown should be a lot of fun. And it’s not out of the question that Fisher and the Aggies could pull off the massive upset.
