ACC in danger of being excluded from 2nd straight playoff


AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA (AP) — Clemson’s loss at Notre Dame was a severe blow to the ACC’s hopes of landing a team in the College Football Playoff.

Even with only three weeks remaining in the regular season, the league’s coaches believe it’s too early to count out the Tigers or another one-loss team, North Carolina.
