Clemson's Most-Likely Bowl Game Heading Into The Final Weekend

The Clemson Tigers are 11-1 with one game left - the ACC title game against Virginia Tech. Let's take a look at which bowl game they're likely headed to after Saturday.

Clemson finished the regular season with an 11-1 record and an ACC Atlantic title. The Tigers posted wins over Auburn, Troy, South Carolina State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Boston College, NC State, Florida State, Syracuse, Wake Forest and South Carolina. The team's lone loss came to Pittsburgh.

Clemson has one game left, and it's a big one. The Tigers take on Virginia Tech in the ACC title game this Saturday. If the Tigers win, they're almost assured a spot in the College Football Playoff.

If the Tigers do make the College Football Playoff, they'll likely be either the 2-seed or the 3-seed. In that case, with Alabama as the overall No. 1, the Tigers would be headed to the Fiesta Bowl. In CBS Sports' Jerry Palm's projection, they'd take on Ohio State.

Nothing is set in stone, especially considering the Tigers have one more game to win on Saturday. But if all goes to plan, they'll be in Glendale, Arizona on December 31.
