Bonnie Bernstein has a hot take on the ACC title game and College Football Playoff.

Former ESPN sideline reporter Bonnie Bernstein thinks it's possible that after Miami's loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday, the Hurricanes, even if they beat Clemson in the ACC title game next week, could be passed over for the College Football Playoff - for Clemson.

Bernstein believes that road wins and strength of schedule could be enough for the Tigers to get in over the Hurricanes, even if they lose to them on a neutral field next week.

Bernstein's take was met with some opposition. Check it all out:

Is Bernstein right?

At this point, both teams have bad losses, and yes, Clemson's list of wins is far more impressive. But in my estimation, it's hard to imagine a Miami team that finishes 11-1 and just beat Clemson on a neutral field being left out of the playoff. To each his/her own though.

One thing is for sure - the Tigers will approach the game like they need to win to get in. Next week should be awesome.
