Can the Tigers sneak into the payoff with another loss?
The College Football Playoff selection committee released its new rankings on Tuesday night, and a new No. 1 sat at the top of the leaderboard.
Clemson, heading into the ACC title game, sits at No. 1.
According to Dan Wolken of USA Today, the Tigers will make it into the playoff even if they lose to Miami this weekend.
Clemson is in win or lose. Just my opinion.

Can a 2-loss Clemson team make the playoff? The Tigers have a win over Auburn, the current No. 2 team in the country, which helps, especially if Auburn takes down Georgia this weekend.
A 2-loss Clemson team would contend with a 2-loss Ohio State team, and a one-loss Alabama team for the final spot, assuming the other favorites win their conference title games this weekend.
