Summary: The Tigers plan to have a shot at the national championship and if they can contend for that position they will have earned it. They open the season with a top ten match up at home against Georgia. They face Florida State at home in October and finish the regular season at South Carolina. Clemson went 2-1 against SEC teams last season. Sr. QB Tajh Boyd returns and has WR Sammy Watkins as his main target. Both of them are expected to be drafted to the NFL in 2014 and they are two of 11 starters that return for coach Dabo Swinney. Defensively the Tigers had some holes in 2013. They allowed 20 or more points in seven games.
