Clemson AD Dan Radakovich on the ACC's rise the past few seasons: "If there's three teams in that one tier, there's a couple that are really knocking on the door. Certainly Miami and North Carolina are having outstanding years, as is Virginia Tech. ... We had to ramp up the football piece of it. It was discussed, it was, 'How are we going to do this? Let's continue to challenge ourselves with an out-of-conference schedule that's been really, really good. And once you're in that, you've gotta win those games. That's when a little bit of the credibility will come forward.' We've remained in the conversation, which is I think the most important piece."

Knox hasn't been a major factor yet for the Buckeyes, but this could be another test of the depth of the roster at a position that doesn't boast much experience.

One of the nation's top 2018 prospects is scheduled to take an unofficial visit to TCU Saturday for the Horned Frogs' game against Oklahoma. Terrace Marshall of Bossier City (Louisiana) Parkway will be in Fort Worth for the game, and the 6-foot-3, 189-pound 2018 prospect ranks as the third-best junior receiver. He's also the top underclass prospect in Louisiana and the No. 28 player in the country, so his visit is a key one for TCU. Marshall has a long list of national offers, including Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU and others.
