Clemson OC Tony Elliott was a bit less certain on Wayne Gallman's availability. "He looks fine and we're hopeful," Elliott said. He said there's not a full determination though yet and they have a game plan for any option.

Clemson's Wayne Gallman said "I wanted someone to hurt him" after NC State's Dravious Wright delivered a hit that knocked Gallman unconscious. Gallman said he thought the hit was targeting, but he was told the ACC reviewed the play and said otherwise.

Wayne Gallman says Dravious Wright's hit on him that resulted in a concussion was, in his mind, intentionally dirty. "He led with his helmet," Gallman said. The play did not result in a penalty. Gallman said he was knocked unconscious and does not remember anything until he got back to the training room.

Clemson RB Wayne Gallman says he'll be ready to play vs Florida State. "I'm fine, I'm ready to go," he said. Gallman says he went through the concussion protocol last week and expects to be full-go in pads for Thursday's practice.

Tigers-Wolverines projected to CFP

Heading into Week 9, Mark Schlabach and Brett McMurphy predict Clemson and Michigan to clash at the Fiesta Bowl. But the guys don't agree on who will go on to play in the National Championship game. Bowl Projections

Jared Shanker ESPN Staff Writer 

A reminder of just how much football is left: The AP top five at Week 9 last season was Ohio State, Baylor, Clemson, LSU, and TCU. They were a combined 36-0. Only one made the College Football Playoff, and the other four ended the regular season with a combined record of 9-9. Don't expect chalk over the final few weeks.

The seven undefeated teams all play on the road this week, and five lost to their Saturday opponent in their last meeting. Second-ranked Michigan and No. 7 Nebraska are on three-game losing streaks to Michigan State and Wisconsin, respectively. The undefeateds (and their fans) might want to make it through this weekend before thinking playoff.
