One of the knocks against the undefeated Clemson Tigers to this point has been what is considered an easy schedule. According to USA Today's Jeff Sagarin, the Tigers have played the 64th-most difficult schedule in 2019, which is expected to keep them out of the No. 1 spot when the College Football Playoff rankings are unveiled Tuesday night.
Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney unsurprisingly finds fault with that line of reasoning, dismissing it during his press conference Tuesday.
"Who has beat Alabama in SEC? In the past five years? Ain't many," he said, per Sam Hellman of 247Sports.
