Countdown to Kickoff: A lot has changed in two years

It is crazy to think about now, but two years ago Clemson needed its backup quarterback to complete a fourth-down pass on the last drive to beat Syracuse or it might not have won the 2018 National Championship.

It is doubtful the top-ranked Tigers will have to worry about such things on Saturday when the Orange returns to Death Valley for a noon kick.

Clemson is a 46-point favorite to beat Syracuse this week, as the Orange has fallen dramatically from its 10-win season of two years ago. The question is not if Syracuse can beat Clemson?
