The belief is that if Clemson defeats Notre Dame on Saturday, both will make this year's playoff. In his Sunday presser, Brian Kelly said he's not worried about the playoffs and is focused on Clemson and the ACC title game.
"We got our hands full with really focusing on this acc championship so the playoffs take care of themselves. We can't control them. [...] We're thinking about winning the acc championship so all of our time, all of our energy is about this game and winning this football game."
