Notre Dame’s first appearance in the #CollegeFootballPlayoffs since its inception four years ago. Conversely, this marks Clemson’s fourth straight playoff appearance. Each time, Clemson was the one or two seed and it is 2-1 SU and ATS in playoff openers. https://t.co/N71i8UcsDZ

I absolutely agree with this (and with John). Clemson and Notre Dame’s resumes are very similar, and in fact ND’s may be superior. A healthy Book gives ND a shot against them.

"If you're not Notre Dame, you don't like Notre Dame…This team is not the '12 team. This team isn't '15. Who cares what the spread has to say? I guess we'll find out on December 29th." – Drue Tranquill
ND is already big underdogs to Clemson, but that's just fine with them. pic.twitter.com/A4f4KmyAGD

Brandon Wimbush and Kelly Bryant started the seasons at quarterback for Notre Dame and Clemson. When the two teams meet on Dec. 29, it’ll be Ian Book and Trevor Lawrence at QB.
