CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Clemson Tigers will take center stage Thursday as the Atlantic Coast Conference turns its attention the Atlantic Division at the preseason media days.
The Tigers are 40-4 over the past three seasons, winning three straight conference titles under coach Dabo Swinney.
The biggest question mark for the Tigers is who’ll handle the quarterback duties this year — incumbent Kelly Bryant or Trevor Lawrence, widely considered the No. 1 overall recruit in 2018.
North Carolina State, which finished 6-2 in the conference last season, is expected to provide the biggest competition for the Tigers.
Wake Forest, Boston College and Louisville all finished 4-4 in conference play last year, while Florida State was 3-5. Syracuse was 2-6, although the Orange did upset Clemson 27-24 at the Carrier Dome.
