Clemson benched a quarterback who got them 12 wins last year, rolled out a freshman and still ended up as the No. 2 seed in the College Football Playoff. That's overcoming adversity.

Relying on a strong running game, the Tigers finished fifth in scoring while leading the country in yards per carry. Clemson's defense remained stout as well, ending the pre-bowl season only allowing 13.7 points per game. Notre Dame won't know what to do with this team.

Notre Dame is back and they're putting the rest of the college football on notice.

People are going to complain that Notre Dame didn't have to play in a conference title game, but the Fighting Irish still played a tough schedule where they faced eight teams who were, at one point during the season, ranked in the AP Pollincluding four teams that are currently ranked. Notre Dame's defense has carried the team to this point, only allowing 17.2 points per game.

Clemson hasn't faced a top-25 defense, let alone a top-10 one. The Irish are going to stuff the Tigers.
