The 2014 Clemson Tigers finished their season with an impressive 10-3 record. After losing two of its first three games, Clemson won nine of its last ten games. Clemson capped its season off by routing the Oklahoma Sooners, 40-6 in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Sophomore wide receiver Mike Williams caught nine passes for 112 yards and one touchdown.

After losing Jameis Winston to the NFL Draft, Florida State will not be as good while Clemson will need to figure out a way to slow down Georgia Tech’s explosive triple-option attack.
