Despite calls from some that the College Football Playoff should be expanded from four to at least eight teams, executive director Bill Hancock told ESPN there's been no talk of expansion. "It's hard to be there".

"Obviously you start with their defensive front, outstanding front four". They let them hang around too long, and suffered their second heartbreaking loss to Nick Saban and company this calendar year.

Clemson won the 2015 game against the Irish in a driving rainstorm, and Swinney said he is looking forward to once again matching up against a traditional football power in Notre Dame.

The rest of the New Year's Six bowl matchups are UCF vs. LSU in the Fiesta Bowl; Florida vs. MI in the Peach Bowl; Ohio State vs. Washington in the Rose Bowl; and Texas vs. Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.

But Clemson ranks fifth in the nation in points per game with 45.4 and second in the nation in points per game surrendered with 13.7. The last time the Irish and the Tigers met was in 2015, when the then-undefeated Irish travelled to SC to take on Clemson. "We just appreciate all the hospitality and all the hard work that goes into making it such a great event for our players".

The College Football Playoff semifinals are set.

This time, the Irish are taking nothing for granted.

Georgia and Texas both suffered heartbreaking defeats in their respective conference championship games, but each earned a Sugar Bowl bid as a consolation prize. "We've got to live with it", Narduzzi said. "They're the best we've seen, to answer that question".
