BCS bowl contenders
Clemson: The Tigers will have one of the country’s best offenses, led by quarterback Cullen Harper and tailbacks James Davis and C.J. Spiller. Can Tommy Bowden finally get it done?
Virginia Tech: The Hokies have to replace a plethora of stars on defense and tailback Branden Ore, who was dismissed from the team. Frank Beamer will need to produce one of his better coaching jobs.
