CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - As crazy as it sounds, this season is about to get tougher for No. 8 Clemson.
Sure, the Tigers went from obscurity to the top 10 with three straight wins - over defending national champion Auburn, rising Florida State and Atlantic Coast Conference champ Virginia Tech. But anyone paying attention knows that Clemson (5-0, 2-0 ACC) has a knack for big wins followed by letdowns, something the Tigers hope to avoid when they play Boston College (1-4, 0-2) on Saturday at Death Valley.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney knows you don't have to look far to notice the program's tendency to play up - and down - to its competition. Swinney job this week is to see the Tigers don't follow three wins over ranked teams by stumbling against the Eagles.
