CLEMSON -- As the Tigers reach the home stretch, they're sitting pretty for at least a BCS bowl game berth, perhaps somewhere in Miami, New Orleans or maybe even Glendale.

To do that, though, the No. 8 team in the BCS Standings is probably going to have to win the rest of its games. Of course, you know what that means for Clemson; it's going to have to snap its vexing struggles at South Carolina on the final day of November.

Until then, though, Clemson still has two more ACC Coastal games (Saturday at Virginia, Nov. 14 vs. Georgia Tech) as well as Military Appreciation Day against The Citadel Nov. 23 to precede that trip to Columbia.

Are the Tigers in good shape right now? Chat about it with beat writer Aaron Brenner at 3 p.m. Monday. If you can't make it at that time, either tweet your question to @Aaron_Brenner or e-mail it to, and it'll be addressed in the chat window.
