According to ESPN's FPI, the Tigers most difficult game of the 2019 season comes at Williams-Brice Stadium against the Gamecocks

Clemson Tigers ESPN FPI rank: 1

Toughest game on schedule, per FPI: at South Carolina (85.1 percent chance to win)

Why: Despite heavy NFL Draft losses on defense, don't expect Clemson's dominance on that side of the football to cease. And with the top-ranked offense nationally per ESPN's FPI, the Tigers should roll week to week back into the College Football Playoff as the defending national champions. Keep an eye on quarterback Trevor Lawrence and tailback Travis Etienne. Those two are going to put on a show and could steal Heisman votes away from one another this fall.
