Sunday's most popular speculative buzz has Clemson playing in the Orange Bowl against Alabama.
If it happens, Dabo Swinney and his Tigers won't flinch.
Swinney believes it's exactly the kind of opportunity Clemson has earned during the course of its 10-2 season.
"Are you serious? We absolutely want to be in the BCS," said Swinney, in response to a question during his Sunday evening teleconference about whether he'd prefer a lower-tier bowl with a better chance to win. "That's a no-brainer. That's not even a question.
"We're still one of the best teams in the country, and that's a fact. We're one of the most consistent teams in the country. I wish we could win 'em all, but there are only a couple of undefeated teams, and we've got two really tough losses. And in those two losses, we've had 10 turnovers in those two games.
"That's why ya'll hear me talk about the turnover margin all the time. When we win the turnover margin, we usually win."
Swinney says the Tigers want the best possible bowl against the best possible opponent.
"We want the best post-season that we can get," Swinney said. "I think we should be in the BCS. We were in the top 10 for 14 straight weeks this year, which is a school record, and we're just out of the top 10 now.
"Our losses have been to two really good teams, one of them probably playing for the national championship. We're a team that's exciting to watch and a team that can play with anybody in the country.
"We want to be in the BCS, and we believe we deserve to be."
