With 16 ACC games left in the regular season – and following an 0-2 start in league play - there's no reason for Clemson to hit the panic button.

If that record falls to 0-3 this afternoon, however, Brad Brownell's players will be a step closer to having a reason.

A disappointing home loss to Florida State a week ago was followed up by a road thrashing at Duke on Tuesday. With Virginia (11-4, 1-1 ACC) providing the opposition today at Littlejohn Coliseum, Clemson (8-6, 0-2) finds itself in need of a win in the worst way.
