The unexpected loss to unranked Pittsburgh did not eliminate Clemson from contention for one of the four spots in the College Football Playoff, especially considering what else transpired last weekend with Michigan and Washington also losing for the first time.But it did reduce considerably the margin of error for the Tigers.Were still driving the car, Clemson senior center Jay Guillermo said. Were just driving with one hand now.And the Tigers (9-1 6-1 ACC), who dropped to No. 4 in the CFP and No. 5 in the AP poll, better keep that hand on the wheel as they take on unranked Wake Forest (6-4, 3-3 ACC) Saturday at 7 p.m. at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem.A win for the Tigers in their ACC finale to be telecast on ESPN will clinch the Atlantic Division title and put them in the ACC Championship Game against either Virginia Tech or North Carolina from the Coastal Division. The Tigers finish the regular season at home against South Carolina the next week.Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is taking a bit of a philosophical approach to his teams first setback of the year.A little cough syrup for everybody is good for you from time to time, he said.Clemsons dose was delivered courtesy of a late 48-yard field goal that gave the Panthers the 43-42 win, ending the Tigers 21-game home winning streak.But with a record that features four wins over currently ranked teams -- No. 3 Louisville, No. 17 Florida State, No. 18 Auburn, and No. 25 Troy -- the Tigers look in good shape of making the playoffs for a second consecutive year -- if they take care of business.Every goal that we have is still right there in front of us -- every single goal, Swinney said. Theres a lot out there for this team. We cant sit around and cry about this one. We need to learn from it.The Tigers can help their cause by improving their performance in key areas like turnovers and red zone performance.They are even for the season in turnover margin in all games but are minus-3 in ACC play with 10 turnovers lost and only seven gained.Quarterback Deshaun Watson threw three interceptions in the loss to Pittsburgh, one deep in Panther territory that denied the Tigers at least a chance of a field goal that would have given them an 11-point cushion with less than six minutes left in the game.The Tigers rank 94th in scoring inside the 20-yard line and have been plagued by turnovers when on the cusp of the end zone, fumbling twice and throwing four interceptions this season.Not finishing in the red zone, thats kind of been an Achilles heel for us, Swinney said, and it kind of bit us in the butt Saturday.Wake Forest is third in the conference in red zone efficiency in conference games and is No. 1 in turnover margin with 15 takeaways (five interceptions, 10 recovered fumbles) to just 10 turnovers in six league games.That has helped coach Dave Clawsons club achieve bowl eligibility in his fourth season with the Demon Deacons.The Deacons were eliminated from the Atlantic Division race with their 44-12 loss to Louisville last week but still can have a huge impact on the race while improving their own bowl stock with a win over the Tigers. That would pin a second conference loss on Clemson and put Louisville, which has finished conference play at 7-1, in the ACC Championship Game.We want to play in November games that have meaning, Clawson said. We know were going to have to play extremely well. Theres a very small margin for error when you play a team of this quality.The Deacons will have to jack up their offense to have a shot. They didnt have a touchdown in their loss to the Cardinals, but led 12-10 when the fourth quarter began. Quarterback John Wolford passed for only 141 yards and the Deacons rushed for just 73.Weve got to play really well on offense, play keep-away a little bit, Clawson said. By the same token on defense, if we can generate turnovers, get third down stops, thats going to be really, really important for us. Nike Flex Shoes Online . Collaros, 25, was solid last season, posting a 5-2 record as the starter while incumbent Ricky Ray was injured. Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day. Discount Nike Flex . The third-ranked Ivanovic, who won the event in 2008 and 10, served five aces and broke Wickmayer, also a former winner in 2009, five times. "The result looked easier than it really was," Ivanovic said. . The lawyers filed a 33-page amended complaint Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan, expanding on the suit originally filed Oct. 3 in New York Supreme Court. Arbitrator Fredric Horowitz last week refused to compel Selig to testify in the grievance, and Rodriguez then walked out of the hearing without testifying. Cheap Nike Flex China . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday night. Cheap Nike Flex Shoes . Roman Josi had a goal and an assist to lead the Predators to a 4-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Monday night. The Western Bulldogs have finished their triumphant AFL premiership season with the most favourable free-kick differential of any team in the competition.The Bulldogs were awarded 99 more free kicks than they conceded over the course of the season, shading North Melbourne (+71) and Collingwood (+39).Most teams gave away more free kicks than they earned, with Port Adelaide (-59), Greater Western Sydney (-54) and Geelong (-41) owning the worst differentials.The Dogs were awarded 20 free kicks compared to Sydneys eight during their grand final victory at the MCG on Saturday, with several decisions clear errors on behalf of the umpires.To say it cost Sydney the game would be unfair, particularly considering the most contentious calls were made prior to a game-defining stretch in the fourth quarter in which the Bulldogs were simply too good for the Swans.But the lopsided count - which left the Bulldogs free-kick differential for the finals at +31 - raised eyebrows and left the Swans privately fuming.Particularly contentious was an incident early in the final term when Swans captain Dan Hannebery had his legs taken out by a sliding Easton Wood.Hannebery suffered a knee injury and played no further part in the game, while the umpires waved play on and ruled the midfielder wasnt infringed.Taking out the legs no longer a free kick... , Adelaide midfielder Brad Crouch posted on Twitter after the decision.AFL umpires boss Luke Balll conceded the officials may have got some calls wrong in trying circumstances.dddddddddddd.Certainly a couple of them look like they probably could have been contact below the knee, he told Channel Nines Footy Show.You call it as you see it, and it was a brutal game - 190 tackles. Its bloody hard.Swans coach John Longmire could only laugh when asked after the game about the lopsided free-kick count.Look, the Doggies were good, he said.All we can ask for is that they get paid both ways. Id have to sit back and have a look at it in the cool light of day before I can comment on that.The Bulldogs also benefited from a contentious decision in the dying seconds of their narrow preliminary final win over GWS, with umpires declining to award the Giants a 50-metre penalty when Jason Johannisen infringed on Tom Scullys protected zone.Adelaide coach Don Pyke publicly complained about the lopsided free-kick count in the Bulldogs 15-point win over the Crows in round seven, prompting an angry response from counterpart Luke Beveridge.We train and play a certain way - its a little bit disrespectful to our players and how hard they go at the ball, Beveridge said.You have young kids who, in their second year, are putting their head over the ball and attacking the game. If you deserve a free kick, you get one.
