CLEMSON, S.C. -- Clemson cornerback Cordrea Tankersley wants to finish the season the right way.He is the lone returning starter from the third-ranked Tigers secondary last year, coming back for a final season and another shot at the national championship.Tankersley can help Clemson (9-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference; CFP No. 2 ) take a step toward that goal Saturday against Pitt (5-4, 2-3), a win giving the Tigers the ACC Atlantic and a spot in the leagues title game.It (feels) like we just started spring workouts last week, Tankersley said. Its really flying by now that its my senior season.Tankersley and Clemsons other seniors will take their solo run down Memorial Stadiums hill as part of senior day festivities. He understands theres much more to play for, starting with the game vs. the Panthers.Tankersley, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound defensive back considered a potential first-rounder in the NFL draft, feels he will leave the program better than when he arrived and deserving of their No. 2 spot in College Football Playoff ranking.This program is set basically forever, Tankersley said. We can play the best, Alabama, Michigan, you name it.Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said his team began the championship phase of its season last week with a 54-0 victory over Syracuse. He said the Tigers have stayed focused in preparation and risen to whatever challenge they face.These guys have really bought into what we do and how we do it, he said. Its just been a fun team.Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi is hoping to stop the fun times this week. He said his team is building itself in Clemsons model, starting with players who understand what it takes to succeed on the field.Guys that go out and play with heart and get after it and give you everything theyve got, have a chance, Narduzzi said.---Some other things to watch when third-ranked Clemson plays Pitt:SAYING GOODBYE: Seniors wont be the only ones taking a final home bow for Clemson on Saturday. Tigers coach Dabo Swinney said four juniors -- quarterback Deshaun Watson, tailback Wayne Gallman and receivers Mike Williams and Artavis Scott -- will be honored, too, since their plans are to forego their final seasons and turn pro.TURNOVER TROUBLE: The Panthers were able to overcome their various defensive issues early in the season by showing a nose for the ball, creating nine turnovers over their first five games. Those kinds of plays have disappeared in recent weeks. Pitt has taken it away just once since the first weekend of October.STELLAR PLAYERS: The matchup between Pitt and Clemson -- the only time they played previously was the 1977 Gator Bowl -- also features the past two ACC players of the year in Panthers running back James Conner and Tigers quarterback Deshaun Watson. Conner has 712 yards and 11 TDs this fall. Watson has thrown 24 touchdown passes, two behind ACC leader Lamar Jackson of Louisville.HISTORY LESSON: Pitts last landscape shaking moment came in 2007, when the Panthers went to rival West Virginia and pulled off a 13-9 upset to spoil the Mountaineers chance of making the BCS title game. Dont expect Narduzzi to dig into the archives, however, in search of motivation. Today is what we sell, not what happened back in 1978 or `76 or `09, he said. Its what happens, you know, this Saturday. Weve just got to play the best football we can on Saturday. Nothing else matters.OH CANADA: The Panthers are averaging a robust 37 points a game (third in the ACC) despite being limited in the passing game, a testament to first-year offensive coordinator Matt Canadas creativity. Pitt uses a variety of misdirection and jet sweeps to get wide receivers involved in the running game. Offensive tackle Brian ONeill also has a pair of touchdowns this season out of unique formations that have helped the 6-foot-6, 300-pound converted tight end get open.---AP Sports Writer Will Graves contributed to this report.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org John Tavares Jersey .

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky enters Saturday nights opener against Southern Mississippi with more urgency than usual.The Wildcats realize how critical every game is to them to reach the six-win threshold and become bowl eligible after consecutive 5-7 finishes. They also would like to build some momentum heading into next weeks Southeastern Conference opener at Florida.But that doesnt mean the Wildcats are looking past Southern Mississippi.Kentucky is facing a Southern Miss squad eager to follow up a 9-5 season and bowl appearance by upsetting a Power Five conference school. While losing to the Golden Eagles wont necessarily break the Wildcats season, their quest to reach the postseason for the first time since 2010 would become a little harder.Kentucky coach Mark Stoops understands the importance but maintains a positive approach.We do not put any more pressure on ourselves, Stoops said. We just need to go out there and do what weve been doing and have that great focus and attention to detail. Im excited about that myself because I know well be prepared.Southern Miss is kicking off its season under new coach Jay Hopson. He is replacing Todd Monken, who left to become offensive coordinator with the NFLs Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Hopson previously served as the Golden Eagles defensive backs coach (2001-03) and defensive coordinator (05-07) before going on to guide Alcorn State to a 32-17 record and consecutive SWAC titles the past four years.Adding more intrigue to the opener is the return of Shannon Dawson as Southern Miss offensive coordinator after holding the same job with Kentucky last season.Though Dawson was criticized for the Wildcats late-season struggles and play-calling, Stoops and players had kind words for Dawson. The familiarity between Dawson and his former team could make things interesting.Anytime you open with an SEC opponent, you have your hands full, Hopson said. Kentucky is a well-coached football team with outstanding players.dddddddddddd. We know weve got to be ready this week.---Here are some things to watch when Kentucky hosts Southern Mississippi:BARKERS MOMENT: Kentucky sophomore quarterback Drew Barker has drawn raves from teammates and coaches about his maturity and command of the offense and huddle. Hell start his first opener for the Wildcats since replacing Patrick Towles late last season but hasnt seemed fazed by the hype and expectations. Ive had some playing time, so I kind of know what to expect, Barker said. Its just building off that confidence. I just cant wait to get back out there because it seems like its been two years.MULLENS BIG ARM: Southern Miss senior quarterback Nick Mullens threw for 4,476 yards and 38 touchdowns last season and is Conference USAs preseason offensive player of the year. He not only puts the Wildcats pass rush on notice, but the secondary as well. You cant take any plays off, free safety Marcus McWilson said. If they catch you slipping, thats when they get that one (play) and we cant let that happen.DEFENSIVE DEPTH: As if Kentucky didnt have enough holes to fill on defense, tackle Regie Meant left the team early in camp for undisclosed personal reasons and safety Darius West was lost for the season with a left knee injury. Not only will the Wildcats look to younger players again to provide depth, they need everyone to stay healthy and contribute.SERIES RENEWAL: Kentucky is 2-0 against Southern Miss in a series last played 30 years ago in Lexington. The Wildcats won that game 32-0 and have outscored the Golden Eagles 103-7 overall.---Follow Gary B.
