(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Clemson football has plenty of experience against SEC competition. Obviously, the Tigers famously find themselves facing off against Alabama just about every post-season at this point, and have the annual Palmetto Bowl end of season rivalry with South Carolina.Those aren’t the only teams that the Tigers have faced from the league, though. Clemson often schedules series against Georgia, last playing in 2013-14.Those two powers will face off again in 2024 in Atlanta, and have a four game home-and-home series set for 2029-30 and 2032-33. They’ve played 64 times, and while Georgia has a big record edge (42-18-4), obviously Clemson is currently peaking as a program.This year, Clemson finishes a home-and-home against Texas A&M, hosting the Aggies after a hard fought win at Kyle Field last season. In 2025-26, the Tigers face the other powerhouse Tigers that call Death Valley, home, LSU.In a new article naming college football’s “schedule superlatives,” ESPN‘s Chris Low says that Clemson “owns the SEC.”With the two national title wins over Alabama and recent dominance of the South Carolina rivalry, it is hard to dispute.For the second straight season, Clemson has two nonconference games against SEC foes — Texas A&M at home and South Carolina on the road. Dabo Swinney is 13-5 against SEC teams since the start of the 2012 season, which includes five wins over South Carolina, three wins over Auburn, two wins over Alabama and wins over Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M.SEC fans aren’t going to be super keen on it, but since Swinney’s program kicked it into high gear earlier in the decade, Clemson plays as well as any SEC powerhouse.[ESPN]last_img read more

first_img Shweta Ganjoo New DelhiJanuary 22, 2019UPDATED: January 23, 2019 11:00 IST Image Courtesy: OnLeaks/91 MobilesHIGHLIGHTSThe LG G8 is expected to run on Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor.The LG G8 is expected to come with an attachable screen.The LG G8 is likely to sport sound-on-display technology.The LG G8 has been in news for quite some time. The Korean electonic giant is tipped to launch its upcoming G-series flagship smartphone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019 that is scheduled to take place in Barcelona between February 25 and February 29. But a now, a new report suggests that the company is planning to launch LG G8 just before the mobile mega-fest.According to a report by ETNews, LG will launch the LG G7 ThinQ successor, which we reviewed last year, on February 24 between 10AM and 11AM. The publication, however, didn’t specify if the local time it has mentioned is as per the South Korean time or the time in Barcelona. After showcasing the phone, LG head of MC / HE business division, Kwon Bong-seok, is also likely to hold a meeting to discuss the company’s smartphone business strategy, the publication added.As we inch closer to the launch of the LG G8, here is everything we know about the South Korean tech giant’s upcoming smartphone so far:– The LG G8 is tipped to have Qualcomm’s flagship chipset– Snapdragon 855 in its core. While some reports initially did suggest that the phone could ship with Snapdragon 845, however, latest round of rumours, including the report by ETNews suggests that G8 would support LTE and be powered by Snapdragon 855 system-on-chip.– LG is expected to replace the customary earpiece in the front with the sound-on-display technology. Consequently, the phone would use a combination of bone-conduction technology and vibrations to produce sound.– Reports suggest that the LG G8 would come with a triple-rear camera setup with a 3D front camera. While an image render by tipster OnLeaks and 91 Mobiles last week suggested that the phone could sport a dual-rear camera setup. However, fresh report by ETNews suggests that the phone would come with three lenses at the back- a feature it would borrow from the LG V40 ThinQ, that was in India recently.advertisement– LG’s upcoming phone is also likely to come with a second screen. According to a report by CNET, the LG G8, (that is, if the company decides to keep the name) would come with a screen attatchable screen. However, at this point it remains uncertain how the screen would attatch itself with the body of the phone or if the company would ship the screen separately from the phone.– As far as the notch is concerned, most reports so have remained undecided on whether the LG G8 would sport a conventional notch or if would opt for a water-drop notch instead. Howeever, the image render by OnLeaks suggests that the phone could sport a traditional notch just like its predecessor. But then, LG’s global PR head, Ken Hong tweeted that the image renders weren’t true. So for now, there is no clarity on that front.– On the software front, the LG G8 is expected to ship with the latest variant of Google’s mobile operating system- Android 9.0.– Other details includes a 6GB RAM with an internal memory that can be expanded further using a 2TB microSD card.With rumours talking about the LG G8 sporting a second attachable screen and sound-on-display technology, the phone sure seems a ball of mystery. But we know more when the company unveils the phone next month.ALSO READ: | Is this how LG G8 would look like?ALSO READ: | LG G8 could come with a second attachable screenALSO READ: | LG G8 might be announced at MWC 2019ALSO READ: | LG G8 could skip speakers to use this queer technology insteadGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
