Alabama is the new National Champions again with their comeback 26-23 overtime win over Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship.
Clemson finished No. 4 in the final AP Poll on Tuesday morning but appear to be among the main favorites to hoist the National Championship trophy in 2018.
ESPN released its Way-Too-Early Top 25 rankings for 2018 on Tuesday morning and Clemson was ranked No. 2 on the list behind only Alabama.
"The Tigers lost their rubber match to Alabama, falling 24-6 in a CFP semifinal at the Allstate Sugar Bowl, which spoiled their chances of winning back-to-back national championships," ESPN.com said. "But if we've learned anything the past three seasons, it's that Dabo Swinney's program is here to stay. Much of the Tigers' offense returns in 2018. One burning question: Can quarterback Kelly Bryant hold off incoming freshman Trevor Lawrence, the No. 1 pocket passer and No. 2 player overall in the ESPN 300?"
The Top 25 teams were Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Georgia, Wisconsin, Miami, Washington, Michigan State, West Virginia, Penn State, Auburn, Michigan, Virginia Tech, USC, TCU, Boise State, Stanford, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, UCF, Florida State, LSU, Texas, and South Carolina.
