Renfrow hopes to have another big season

Fresh off a national championship, Clemson is ranked No. 7 in Sports Illustrated's Preseason Top 25 College Football rankings released on Wednesday morning.

Clemson will have games this season against SI ranked No. 2 Florida State, No. 10 Auburn, No. 14 Louisville and No. 24 Virginia Tech.

"A visit from Auburn (Sept. 9) offers a shot at a big nonconference win early, and Clemson hosts Florida State (Nov. 11)," said. "Still, the Tigers’ ACC schedule is littered with land mines, including road trips to Louisville (Sept. 16), Virginia Tech (Sept. 30) and N.C. State (Nov. 4)."

Clemson will start the defense of its title on September 2 at home against Kent State.

The Top 10 in the preseason rankings were Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State, Oklahoma State, USC, Oklahoma, Clemson, Penn State, Washington, and Auburn.
