The Clemson football team (12-1, 7-1 ACC) was ranked the #2 overall seed in the College Football rankings released by the College Football Playoff committee on Sunday on ESPN.
The College Football Playoff Committee chose Alabama (#1 seed), Clemson (#2 seed), Ohio State (#3 seed) and Washington (#4 seed) as the four teams in the 2016 playoff.

Alabama is an 18 point favorite against Penn State, 14 point favorite against Washington, 14 point favorite against Ohio State, 10 point favorite against Clemson, and a nine-point favorite against Michigan in hypothetical neutral field games according to Las Vegas Superbook.
The Tigers had an impressive 42-35 rout of Virginia Tech to win back-to-back ACC titles on Saturday night.
