Clemson ranked in Top 3 of Fox Sports' preseason Top 25

by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson is ranked #3 in Fox Sports' Top 25 preseason football rankings on Wednesday behind only Florida State (#2) and defending National Champion Alabama (#1).

"The Tigers should be special on offense, not just because of star QB Deshaun Watson but RB Wayne Gallman and a stacked receiving corps led by Artavis Scott and Mike Williams," Fox Sports said. "It’s hard to believe last season’s Top 20 defense won’t take a step back after losing six starters early to the NFL. Secondary, in particular, is a big question. But Clemson’s line will be strong inside with Christian Wilkins and Carlos Watkins."

The Top 25 rankings were Alabama, Florida State, Clemson, LSU, Oklahoma, TCU, Ohio State, Michigan, Tennessee, Louisville, Stanford, Notre Dame, Washington, UCLA, Iowa, Washington State, Utah, Ole Miss, Michigan State, Houston, North Carolina, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Florida, and Pittsburgh.

The Tigers will open the season with SEC foe Auburn on Saturday, September 3 at 9:00 p.m. EST.
