Latest #1 ranking moves Clemson up to 3rd all-time

Lost in the hoopla of the first time as the preseason #1 was another historical mark reached by Clemson. It marked the 5th consecutive season that the Tigers have achieved the highest ranking in the AP Poll. That streak is tied for 3rd all-time behind Alabama @ 11 years (current), and Miami @ 7 years (1986-1992)

Considering the '81 Champions marked the only season Clemson ever reached #1 in first 79 years of the AP poll, it is yet another reminder and how remarkably consistent Dabo's group has been, and that it's a great day to be a Tiger.

Had it not been for the upset loss @ Syracuse in 2017, the preseason poll would've marked Clemson's 57th consecutive AP Top 5 ranking, which would have been the most consecutive Top 5 polls ever, topping the Alabama & Miami tie at 55 polls.


neat info! +1 and thanks!***

Great info but the last paragraph didn't make sense...

Clemson hasn't been a top 5 team 57 years in a row?

That sounds remarkably like Tim Bourret. Is that you, Tim?

Crazy cool. You’d expect to see ND or USC up there somewhere maybe? We’ll plan to make sure Bammer doesn’t achieve such a ranking this year.
