Clemson, SC---Clemson's football team is ranked 16th in the nation
according to the latest USA Today Sagarin rankings. The rankings,
which include the bowl games of Saturday, were released on USA
Today's website on Saturday evening. The final rankings will be done
after the Sugar Bowl game between Oklahoma and LSU on Monday morning.

Clemson's number-16 ranking is its highest in the Sagarin
computer rankings since the 2000 season when Clemson was ranked 15th.
Clemson was 45th in 2002, an example of the improvement the Tiger
program made in 2003.

Clemson concluded the season on Friday with a 27-14 victory
over Tennessee. It was Clemson's third win over a team currently in
the top 30 of the Sagarin rankings. Clemson's other wins over teams
currently in the top 30 are over Florida State and Virginia.

With just one bowl game left, it is apparent that Clemson
will finish in the top 25 of the Sagarin Computer poll for the third
time in five years under Tommy Bowden. Clemson was 24th in 1999 and
15th in 2000.


Clemson's overall schedule is ranked 26th in the nation. Clemson's
highest ever schedule ranking in the final Sagarin ratings is
seventh in 1999.
