Clemson tops ESPN's preseason Football Power Index again


by -

Clemson sits atop of ESPN's Football Power Index for a third-straight preseason.

The advanced metric weighs a number of factors, with returning production at QB certainly a big one with its top-two-rated QBs manning the top two teams in the ranking, Clemson (Trevor Lawrence) and Ohio State (Justin Fields).

Oklahoma, Alabama and Penn State round out their top-5.

ESPN analyst Cole Cubelic filled out the rest of their top-10 Monday morning on social media with Wisconsin, Texas, Texas A&M, Notre Dame and Georgia.

As noted, Clemson was No. 1 going into last season, followed by Alabama, Georgia and LSU.

ESPN FPI top-5

1. Clemson - 27.3 rating

2. Ohio State - 26.9

3. Oklahoma - 23.5

4. Alabama - 23.3

5. Penn State - 22.7
