Clemson listed as a Dark Horse Playoff Contender

Athlon Sports has released its latest article ranking College Football's Top 10 Dark Horse Playoff Contenders and the Clemson football team was ranked #2 on the list.

"The path to an ACC Championship isn’t overly difficult for the Tigers. Georgia Tech and Florida State visit Death Valley, and the Tigers catch Notre Dame at home in non-conference play," Athlon Sports said. "Even though Chad Morris is now the head coach at SMU, the offense should continue to perform at a high level behind quarterback Deshaun WatsonDeshaun Watson

and one of the nation’s top groups of skill talent. The defense returns only two starters, but coordinator Brent Venables should keep this unit near the top of the ACC."

Clemson has had four straight 10-win seasons, a first for the program since Clemson had four straight 10-win seasons between 1987-90 and it also the first time the Tigers have won three straight bowl games since 1986-90.

The other schools on the Top 10 list include Notre Dame (#1), Ole Miss (#3), LSU (#4), Boise State (#5), Oklahoma (#6), Texas A&M (#7), Arizona State (#8), UCLA (#9) and Stanford (#10).
