Clemson ranked #1 in CBSSport.com's Power Rankings

CBSSports.com released its latest article with its post-spring Top 25 power rankings and Clemson was listed as the top team in the nation.

"Nothing happened in the spring to push the Tigers out of the top spot," CBSSports.com said. "Let's recap: Nick Saban needed to execute a perfect onside kick in the fourth quarter to tilt the national title game his way. The Tigers still scored 40 and are right there in 2016. Despite the loss of Kevin Dodd and Shaq Lawson on defense, the backups got plenty of snaps. Oh yeah, there's this guy named Deshaun Watson. The Tigers will be a prohibitive favorite to win ACC -- they have the nation's longest Power Five conference winning streak (nine games). From there, a CFP redo is more than possible."

ACC was well represented by four teams on the list including Clemson (#1), Florida State (#13), Miami (#15) and Louisville (#23).

The Top 25 power rankings were Clemson, Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma, Michigan, Baylor, Notre Dame, Stanford, Michigan, Houston, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, Florida State, USC, Miami, Iowa, Oregon, Ohio State, Georgia, Arkansas, Ole Miss, TCU, Louisville, San Diego State and Washington State.
