Clemson ranked #1 in preseason Top 25 rankings

Fox Sports released its latest article on Monday afternoon with its post-spring preseason college football Top 25 rankings and Clemson was listed as the top team in the nation.

"The schedule is bookended by a pair of SEC opponents -- at Auburn for the opener and then against arch-rival South Carolina -- but I don't expect either to be a top-25 team this year," Bruce Feldman said. "The Tigers get Louisville at home, where Clemson has a 16-game home winning streak entering 2016, the second-longest active streak in the nation. The toughest test will be against a talented, fast FSU team on the road on Oct. 29, but Watson torched the Noles' D last year for over 100 yards rushing and almost 300 passing -- and last year he was actually even sharper on the road than he was in home games."

ACC schools in the Top 25 were Clemson (#1), Florida State (#4), Louisville (#12) and North Carolina (#24).

The full Top 25 ranking were Clemson, LSU, Alabama, Florida State, Michigan, Houston, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Ohio State, Notre Dame, TCU, Louisville, Washington, Iowa, Texas A&M, Stanford, Baylor, Ole Miss, Georgia, Michigan State, Oregon, Washington State, USC, North Carolina and UCLA.
