Clemson ranked in Top 10 of ESPN's FPI

Clemson (7-0, 4-0 ACC) is ranked 8th in the nation in the latest ESPN 2015 Football Power Index.

ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI) is a measure of team strength that is meant to be the best predictor of a team's performance for a season. FPI represents how many points above or below average a team is, and projected results are based on 10,000 simulations of the rest of the season using FPI, results to date, and the remaining schedule.

Clemson is projected to win 11.8 wins and 0.9 losses for the season according to the FPI.

The Tigers have a 32.6% chance to win all of their remaining regular season games, 61.0% chance to win the ACC and a strength of schedule remaining of 45 according to the Football Power Index. It also has the greatest chance of any Power 5 school to finish the season as a conference champ with < 2 losses at 56%.

Clemson's full schedule is projected to rank 31st which is ahead of several elite schools including TCU (41st), Baylor (56th) and Ohio State (58th).

The Clemson football team is leading the nation in team efficiencies with an overall rating of 90.2. Team efficiencies are based on the point contributions of each unit to the team's scoring margin, on a per-play basis.

Shockingly, The Trojans are a three-loss team that is currently ranked #5 and Tennessee is ranked #12 with a 3-4 record according to the Football Power Index.

The ESPN FPI Top 10 list includes Baylor, Oklahoma, TCU, OSU, USC, Alabama, LSU, Clemson, Notre Dame and Ole Miss.
