Clemson ranked in Top 20 of ESPN's impactful CFB programs

ESPN has released its latest article ranking the most important programs in the history of college football as Clemson was ranked a respectable 17th overall.

"Clemson came within a game of doubling the school's championship trophy count," ESPN said. "Coach Danny Ford and the Tigers went undefeated in 1981. The Tigers are also without a Heisman Trophy winner, something current quarterback Deshaun Watson could change."

The Top 25 impactful schools in college football included Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, USC, Michigan, Texas, Nebraska, LSU, Penn State, Florida, Georgia, Florida State, Miami, Tennessee, Auburn, Clemson, Michigan State, UCLA, Texas A&M, Oregon, Stanford, Washington, Wisconsin, and Arkansas.

Clemson's in-state rival South Carolina was tied for 49th overall with Missouri in the rankings.
