Clemson ranked in Top 20 of SI.com rankings
Will Clemson finish the season ranked in the top 20?
SI.com released its Top 25 college football team preview and Clemson was ranked #16th overall.
Florida State was the only other ACC school in the top 25 (#1 overall).
It won’t take long to figure out whether the Tigers are an elite team: They face Georgia in Athens in Week 1 and play at Florida State in their third game, on Sept. 20. Home games against North Carolina (Sept. 27) and Louisville (Oct. 11) highlight the ACC schedule before Clemson squares off with cross-state rival South Carolina in the last week of the season. The Tigers have lost five straight to their neighbors from the SEC by a combined score of 155-71.
