Clemson ranked in Top 25 of the All-Time AP Poll

The Associated Press has been around for over 80 years and released on Tuesday afternoon their All-Time AP Top 100 College Football Poll and Clemson was ranked a respectable #22 overall.

The rankings were based on the following criteria: poll appearances (1 pt), number 1 rankings (1 pt), and AP Championships (10 points).

Clemson received 411 points which listed them at the #22 rankings as they have made an appearance in the AP Poll 387 times for 35.09%. The best decade for the Tigers were the glorious 1980's which Clemson was included in the polls 58.29% of the time. In stark contrast, the 1960's were a dark time as the Tigers made the polls only 3.97%.

"Before the Tigers national championship season in 1981, their best ranking was No. 5 on Sept. 21, 1959," AP said.

The Top 25 schools in the All-Time AP Top 25 were Ohio State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, Alabama, USC, Nebraska, Michigan, Texas, Florida State, Florida, LSU, Penn State, Miami, Tennessee, Georgia, Auburn, UCLA, Texas A&M, Michigan State, Washington, Arkansas, Clemson, Pittsburgh, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

Other notable rankings included Georgia Tech (#26), Virginia Tech (#31), North Carolina (#38), South Carolina (#48), Virginia (#52), Duke (#53), North Carolina State (#56), Boston College (#57), Louisville (#62), Wake Forest (#80), and East Carolina (#88).
