Clemson, S.C.—Clemson has been named the AutoNation National Team of the Week by the Football Writers Association of America. The No. 1 ranked Tigers defeated then No. 8 North Carolina, 45-37 in the ACC Championship game on Saturday night.

It is just the third time Clemson has won the award. Clemson was honored by the Football Writers Association for its 2003 victory over Florida State and its 2011 win over the Seminoles.

Clemson clinched the No. 1 seed in the College Football Playoff with its ACC title win over the Tar Heels. It gave Clemson a 13-0 record this year, including 9-0 against ACC teams. The victory gave Clemson three wins over teams in the final top 10 of the College Football Playoff poll, the only team in the nation that could make that claim.

Clemson will face No. 4 seed Oklahoma in the Capital One Orange Bowl on December 31 at 4 p.m.
