Tigers remain atop AP Poll

Clemson remained at No. 1 in the latest AP Poll that was released Sunday.

The Tigers are coming off of a convincing 38-3 victory over then-seventh-ranked Miami in the ACC Championship Game on Saturday night.

Clemson totaled 331 yards of offense to Miami’s 214, while the Tigers’ defense limited the Hurricanes to 10 first downs and a 3-of-16 clip on third down. Clemson also forced three turnovers and registered four sacks.

Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant completed 23-of-29 passes for 252 yards and a touchdown, and also added a rushing touchdown. Travis Etienne, Tavien Feaster and Adam Choice each ran for a touchdown, as well, and Deon Cain caught the Tigers’ lone touchdown pass.

Clemson also stayed at No. 1 in the final College Football Playoff rankings that were unveiled Sunday. The Tigers will take on No. 4 Alabama in the CFP semifinal at the Suger Bowl in New Orleans on New Year’s Day.
