Where is Clemson in the preseason AP Top 25 poll?

By

The preseason AP Top 25 college football poll was released around noon ET on Monday.

Clemson is ranked No. 4 in the preseason AP Top 25, behind No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Georgia.

The SEC has six teams in the preseason AP Top 25 (Alabama, No. 1; Georgia, No. 3; Texas A&M, No. 6; Arkansas, No. 19; Kentucky, No. 20; Ole Miss, No. 21), while the ACC has five (Clemson, No. 4; NC State, No. 13; Miami, No. 16; Pitt, No. 17; Wake Forest, No. 22).

The ACC is the lone conference with four teams ranked in the top 17.

Clemson, which recorded its 11th consecutive double-digit win season with a 10-3 finish in 2021, was picked as the ACC preseason favorite in a poll of 164 ACC media members in late July. The Tigers were also tabbed likely Atlantic Division winners.

Clemson opens the 2022 season against Georgia Tech at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Monday, Sept. 5 (8 p.m., ESPN).
