The Playoff Committee's first set of rankings for 2019 were released moments ago and Clemson ranked outside the Top 4 sitting at No. 5. It’s the first time Clemson has been ranked outside the Top 4 in the past 24 releases.

Clemson is 9-0 with a primetime matchup NC State coming up this weekend in Raleigh. 

Clemson has been in the top four for 24 releases of the playoff rankings, second only to Alabama's 28 releases. The Tigers are currently the defending national champions and are riding the nation’s longest winning streak at 24 games.
