The Tigers have only one loss to a Florida State team that was a Top-Five-ranked team at the time. It was a game where many thought the Tigers would be outmatched against their tough defense, yet they held a lead for most of the game and put up 37 points and over 500 points against it.
But heading into the final stretch of the season, and currently sitting at 5-1, what does this ranking mean for the Clemson Tigers?
