Athlon released its preseason top 25. Clemson is #1
Alabama, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Penn State round out the top 5.
"Dabo Swinney'sTigers are Athlon’s pick to win it all in 2020. Clemson has made an appearance in four out of the last five playoffs, won two out of the last three national titles, and has lost a total of five games over the last five years," Athlon's preview read. "The schedule is very manageable for Swinney’s team and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see this program favored by double digits in most games. A road trip to Notre Dame on Nov. 7 is the toughest matchup on the slate."
Notre Dame is No. 9 on the list, and the ACC has two more reps with UNC (18) and Virginia Tech (24).Defending champ LSU is at #8
