3 ACC teams in AP Top 25 Poll; Clemson lands at No. 1

The 2020 AP Top 25 poll is out, and three ACC teams have landed inside. Once again, the Clemson Tigers top the poll, too.

    • No. 1 Clemson
    • No. 10 Notre Dame
    • No. 18 North Carolina

Some of these rankings should probably come with a bit of an asterisk, though, as college football looks to launch a season in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Big Ten and Pac-12 have postponed their 2020 fall football seasons; however, a combined nine teams from the two leagues are in the poll.

Clemson opens its 2020 schedule on Sept. 12 at Wake Forest.

Five other ACC teams received votes but landed outside the AP Top 25: Virginia Tech, Miami, Louisville, Virginia and Florida State.

The preseason USA TODAY Coaches Poll, which came out three weeks ago, featured four ACC teams: Clemson, Notre Dame, UNC and Virginia Tech.
