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.
