The current College Football season isn't even over and we already have a way-too-early preseason Top 25 poll for next season.

Good news for Clemson fans is that your team should still be elite in 2018 despite a frustrating season-ending 24-6 loss to Alabama in the College Football Playoff.

"Business as usual for Dabo Swinney," Sporting News said. "The Tigers will suffer losses to the NFL Draft, but Kelly Bryant is back, running back Travis Etienne is a value pick for the Heisman Trophy and the defensive line can re-tool around Dexter Lawrence. The arrival of five-star freshmen Trevor Lawrence and Xavier Thomas only reinforces the point: Clemson isn't going anywhere."

ACC teams in the Top 25 included No. 2 Clemson, No. 7 Miami, No. 15 Virginia Tech, and No. 19 Florida State.
