Clemson Tigers National Championship Odds
Alabama has long been the most dominant college football team in the country, but the Clemson Tigers are making a run at them. Clemson blasted the Crimson Tide in last year’s College Football Playoff to win a second national championship in the last few years and has eyes on another in 2019.
Coach Dabo Swinney has things humming at the school and the offense is set up to be one of the best in the country. Quarterback Trevor Lawrence is going to be on the short list of Heisman Trophy contenders and he has an embarrassment of riches at the skill positions to get the ball to. Expectations are through the roof once again for this team as the regular season approaches.

Clemson went 15-0 last season and made easy work of both the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and Alabama in the College Football Playoff. It was an absolutely dominant season as the Tigers proved they had the talent on hand to beat anyone in the country. The Tigers get dinged for playing in the ACC, which is not as tough as the SEC, but proved that no matter the schedule this team was the cream of the crop in 2018.
Lawrence was a star, finishing the season with 3,280 yards passing, 30 touchdowns and four interceptions as a freshman, and there is already buzz that he will eventually be the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft when he leaves college. His return has the Clemson offense feeling giddy, and while Hunter Renfrow is off to the NFL, the group still boasts standouts like wide receiver Justyn Ross, wideout Tee Higgins and running back Travis Etienne. This group should light up the scoreboard in 2019.
The big question this year is on defense. Clemson lost three key defensive linemen as Clelin Ferrell, Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence all headed to the NFL. The secondary remains almost intact, and there will be plenty of time for any new pieces to jell together as Clemson’s schedule is not too tough.

Prior to Swinney taking over the program in 2008, Clemson had seven seasons of 10 or more victories since the school began competing on the gridiron in 1902. The Tigers currently have eight straight 10-plus win seasons to their credit, and they’ve reached the College Football Playoff in each of the last four seasons. The Tigers have turned into a juggernaut under Swinney and figure to be in the national championship conversation year in and year out with him at the helm.
An original member of the ACC, Clemson has been a constant threat on the football field. During their tenure in the conference, the Tigers have competed in 36 bowl games, including a run of 14 straight and 19 in the past 20 seasons. Beginning in 1977, the Tigers put together a string of 15 consecutive non-losing seasons and captured their first National Championship with a perfect 12-0 record in 1981. The 80s were a glorious time for Clemson football with the program never having a losing record and ending the decade with four straight 10-2 campaigns.
Clemson spun its wheels after that, never winning more than nine games and placing in the top-20 of the final AP poll just once. Swinney took over midway through the 2008 campaign and by his third full season he reenergized the program. The Tigers have won four straight ACC Championships and are the heavy favorites to grab another conference title in 2019.
