150 Greatest National Champions: 3

3. 2018 Clemson (15-0)

All-Time Season Score: 33.1700
Key Season Score Element: 467 point differential
Best Win: Clemson 44, Alabama 16 (CFP Championship)
Worst Game: Clemson 27, Syracuse 23

2018 Clemson was very, very, very close to being No. 1, and because of the quirky nature of how the top team in the National Champion Season Rankings got to that spot, go ahead and call this the No. 1A greatest season of all-time.

Only one other national champion – that No. 1 squad – won more than 14 games than the 15-0 Tigers, who were pushed hard by Texas A&M in a 28-26 thriller in College Station, and survived a scary 27-23 battle with Syracuse.

But that was about it. There wasn’t any drama over the last ten games, closing out with an epic finishing kick.

Clemson rolled past Pitt in the ACC Championship, an unbeaten Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl part of the College Football Playoff semifinals, and a seemingly all-timer of an Alabama squad in the CFP national championship by a combined score of 116-29.

This was the proverbial team that got better as the season went on. That’s not supposed to happen in a 15-win season.

Wins (15): Furman (48-7), at Texas A&M (28-26), Georgia Southern (38-7), at Georgia Tech (49-21), Syracuse (27-23), at Wake Forest (63-3), NC State (41-7), at Florida State (59-10), Louisville (77-16), at Boston College (27-7), Duke (35-6), South Carolina (56-35), Pitt (42-10, ACC Championship), Notre Dame (30-3, Cotton Bowl/College Football Playoff), Alabama (44-16, CFP National Championship)

Losses (0): None

Quality Wins (11): at Texas A&M, Georgia Southern, at Georgia Tech, Syracuse, at Wake Forest, NC State, at Boston College, Duke, South Carolina, Notre Dame, Alabama

Elite Wins (2): Notre Dame, Alabama

Bad Wins (2): Furman, Louisville
