Clemson is ranked No. 1 in the first 2015 College Football Playoff rankings, ahead of LSU and Ohio State. According to former CU wide receiver Daniel Rodriguez, who walked on to the team after serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, that is the way things should be. To celebrate the ranking, Rodriguez tweeted a picture of his rings from the Tigers' recent bowl wins over the two teams directly below them in the rankings.

Rodriguez and the Tigers beat LSU 25-24 in the 2012 Chick-fil-A Bowl, and Ohio State 40-35 in the 2013 Orange Bowl. With a fairly light ACC schedule ahead after Saturday's game against Florida State, the Tigers are in good position to stay in the top four.
