Last season, the Tigers put together an impressive campaign and earned the No. 1 ranking in the nation.

After disposing of the Oklahoma Sooners in the College Football Playoff national semifinal, Swinney and his team fell just short against Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide.

Despite the national championship game loss, Dabo Swinney picked up numerous Coach of the Year awards.

Add in the fact that the team will return star quarterback Deshaun Watson and welcome wide receiver Mike Williams back to the field, the Tigers should have a great chance at returning to the College Football Playoff for a second consecutive year.
