Clemson Places 5th in Capital One Cup Men's Standings

CLEMSON, S.C. – Spurred by national championship appearances in football and men’s soccer, Clemson finished 2015-16 ranked 5th in the men’s standings of the Capital One Cup, the Tigers’ highest finish in the six years of the Cup.

Stanford claimed its first Capital One Cup on the men’s side, with Southern California earning the women’s Cup. Schools earn points based on their teams’ top-10 finishes in NCAA Division I championships and in final official coaches’ polls across 21 women’s and 20 men’s sports as they compete to win the Capital One Cup trophy and a combined $400,000 in scholarships for student-athletes. Last year, the Capital One Cup was awarded to the University of Virginia men’s athletics program and Stanford University women’s athletics program. This is the sixth year of the Capital One Cup.

Earlier this summer, Clemson earned its highest finish in a decade in the Learfield Director’s Cup. The 2015-16 athletic year saw three ACC Championships claimed by Tiger teams (football, men’s golf and baseball) and nine programs earn berths in postseason play (baseball, football, men’s golf, women’s golf, women’s tennis, men’s soccer, women’s soccer, men’s track and women’s track).
