Clemson is one of 13 Division I programs to play in a bowl game, the NCAA men’s basketball tournament and the NCAA baseball tournament. Clemson is one of just six to reach the Super regional and play in the other two.

Joining Clemson on the list are three other ACC schools in Boston College, Florida State and North Carolina. The others on the list include Kansas, LSU, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Utah.
