The AFCA announced its Academic Achievement Award recipients on Tuesday. SMU won the overall Academic Achievement Award for a 100 percent graduation rate for the class entering during the 2000-01 academic year. Clemson was one of 28 other institutions to receive honorable mention honors for at least a 70 percent graduation rate for the 2000-01 entering freshman class.
Nine ACC schools were among the 29 lauded by the AFCA on
Tuesday, five more than any other conference. The Big East and Big
12 were second with four schools apiece.
This is the third time Clemson has been recognized with at
least honorable mention honors by the AFCA for its graduation rate.
All three years have taken place since Tommy Bowden became the head
coach in 1999.

Top 25 schools in the USA Today final regular season poll according
to the NCAA's graduation success rate. Clemson had a 94 percent
