FBS teams: Clemson, South Carolina
Combined record: 22-4
When searching for the best college football, from top to bottom, look no further than the Palmetto State. Though South Carolina and Clemson are the only FBS programs in the state, they're regularly among the top teams in the country.
Both 11-2 a year ago (which includes Clemson's loss to South Carolina), both are on three-year streaks of 10 or more wins. Each won its bowl game in 2013, with Clemson taking the Orange Bowl over Ohio State and South Carolina downing Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl.
And their losses aren't too shabby, either. Clemson's other loss was to Florida State, while South Carolina fell on the road to Georgia and Tennessee…but also was the only squad to beat Central Florida and one of two to top Missouri.
While there are better individual teams out there, and some states have more good ones, there's one thing South Carolina has on all of them, or rather, doesn't have: no scrubs.
