Clemson's football team and South Carolina's women's basketball team were both named candidates Wednesday for Best Team honors at the ESPYs, the network's sports award program.
Joining Clemson as finalists in the "Best Upset" category are Mississippi State's win against CT in the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament and Denis Istomin's Australian Open win against Novak Djokovic.
Oklahoma first baseman Shay Knighten led the way to the Sooners' second consecutive national championship with big hits throughout the Women's College World Series.
Clemson won the National Championship this year with a 14-1 record, tying the FBS mark for wins in a season.
Gergen: Trump could beat Dems in 2020
Back in 2001 Hoyer and Pelosi faced each other for the top leadership position inside the Democratic caucus, but have largely worked collaboratively in the top two slots for years.
Prior to that, the last time Oklahoma was nominated for an ESPY came in 2009 when Sam Bradford and Blake Griffin were each in the running for Best Male College Athlete.
SC joins the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team as the only female entries on the seven-team list, which also includes the Chicago Cubs, Clemson Football, the Golden State Warriors, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the New England Patriots. In 2015, Lauren Chamberlain was nominated for Best Record Breaking Performance after setting the NCAA career home run record, while in 2013, the Sooners were up for Best Team after winning the 2013 national championship and Keilani Ricketts was nominated in the category of Best Female College Athlete. Clemson had wins over the No. 3, 2 and 1 teams in the nation and beat six teams that finished the season in the top 25. He also rushed for 43 yards and a score.
Voting is conducted on ESPN's web site.
