The Clemson Tigers have appeared on 25 Sports Illustrated covers over the years (not counting the vintage NFL Tiger covers listed below or the May 2016 issue of Sports Illustrated For Kids which has Deshaun Watson's rookie card inside or the basketball article from the January, 20th, 1997 issue). Also, in modern times, Sports Illustrated has released duplicate regional covers and some have Clemson related headings on each cover which are not included in this list since a Clemson cover is already listed for those dates.
