Clemson football with impermissible Face Time call

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Clemson's athletic department reported 15 violations to the NCAA in the past year, including three by the defending Atlantic Coast Conference football champions.

The school released its infractions report Tuesday after an open records request by The Associated Press.

None of the violations is considered serious. All but one of them is classified as a Level III infraction. Level III infractions are those the NCAA considers isolated or limited in nature; provide no more than a minimal recruiting, competitive or other advantage; and don't include more than a minimal impermissible benefit.

Three of the violations involved the football program, which starts the season ranked No. 2.

One came from an "accidental" FaceTime call placed by coach Dabo Swinney to a prospect before the allowable date of Sept. 1.
