USC’s loss at Auburn dropped the Gamecocks to 20th in this week’s AP top 25. The Gamecocks were 12th in the poll last week. USC is dropped from 15th to 22nd in the ESPN/USA Today coaches’ poll. Auburn, fresh off back to back wins over Clemson and Carolina is up to 10th in the new AP poll and 11th in the coaches’ poll.
Alabama remains the number one team in both polls. The Gamecocks are off this week and will play host to the Crimson Tide next on October 9th. Bama will play 7th ranked Florida this weekend.
Clemson (2-1) is still in the “others receiving votes” category in both polls, but that could change if the Tigers can pull out a win against Miami this week. The Hurricanes are ranked 16th in this week’s AP poll and 17th in the coaches’ poll. The Tigers and Canes will play at Noon Saturday at Death Valley.
