Clemson’s win over then 21st ranked Auburn has earned the Tigers their first appearance of the season in the AP and coaches polls. Snapping Auburn’s 17 game winning streak has landed Clemson at number 21 in the AP and 22nd in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll.
The 3-0 Tigers will play host to Florida State (11th AP, 14th Coaches) Saturday at 3:30 in Death Valley.
USC’s squeaker against Navy didn’t much impress the voters in the AP poll. The Gamecocks dropped two spots to 12th in this week’s poll. That is down two spots from 10th a week ago.
The Gamecocks did move up one spot from 10th to 11th in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches’ poll.
USC is 3-0 and will play 3-0 Vanderbilt Saturday night in Columbia.
Oklahoma remains the top team in both polls. LSU is second in the AP and Alabama has the second spot in the coaches ranking.
