Clemson is off to a 5-0 start and has won 20 consecutive games, but its less than convincing 21-20 victory over North Carolina didn’t impress voters enough to keep the Tigers atop the polls. Clemson was edged by Alabama in the Coaches‘ Poll despite receiving more first-place votes (30-29). It’s the first time this season that Clemson hasn’t been ranked atop both major polls.
