Clemson is off to a dominant start on the season with blowout wins over Wake Forest and The Citadel, and the Tigers continue to dominate in the polls remaining firmly atop the AP and Coaches rankings this week. However, in the AP voting, the Tigers lost one first place vote from the previous week. Two pollsters, Dylan Sinn of Ft. Wayne, IN and Pat Dooley of Gainesville, FL, voted the Tigers second behind LSU and Alabama respectively. Alabama is second in both polls while Oklahoma is third in the AP and tied with Georgia for third in the Coaches.
