Clemson’s 36 game regular season winning streak and 28 game ACC winning streak came to an end late Saturday night with that double-overtime loss at Notre Dame. As a result, no AP voter gave the Tigers a first place vote, but they did vote the Tigers high enough to keep them in the top four. In fact, the Tigers are 4th in this week’s ranking trailing new #1 Alabama and new #2 Notre Dame. Ohio State remained at #3. 59 of the 62 first place votes went to the Crimson Tide. USC slayer Texas A&M moved up two spots to #5. Coastal Carolina, which moved to 7-0 with a win over South Alabama, remained #15 with one voter ranking the Chants as high as #11. The coaches matched the AP with their top four teams but have Florida 5th and A&M 6th. The coaches ranked Coastal 17th.
