Clemson’s blowout win at Syracuse kept the Tigers at third in the latest AP top 25 poll. Clemson is 5-0 and getting ready for a home game with Boston College next week. The Tigers are third behind top ranked Alabama and number two Oregon.
USC has won three straight and is 4-1, but the Gamecocks continue to cede ground in the polls by virtue of how they are winning. A seven point margin against lowly Kentucky dropped USC from 13th to 14th in this week’s poll. Miami moved past the Gamecocks to the 13 spot this week.
A couple of other notables: Florida State, who will visit Clemson in two weeks, is sixth this week. Georgia, coming off a scare at Tennessee is seventh in the poll. LSU is 10th.
