No Movement in Polls for Tigers


by -
    |

Clemson is ranked 12th in both polls
for the second straight week, the highest ranked ACC team in both
polls. Georgia Tech is ranked 13th by AP and
13th by USA Today, the second highest ranked
ACC team. Those two teams will meet at Death
Valley on October 21.

This is the third consecutive week
Clemson has been the highest ranked ACC
team in each poll. Prior to that you have to go
back to the October 22, 2000 poll to find the last
time Clemson was the top ranked team from the
league. Clemson actually was the highest
ranked team among ACC schools for three
consecutive weeks in October of 2000.

Clemson’s #12 ranking this week and last week is its
highest of this season and the highest ranking
for the program in the AP poll since the October
29, 2000 poll when Clemson was 10th by AP.
Clemson is also ranked 12th in the Harris
Interactive poll this week.

Clemson has been ranked in the top
25 of both polls in seven of the eight polls so far
this year and for 11 of the last 12 over two
years. Clemson was 21st in the final polls last
year.
