    |

Clemson is ranked 10th in AP, and 11th by USA Today. This is the fourth 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 #10 ranking this 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.


The win on September 16 over ninth-ranked Florida State was the second highest ranked team Clemson has defeated on the road in its history. The only win that is ranked higher is the 10-8 victory over eighth-ranked North Carolina in 1981.


Clemson has been ranked in the top 25 of both polls in eigth of the nine polls so far this year and for 12 of the last 13 over two years. Clemson was 21st in the final polls last year.
