Clemson is ranked 19th by both the AP and USA Today, dropping from the top 10 after the loss to Virginia Tech on Thursday night.


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 nine of the ten polls so far this year and for 13 of the last 14 over two years. Clemson was 21st in the final polls last year.
