The Clemson Tigers are back in the national polls.


The Tigers are ranked 21st in the Associated Press Poll and are ranked 22nd in the Coaches Poll. Both polls were released Sunday.


Clemson is coming off of a 38-24 win over No. 21 Auburn on Saturday, breaking the defending national champions’ 17-game winning streak.


This week, the Tigers play host to Florida St., which lost to top-ranked Oklahoma on Saturday. Florida St. is ranked No. 11 in the AP and 14th in the Coaches.


The last time Clemson was ranked in the AP Poll was on January 5th, 2010, following Clemson’s win over Kentucky in the Music City Bowl. Clemson was ranked 24th in that poll.


The last Clemson was ranked in the Coaches’ Poll was before the loss at South Carolina at the end of the 2009 regular season, when the Tigers were ranked 16th.
