Clemson (9-1, 6-1 ACC) dropped to the #5 ranking in the latest Amway Coaches Poll on Sunday afternoon. The Tigers are only 14 points behind Michigan for the fourth spot.

Pittsburgh's 43-42 win over Clemson was the biggest upset over a top four opponent in the CFB Playoff era, based on ESPN's FPI pregame chance to win.

The biggest risers were the USC Trojans jumping up seven spots in the rankings with their win over Washington. North Carolina fell 11 spots to #24 after their rivalry loss to Duke.

No. 22 Virginia Tech and No. 25 Baylor fell out of this week's Top 25 poll.
