Clemson out of top-10 in final regular season Coaches Poll


by -

The final Coaches Poll top 25 of the regular season featured the Tigers finishing out of the top-10.

Clemson didn't budge from a No. 11 ranking going into the week.

Two of the top-4 teams fell in conference championship games with Southern Cal losing 47-24 to Utah in Las Vegas and TCU dropping a 31-28 overtime decision to Kansas State in Dallas.

Clemson, 39-10 over UNC, was one of four top-11 teams going into the weekend to take their conference crown along with K-State, Georgia (50-30 over LSU) and Michigan (43-22 over Purdue).

Utah jumped the Tigers to No. 10, while Washington fell out of the top-10. Teams to not play this week and move up included Ohio State (+2 to No. 3), Alabama (+1 to No. 5) and Tennessee (+2 to No. 6).

The Tigers finished the regular season at No. 19 in the AP and No. 22 in the Coaches polls last year.

The final College Football Playoff rankings come up this afternoon, where the Tigers were at No. 9 going into the weekend.
