Clemson ranked No. 5 in latest Coaches Poll


by -

Clemson’s place in the latest Coaches Poll remained unchanged after the weekend.

No. 5 Clemson captured its second top-25 win in as many weeks with a victory over a unanimous No. 10 NC State, 30-20, at home. Top-ranked Georgia struggled but rallied late at Mizzou, 26-22, and therefore swapped spots at the top with Alabama, who pulled away from Arkansas on the road, 49-26. No. 3 Ohio State rolled over Rutgers, 49-10 and No. 4 Michigan kept Iowa at bay on the road, 27-14.

The ACC lost a couple of teams out of the Coaches Poll with FSU (31-21 to Wake Forest) and Pitt (26-21 to Georgia Tech) losing at home in conference action. NC State slipped only four spots to No. 14, Wake is up to No. 15 and Syracuse is No. 21.
