Clemson stays in latest Coaches Poll


by -

Clemson stayed in the top-25 in at least one poll this week.

The Tigers (3-2, 2-1 ACC) are ranked No. 25 in the Coaches Poll, dropping four spots, where Georgia moved to No. 1 (64 first-place votes) ahead of Iowa (1), Oklahoma, Cincinnati and Alabama.

Alabama had commanded 63 of the 65 first-place votes last week before falling at unranked Texas A&M, 41-38. The Crimson Tide loss was one of two defeats for top-4 teams (Penn State losing at Iowa, 23-20), three top-10 teams dropping a game (BYU lost at Boise State, 26-17) and four total ranked teams going down (Arkansas lost at Ole Miss, 52-51).

Wake Forest paces the ACC at No. 16 and NC State is also ranked, at No. 21.

Clemson returns to action after the bye week this Friday at Syracuse (3-3, 0-2) for a 7 p.m. broadcast start (ESPN).
