Clemson stays outside top-5 in AP Poll

There was movement in the top-5 of the Associated Press rankings this week, but that did not change Clemson's place in the poll.

Oregon vaulted to No. 4 after a top-5 win at Ohio State Saturday, 35-28. Alabama still tops the poll, followed by Georgia, Oklahoma, Oregon and Iowa, which also grabbed a top-25 win at Iowa State, leaving Dabo Swinney's Tigers No. 6 again.

Elsewhere among top-10 teams going into the weekend, Alabama dominated FCS opponent Mercer (48-14), Georgia rolled UAB in its home opener (56-7), Oklahoma obliterated Western Carolina (76-0), Texas A&M came back late at Colorado (10-7) and saw a drop to No. 7 from No. 5, Cincinnati cruised against Murray State (42-7) and Notre Dame rallied at home against Toledo (32-29), falling to No. 12.

The ACC's other ranked teams won this week with No. 15 Virginia Tech beating Middle Tennessee (35-14), No. 21 UNC rolling Georgia State (59-17) and No. 24 Miami holding on to a win over App. State, 25-23.

Clemson hasn't given up a defensive touchdown through two games, a 49-3 win over SC State on Saturday and a 10-3 loss to No. 2 Georgia to open the season in Charlotte.
