CLEMSON -- For the second straight week the Tigers gained three spots in the latest coaches' poll. Clemson is now ranked 15th
and have been ranked in the top 25 in the USA Today poll for 25 consecutive weeks.
This is the second longest streak of consecutive weeks ranked in the top 25 in a poll in Clemson history.
The record for consecutive top 20 rankings is 41, set between the final poll of the 1986 season and the Oct. 10, 1989 poll. The Tigers were ranked between third and 17th in the nation in all 41 or those polls.


The record for consecutive weeks in the top 25 is 50 in a row between Oct. 24, 1989 and Oct. 19, 1992. The Tigers were ranked between 6 and 25 during that streak. Clemson was ranked between 21-25 in six of those 50 weeks. Clemson has had two other streaks of 14 weeks or more ranked in the top 20. One took place from Sept. 21, 1981 through Sept. 13, 1982, a 15-week streak, while the other took place between Oct.12, 1959 and Oct. 10, 1960, a 14-week streak.
