Tigers Move Up in Football Polls

Clemson moves up one position to number 24 in the top 25 polls this week.

Clemson was the highest ranked ACC team in all three polls
for four weeks, a streak that ended with Clemson’s 24-7 loss at Virginia
Tech. The Tigers were 10th in the nation in the polls and 12th in the
BCS entering the Virginia Tech game. Clemson’s top 10 ranking after
the win over Georgia Tech was its first first since October 29, 2000
when Clemson was 10th in the AP poll.

The win on September 16 over ninth-ranked Florida State was
the second highest ranked team Clemson has defeated on the road in its
history. The only win that is ranked higher is the 10-8 victory over
eighth-ranked North Carolina in 1981.

Clemson has been ranked in the top 25 of both polls in 11 of
the 13 polls so far this year and for 15 of the last 17 over two years.
Clemson was 21st in the final polls last year.
