Clemson moves up to No. 8 in the ESPN/USA Today coaches' poll released on Sunday. The Tigers were ranked 13th and 15th in the AP and coaches' polls last week. The last time Clemson was ranked inside the Top 10 in either poll was the 2008 preseason poll in which the Tigers were ranked No. 9 in both polls.
