Clemson drops spot in new AP Poll

A weekend with two upsets in the top-10 shifted Clemson's spot in the latest Associated Press Top 25.

Previous-No. 3 Georgia lost to South Carolina at home and former-No. 7 Florida dropped a game at previous No. 5 LSU, which propelled LSU three spots to No. 2 (1,449 points), followed by Clemson (1,427), Ohio State (1,404) and Oklahoma (1,333). Alabama stayed in the top spot (1,503), which it has held since Clemson's close call with UNC.

Alabama has 30 first-place votes, compared to 12 for LSU, 11 for Clemson and nine for Ohio State.

The ACC's other two representatives dropped out of the poll in Virginia and Wake Forest. No Clemson regular-season opponents are currently-ranked.
