Clemson extends lead at No. 1 in AP Poll

Clemson continued to add to its point total as the No. 1 in the Associated Press Top 25.

The Tigers (1,544 points; 56 first-place votes) lead Alabama (1,489; 6 first-place votes), Georgia (1,385) and LSU (1,336) and Oklahoma (1,315).

Clemson is one of only three teams nationally with a pair of wins over Power 5 conference teams already (UNC and Hawaii the others).

The 24-10 win over former No. 12 Texas A&M was one of the top victories on the weekend, along with LSU’s 45-38 win at former No. 9 Texas.

Clemson is joined by Virginia from the ACC, which debuted at No. 25.
