Clemson dropped to No. 2 behind Alabama in the new Associated Press Top 25 on Sunday.

The Tigers held 55 of the 62 first-place votes a week ago before the close call at UNC, a 21-20 win after being favored by nearly four touchdowns.

It was a week with no upsets in the top-10 but some standout performances, with blowout wins for Alabama (59-31 over Ole Miss), Ohio State (48-7 at Nebraska), Oklahoma (55-16 over Texas Tech) and Auburn (56-23 over Mississippi State). Georgia was on a bye after a closer-than-expected win over Notre Dame the week before (23-17).

The new top-10 is Alabama (1,478; 29 first-place votes), Clemson (1,426; 18 first-place votes), Georgia (1,375; 4 first-place votes), Ohio State (1,324; 7 first-place votes), LSU (1,322), Oklahoma (1,264), Auburn (1,186), Wisconsin (1,046), Notre Dame (996) and Florida (986).

Clemson, which holds a 20-game unbeaten run, had been No. 1 since the final ranking of the 2018 campaign in both the AP and Coaches polls.

The Tigers are joined in the AP ranking by Wake Forest (22) and Virginia (23) from the ACC, while week two foe Texas A&M hung on to a No. 25 spot.
