Clemson jumped in Coaches Poll

Last week featured three No. 1-ranked teams in the major polls -- and the Coaches Poll top spot was the one that fell over the weekend in a 46-41 loss for Alabama at home to new No. 1 LSU.

Despite the Crimson Tide dropping, Clemson did not move up (still holding four first-place votes) -- jumped by CFP No. 1 Ohio State and its five first-place votes, with Alabama next and Georgia rounding out the top-5.

Clemson saw its lone ranked opponent on the schedule drop out with Wake Forest's loss at Virginia Tech, paving the way for an early division-clincher at NC State on Saturday.

The first College Football Playoff rankings did have Ohio State on top and that tends to shape other rankings, followed by LSU, Alabama, Penn State and Clemson. Two of that top-5 fell on Saturday -- Penn State the other to new Coaches No. 7 Minnesota (No. 17 in last CFP Poll) -- and should feature a shakeup in Tuesday's new rankings (7 p.m./ESPN).
