Clemson lost two first-place votes this week after pulling away to a 34-7 win over Boston College.

A week with close calls, but few major upsets kept the status quo for Clemson in the Coaches Poll, which came in at No. 2 again.

A couple coaches changed their mind on the Tigers being the nation's best, however, dropping from six first-place votes to four.

Alabama leads the poll with 59 first-place votes after a 59-0 win at Vanderbilt this week.

Clemson heads to No. 12 Virginia Tech this week, who moved up one spot.
