Clemson ranked No. 1 in latest AP Poll

Clemson strengthened its grip on the No. 1 spot in the Associated Press Top 25 on Monday.

The Tigers are again ahead of Alabama and Georgia, as well as Oklahoma and Ohio State in the top-5. Clemson gained a couple points in the vote totals (1,542 from 1,540; 54 first-place votes) on Alabama (1,493 from 1,496; 8 first-place votes) from the preseason poll.

Clemson was ranked preseason No. 1 in the AP Poll for the first time in school history back in August, coming off of a final 2018 season poll No. 1 after the 44-16 win over Alabama in January.

Clemson was also No. 1 in the Coaches Poll on Monday with 58 of the 64 first-place votes.
