Clemson is still your unquestioned No. 1 in the Associated Press top 25 in the last scheduled weekly poll before the SEC begins play next weekend and the Big Ten is added back in the mix.

Unlike the Coaches Poll, the AP decided to keep the Big Ten teams out of things one more week after the conference reversed their decision to play this fall and released a schedule on Saturday.

Dabo Swinney’s Tigers (59 first-place votes) lead the same top-5 of Alabama (1), Oklahoma, Georgia and Florida. Reigning champ LSU has the other first-place vote.

More ACC teams check in with Notre Dame (7), UNC (11), Miami (12), Virginia Tech (20), Pitt (21) and Louisville (24).

Clemson (2-0) will host Virginia next on Oct. 3, which plays its season opener at home versus Duke next weekend.
