Clemson ranked No. 2 in latest Coaches Poll


by -

Alabama and Clemson stayed atop the Coaches Poll in a weekend with two top-10 teams going down.

Previous-No. 3 Georgia dropped after a shocking overtime loss to South Carolina at home, while previous No. 7-Florida fell at former-No. 6 LSU. LSU moved up to No. 3, gathering three first-place votes, followed by Ohio State (4 first-place votes) and Oklahoma. Alabama gained a pair of first-place votes (44) and Clemson lost six (14).

The ACC's previously-ranked opponents, Wake Forest (17) and Virginia (19), both fell out after losing this weekend. The closest Clemson regular-season opponent to being ranked is the Demon Deacons, with the 26th-most points.
