The Tigers stay ranked No. 2 in the Coaches Poll this week with 1511 points and 10 first-place votes after their impressive 45-10 road win over Louisville.

The top five teams were the same this week with Alabama, Clemson, LSU, Ohio State, and Oklahoma.

Wake Forest joins Clemson from the ACC at No. 23 in the rankings after their close win against Florida State. A few ACC teams got some votes outside of the Top 25 with Virginia (#27), Pittsburgh (#30), and Virginia Tech (#37).

Two teams that dropped out of the poll were No. 23 Washington (loss to Oregon) and No. 25 Temple (SMU).
