Clemson jumps to No. 2 in AP poll after beating Louisville


The Sooners (3-0) dropped to No. 3 after spending a week as the No. 2 team in the nation.

Kansas State, which held down the No. 18 spot in the AP poll last week, lost their first game in the season, falling at Vanderbilt 14-7.

The Crimson Tide claimed 59 of 65 first-place votes after handling Colorado State. Penn State and USC round out the top 5.

Clemson piled up 578 yards of total offense, including 297 on the ground, in a 47-21 victory at Louisville on Saturday night. Oklahoma 4. Penn State 5.

Also new to the top 25 are San Diego State, Utah and OR which are ranked 22nd, 23rd and 24th, respectively.

LSU fell all the way from 12th to 25th after getting smoked by Mississippi State, 37-7, on Saturday evening. Washington 8. MI 9. Three Big 10 teams, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio State round out the top 10.

Even with FSU football dropping in both polls, the conference is still tied for the most teams in the Top 16 of both polls as the ACC has four teams (Clemson, FSU, Va. Tech and Miami, who somehow moved up) in that group to tie them with the Big Ten.

New kids on the block: No. 19 Mississippi State, No. 24 Oregon, No. 25 San Diego State.

The highest ranked Group of Five team also resides in the state of Florida as the USF Bulls now sit at No. 21 in the AP poll and No. 17 in the Coaches poll.
