After handing the Georgia Bulldogs their first loss of the season in front of a national television audience Saturday night, the Clemson Tigers have moved up several spots in the latest college football polling.
Clemson jumped up from No. 8 in both the Associated Press Poll and USC Today Coaches Poll to No. 4 and No. 5 respectively following its 38-35 home win. Georgia slipped to No 11 in the AP Poll and No. 12 in the Coaches Poll.
The Tigers received one first place vote in the AP polling and have their best showing in that poll since Sept. 12, 1988, when they were No. 3.
The University of South Carolina Gamecocks are ranked No. 6 in both polls after rolling over North Carolina Thursday night. That's one spot better than last week in the Coaches Poll and the same in the AP Poll.
Alabama kept the number one ranking in Both polls. Oregon and Ohio State switched spots in both polls, with Ohio State taking the number two spot in the Coaches Poll and Oregon taking the number two spot in the AP Poll.
The Gamecocks will travel to Athens Saturday to take on the Bulldogs.
Clemson will play South Carolina State at home.
