Gamecocks move to #6; Clemson falls to 17th
The South Carolina Gamecocks (4-0, 2-0 SEC) moved up to No. 6 in the AP college football poll following a 31-10 dismantling of Missouri (2-2, 0-2 SEC) on Saturday afternoon. It’s Carolina’s highest AP ranking since they checked in at No. 6 after defeating North Carolina in 2007 to improve to 6-1 on the season. It’s just the fifth time in school history that Carolina has been ranked sixth or better in the AP poll. Alabama sits atop the poll, followed by Oregon, LSU, Florida State, Georgia and South Carolina. Oregon took over the runner-up spot from LSU, following the Ducks’ rout of Arizona State, and the Tigers’ hard-fought 12-10 win over Auburn. Clemson falls from #10 to #17 in the AP poll following its 49-37 loss at #4 Florida State. View the complete poll here.
