Gamecocks, Tigers move up in national polls

September 16, 2012

The South Carolina football team climbed one spot in both the Associated Press and USA Today/Coaches polls, released on Sunday.  The Gamecocks (3-0, 1-0 SEC) moved up to No. 7 in the AP poll and to No. 8 in the Coaches poll following a convincing 49-6 win over UAB (0-2) on Saturday night. 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.  Alabama sits atop both polls, followed by SEC rival LSU, Oregon and Florida State. Georgia and Oklahoma are flip-flopped in the No. 5 and 6 slots, with South Carolina and West Virginia flip-flopped for the No. 7 and 8 spots in the two national polls.  Clemson moves up one spot to #10 in AP poll and two spots to #9 in the Coaches poll, following a 41-7 win over Furman on Saturday.  It was the Tigers’ 30th consecutive win in the series with the Paladins.  Next weekend, the Tigers hit the road for an ACC battle with #4 Florida State in Tallahassee, while South Carolina faces Missouri in the SEC Eastern division play at Williams Brice Stadium.
