Clemson climbs into Top 10; Gamecocks slip to 18th

Clemson jumped five spots to No. 8 in the Associated Press college football poll after beating their third straight ranked foe, Virginia Tech on Saturday.

LSU remained atop the rankings and division foe Alabama hurdled Oklahoma into second place. The SEC has the top two teams in the nation for the 10th time in the last four seasons.

LSU (5-0) received 40 first-place votes and 1,473 points from a media panel after its 35-7 rout of SEC East foe Kentucky.

Alabama received 12 first-place votes and 1,435 points following a 38-10 road trouncing of SEC East rival Florida.

That wasn’t all. SEC West squad Arkansas (4-1) climbed from 18th to 10th with a 42-38 win over future SEC school Texas A&M, which fell from 14th to 24th. And defending national champion Auburn (4-1) returned to the poll at 15th following a 16-13 win at SEC East school South Carolina, which dropped from 10th to 18th.

Oklahoma (4-0) received seven first-place votes and was followed by Wisconsin (5-0) and Boise State (4-0), which kept a first-place vote but dropped one rung. Wisconsin jumped three slots after a 48-17 win over Nebraska.

Oklahoma State is sixth and Stanford, Clemson, Oregon and Arkansas complete the top 10.
