Clemson remains No. 1 in AP Top 25

No. 1 Clemson received 59 of 61 first-place votes and remained atop the Associated Press Top 25 college football poll released Sunday.

The Tigers (2-0) cruised to a 49-0 victory Saturday against The Citadel.

One week before Big Ten teams are eligible to rejoin the poll, the rest of the top 10 was nearly unchanged.

No. 2 Alabama (0-0) received one first-place vote and is followed by Oklahoma (1-0), Georgia (0-0) and Florida (0-0).

Defending national champion and No. 6 LSU (0-0) received the other first-place ballot.

No. 7 Notre Dame (2-0) didn’t gain any ground despite a 52-0 victory over South Florida. Texas (1-0) and Auburn (0-0) are tied at No. 8, with Texas A&M (0-0) rounding out the top 10.

No. 12 Miami (2-0) was the week’s biggest mover, climbing five spots after a 47-34 win at Louisville (1-1), which fell from 18th to 24th in the rankings.

No. 15 Oklahoma State (1-0) fell four spots after struggling in a season-opening 16-7 win against Tulsa.

No. 25 Marshall (2-0) is the only newcomer this week, ranked for the first time since 2014. The Thundering Herd knocked former No. 23 Appalachian State (1-1) out of the poll with a 17-7 win on Saturday.
