Despite wins, South Carolina and Clemson drop on AP Poll

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS/AP) -

Despite commanding wins Saturday, both South Carolina and Clemson dropped one spot in the AP Top 25 College Football Poll. 

After beating Wofford 24-7 Saturday, the (9-2) Gamecocks fell from 12th to 13th.

The 11th-ranked Clemson Tigers (10-1) fell to 12th after a 62-48 win over North Carolina State.

Both teams close out their seasons next Saturday night taking on each other at Death Valley.

Notre Dame is No. 1 and Alabama is No. 2, moving to the top of the rankings after Oregon and Kansas State were upset Saturday night.

The Fighting Irish are No. 1 for the first time since Nov. 14, 1993. The Fighting Irish were a unanimous No. 1, getting all 60 first-place votes. They are a victory against rival Southern California away from completing a perfect regular season and playing in the BCS championship game Jan. 7 in Miami.

A week after being upset as the No. 1 team, Alabama is back to No. 2, taking advantage of the two big upsets.

The Ducks had been No. 1 but fell in overtime to Stanford. Kansas State was No. 2 when it was beaten at Baylor.

Georgia improves from 5th to 3rd, followed by Ohio St. 4th. Oregon, Florida, Kansas St., LSU, Texas A&M and Florida St. fill out the rest of the top 10.
