Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd celebrates a touchdown pass in the first half against Duke.

Clemson moved up a spot from 14th to 13th in the USA Today Coaches Poll, and there was little movement to suggest anything other than a bid later today to the Chick-fil-A Bowl for the Tigers.

Clemson also climbed a spot, from 15th to 14th, in the AP Top 25.

Notre Dame and Alabama retained the No. 1 and 2 positions in the USA Today poll, while Georgia, as expected, slipped behind Oregon and Florida into fifth place.

Kansas State climbed a spot to sixth, LSU dropped one position to seventh, Stanford moved ahead of Texas A&M into eighth, while South Carolina, Oklahoma and Florida State retained the 10-11-12 spots.

Clemson stands 14th, followed by Oregon State, Boise State, Northern Illinois, Northwestern, Louisville, UCLA and Utah State. Oregon State moved up three spots, Northern Illinois climbed two positions, Louisville jumped five spots, and Boise State was unchanged.

The final five are Nebraska, which tumbled nine spots, Michigan, Wisconsin, San Jose State, and Texas.
