Clemson remained No. 13 in this week's BCS Standings, which were released Sunday night.

The Tigers, at 8-1, are ranked one spot behind Oklahoma, which is 6-2.

Clemson continues to be plagued by an unexpectedly weak strength-of-schedule. Virginia Tech's loss to Miami last Thursday further eroded the Tigers' SOS rating, which has already taken a hit from Auburn's poor season.

The Tigers are ranked behind three teams with two losses - No. 7 LSU, No. 8 South Carolina and Oklahoma.

Alabama continues to hold the No. 1 spot, followed by Kansas State, Oregon, Notre Dame, Georgia and Florida.

Clemson and No. 10 Florida State are the only ACC teams in the top 25.

Besides the Auburn weakness it doesn't help that every other ACC opponent except FSU rates poorly, too. A win over SC may help but not enough to get into contention.
