This week, they matched that mark, jumping Ohio State to No. 3 in the nation with their 2-0 record.
They have one first place vote like last week and sit behind Alabama (57 first place votes) and Oregon (one first place vote).

The Coaches Poll, which factors in the BCS formula, kept the Tigers at No. 5 with Alabama, Oregon, Ohio State and Stanford ahead of them.
Clemson opponents land at No. 9 (Florida State), No. 10 (Georgia) and No. 14 (South Carolina) there.
