Clemson rises to No. 1 in AP Poll after big win

Clemson is the new No. 1 team in The Associated Press college football poll, knocking Ohio State from the top spot for the first time this season.

The Tigers are top-ranked in the AP media poll for the first time since the final poll of the 1981 season, when Clemson won its only AP national title.

The Tigers (9-0) received 31 first-place votes and 1,489 points after beating Florida State 23-13 on Saturday. Ohio State (9-0) had 26 first-place votes and 1,460 points. The defending national champions have been first since the preseason, when they became the first team to be a unanimous preseason No. 1 in the 79-year history of the AP rankings.

No. 3 Alabama (8-1) climbed four spot and got two first place votes. No. 4 Baylor also received two first-place votes.
