AP Top 25 College Football Poll: Clemson, LSU Rise In Week 9 Rankings

2,904

There was plenty of movement in the latest AP Top 25 poll entering Week 9 of the college football season.

Clemson moved up three spots from No. 6 to No. 3 after its historic 58-0 win over Miami on Saturday. The Tigers and LSU both jumped TCU as the Horned Frogs fell from No. 4 to No. 5 on a bye week.

The most notable teams that fell in the rankings were Florida State and Utah. The Seminoles dropped eight spots after losing in dramatic fashion to Georgia Tech, and the Utes fell 10 places following a disappointing defeat to an unranked USC team.
