Gamecocks improve in AP Top 25 College Football Poll

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS/AP) -

A win over in-state rival Clemson Saturday lifted the University of South Carolina in the AP Top 25 College Football Poll.

After the 27-17 win at Memorial Stadium Saturday night, the (10-2, 6-2 SEC) Gamecocks improved from 13th to 11th in the college football rankings.  Clemson dropped in the poll from 12th to 15th.

USC improved from 12th to 10th in the USA Today/ESPN Coach's poll.

Notre Dame is No.1 with nothing left to do but wait to find out who its opponent in the national championship game will be.

No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia, both easy winners in rivalry games Saturday, held their spots in the rankings and will play for the SEC title in Atlanta next weekend.

Ohio State remained No. 4 after completing its perfect season with a victory against Michigan. The Buckeyes (12-0) are banned from the postseason because of NCAA sanctions.

Florida, Oregon, Kansas St., Stanford, LSU and Texas A&M round out the top ten.

Toward the bottom of the rankings, there was plenty of movement. Ten Top 25 teams lost this weekend, the most since Oct. 11, 2003.

    With offenses becoming increasingly explosive, plugging the holes is more imperative than ever. It's no surprise Alabama and Florida top the list, but the rest of the rankings may surprise you.
