Tigers take hard fall in AP Poll

By

The new AP Top 25 college football poll was released Sunday following Week 10 of the season.

Clemson (8-1, 6-0 ACC) is now ranked No. 12 in the latest AP Top 25.

The Tigers were previously ranked No. 5 in the AP Poll.

Notre Dame (6-3) took advantage of a pair of non-offensive touchdowns and an interception deep in Tiger territory that led to another score to defeat Clemson, 35-14, on Saturday night at Notre Dame Stadium. Defensively, Clemson allowed a season-high 263 rushing yards.

The loss snapped Clemson’s nation-leading 14-game winning streak. Earlier in the evening, by virtue of Pitt’s win over Syracuse, the Tigers clinched a place in the ACC Championship Game, which takes place in Charlotte on Dec. 3.

With its 2022 road slate now complete, Clemson will conclude the regular season with a three-game homestand, beginning with Saturday’s contest against Louisville at Death Valley (3:30 p.m., ESPN).
